RE: Early planning gear light weight sailors
I would agree with those numbers as well. And I agree with Lampi, the big rigs are quite heavy. When I'm not in shape, my back gets very sore after a couple of hours... so I try to stay in shape. :-)
As for kiting, I was not trying to convince someone to stay away from kiting. I was just sharing the reason why I didn't want to do kiting. If I were to spend money on a kite and board, that would be money NOT spent on windsurfing. ;-) Kiting is a valid option for the discussion. I apologize.
