Default bic samba and alpha 291

hello, i have been away from windsurfing for a few years now. i am wanting to get back in again very badly. my previous boards have been longboards. i havent learned to waterstart yet. i am trying to find the cheapest way to get back into the sport. i have been offered to use a couple of boards from a friend to borrow while i am getting my finances together to look for a used one of my own. one is a bi samba 170 liters and the other an alpha 291 125 liters aka fanatic ultra shark 291. i weigh 145 pounds. do you think either of these boards have advantages over the other board. i do want to learn to waterstart. would either board be easier to learn that skill on. i sail mainly in 5-15 mph winds on lake norman in charlotte nc. i take trips to the nc coast as well as hatteras as often as i can. any insight and helpful suggestions we be very much appreciated. thanks, len
