RE: A real STARTBOARD LONGBOARD???
Oh, one more interesting thought. SUP boards like these don't have to be limited to windsurfing shops. I can easily see this type of product in the classic surf shops. Although there are no windsurfing shops anywhere close to where I live (absolutely nothing for over 120 miles), there are many local surf shops. I think that if a slightly different distribution model was investigated and tapped, the whole thing could easily be much more dynamic and offer the potential for tremendous growth. As the Guest poster above so insightfully noted, windsurfing could easily be a feasible outgrowth the existing surfing/SUP market.
