ilan_s Support the message above. I am about 260lb, sail the Mahalo almost exclusively the last couple of years.
It took me a couple of years to realize that what may hold for “normal” sailors, do not apply for me. The wide beginner’s boards do well the first week. Planing a Start-board in footstraps is advanced technique even for people below 200lb.
The Mahalo can also be used as tandem, works well with almost 500lb.

Remi Hi Bear,

First what you would like to do :

- Learn windsurf?
- Slalom?
- Formula?
- Race-Board?
- Which sails you have?

More easy to answer you if you give us a direction, thanks

All the best
