Emir633, 4-years windsurfing can seem like a long time, but during this 4-years how often have you got out? One a month, once a week or every day. Some one sailing every day for 12-months will have more "time on water" (experience) than an average week-end warrior.

Roger asked all the right questions and made all the comments. Could you answer his questions to help get the right answers to you?

As screamer pointed out, you recently started a thread about "how not to get catapulted". Although we crash & burn from time to time, Im wondering if "full on" slalom kit is suitable for some one asking this question.

You might be better asking your self "am I really ready/prepaired to give slalom kit a go. You will no the true answer.

As already pointed out, today's slalom kit is way easier to use compaired to the old school Sputniks etc, and modern kit has a much wider wind range making kit selection much easier.

One option would be to buy a second hand slalom board like a Sonic 100 or earlier iS94 and get a couple of used freerace sails. If you like it, then jump and get newer kit.

One thing I would say is, stepping out of our comfort zone is a good thing, initial struggles are often rewarded by moving on to another level.

Don't think about it to much, just go for it, what's the worst that can happen???
