I practised some windsurfing a few years ago. Im completly out of the world but decided to start again.
The problem that I face is that I have a Bic board which I think has around 160L. I tried to sail in the northsea where the waves are long and deep if there is a good wind. I have 2 problems.
I try to do a waterstart but I experience that I'm not able to lift my sail out of the watter. So what kind of sails do I use today? With or without Camber? I have a 6.4 without and this is like lifting my mother in law out of the water. No Cambers inside.
So when I can not get out of the water I have to move my 95Kg out of the watter and get on my board to lift the sail out. Please stop smiling
On my bic board this is not possible because I sink and the board is not stable. So Im looking for a board which can hold my weight and at the same time gives my the possibility to grow. Also the possibility of gybe on this board is a must.
I saw the Go 185 with a lot of volume. But it is so small? Do this small boards give the same stability then the older boards with the same volume?
Also please advice or give me a link where I can learn more about the sail which I can use. I understand it is not your task to give me the beginings of windsurfing, who knows I'm a potential worldchampion
Thanks for your effort in coming back to this request.
