Default RE: A real STARTBOARD LONGBOARD???

I guess that the whole point is, for 95% of the recreational windsurfers, to be able to have REAL fun in 2 to 10 knots of wind which is the most experienced daily windstrength on 90% of the planet..
For many (really many) of us the fancy suntanned hi wind and wave adventure is only part of the magazine covers or a rare holiday.

If Starboard is able to come up with a design that can add frequent fun, exercise and action to us 95% living in those 90% conditions I guess there is an unlimited marked for THE MASSES...
Actually I guess, worldwide seen, that a true niche setup for the crowd consists of a sub 80 litre wave board and and smaller than 5.5m sail...
