Default Which board? From where?

Hi All, just joined today so go easy!! This has been my first summer windsurfing and its been great, although not sure where the wind has gone currently!

Anyway to business i currently sail a jp 180 ssh! but good news is i want a starboard.........just not sure as to whether i should plum for the go or carve? Vitals are 100 (ish kilo's) planning sometimes! in front footstrap mostly, I sail on flatwater ponds at the mo but would like to progress to the coast imminentley. I want a board that will grow with me for a while and provide me with lots of fun and challenges over the next couple of years. Any ideas?

Also having spent a small fortune this summer and wanting to keep the jp to introduce friends to the sport my budget is not massive so looking for second hand or ex demo/hire any advice greatfully recieved.

Welcome Welshtrowy

You have a 180 lit board, you are planing, you want to sail on the coast, and want a board you won't outgrow for a while (so Go is out of the question I'd say). The last part means that you'll struggle a bit in the begining but don't let that put you off. I think I see a healthy dose of enthusiasm in your post, so go smaller (relative to your weight of course).

Not bigger than, say, a Carve133 (around 70cm width) or similar.
