You do need min ~10 knots to have a FW course race enviroment, so
if your area avg. below that than raceboards might be a better option

As for background of FW racers, if they started windsurfing 15 years ago or
in some third world country with limited excess to modern gear, than yes
most did race longboards prior

But if you started later and had budget/access to short boards,
than it's short board->FW

For some I know, formula was the first board after couple of begginer lessons
It's so stable, it's easy for begginer to use and you definetly don't outgrow it!
