Best Sail for beginners??
What is the best sail for a novice around 70 kgs???

If you are starting, a 4.2 would be great for wind 10 knts and less. It is not enough to plane, but will be easy to manage and uphaul.

Anyway too wide question, but pheraphs on a wide board I'd start with a cheap dacron school sail like the one I've just bought used on for my girlfriend, 20 euro + 7-8 of shipping. Superlight and easy to use on various types of masts.
Decathlon boom for beginners, no extension, cut down at about 180 cm, 20 euro at local Trocathlon market, 70 euro +shipping for an used Fiberspar Breeze mast. Almost he lightest and cheapest rig ever seen, if my girlfriend doesn't start windsurfing with it my attempts are over...
Here I'm, testing it in 3 knots:

The sail with the cat looks great. Indeed, I'm looking something to work in under 12 knots... I want to windsurf on a lake nearby and the wind is quite low.
