NO, NO, NO. That board is way too small, way too fragile & has a very sharp nose that your sails will hate & your mast would love to take off. That board is designed for planing so if you throw a very small sail on it you will have difficulty balancing or staying up wind. If you throw a large sail on that Seatrend the fact that it sits low in the water will create a huge amount of drag until it gets on a plane leading to catapults & mast impacts on that pointy nose. Even in a steady wind with an expert instructor right next to you that would be a tough board to learn on without incurring some damage on it. Those were super fragile boards.
