Is there a board for me?
 
Hi
Just wondering if you can help me, I grew up windsurfing literally, mainly racing and freestyle on the windsurfer class board in australia.
But that was 20 years ago I am 39 now and 100 odd kilos 220 pounds and no where near as fit.
I am living in Hong Kong where the breeze is fickle but it can blow. there is good venues where the wind blows parrael to the coast, I certainly dont want a high performance board that will sink on me. I do want to be able to rope start, What do you suggest?
Cheers anth

Anth,

Glad to hear that you are getting back into the sport. I would go with either the Formula board or the 144 Isonic. These boards have some great volume and ease to use but are super competitive all the way to the top level. You will never out grow one of these boards as far as speed and ability!

Hope this helps.

Kevin
