RE: Is Starboard F-type good for me?
Yeah, don't believe people who say non-planing windsurfing isn't the real thing. And remember that longboards DO plane when the wind comes up, and can go very fast. Basically, they do it all. Check out the video on http://www.exocet-original.com/forum/read.asp?ID=1793
Some earlier posters had a good idea; you could get the F-type, and get a cheap used longboard to complement it.
But if you just want one board, longboard is the way to go.
I am a fairly advanced windsurfer, but if I only had one board it would definitely be a longboard.
