Inland lake conditions of 8-10 knots 90% of the time, just shouts to me that one of the answers is: buy a longboard. (Those are the conditions I've sailed in most of the time since 1984.)

I've seen an inflatable SUP that was stiff enough I could understand it's lightweight appeal for someone who is not a competitive racer. Yet compared with the stiffness of a normal windsurfer I find...

The question of whether to wear a PFD or not is often answered using a flawed risk analysis. Windsurfers tend to correctly judge that the likelihood of needing a PFD is very low. But, stopping the...

My 2 cents: If safety is an issue, such as wave sailing in front of serious rocks, then replace sails before they break. If safety is not an issue, such as in my flat water sailing, then replace...

IF, anyone of Antoine Albeau's stature was caught cheating there wouldn't be any rumors. IF, that happened it would be NEWS! No news, therefore the alleged rumor is a hoax.

Hi Myles,
I'm guessing at 50 kmph a 7.5 or even a 7.0 would give you serious control problems unless you weigh enough that the 6.0 is too small to get you planing at 30 kmph.

Jack,
I've always had a longboard then added a formula board and later a 135 ltr shortboard. If the wind strength is marginal for planing I usually decide to sail the longboard because I know I'll...

Jack, I'm curious about the windspeed range your new board would fit, 10-15 mph, 12-17 mph, 14-19 mph?
