I do plan to go to Mission Bay in San Diego but I live very close to Dana Point so the majority of time I'll launch from Baby Beach in the harbor and head to the ocean.
I did not weigh 225lbs when I windsurfed in Hawaii. Over the years I have added weight, but I'm actually in better shape and far stronger now. The biggest change is that where I used to love the adrenalin high that jumping off waves brought, now I realize that I break and I'd be scared to do the air at this point in life. What I really want is a board that I can launch in the harbor (recognizing that it is crowded at times so I'll have to keep the speed down) and will still have high speed capability in the ocean.
To be able to up-haul, what liter displacement should I look for?
Thank you for your help.
