Default RE: A real STARTBOARD LONGBOARD???

Regarding stand-up paddling in lakes or places where there are no waves to catch, wouldn't an old windsurfing longboard work just as good as a SUP board? Maybe all you need is a long paddle and your old bic or mistral? I'm going to try it when it warms up around here.

Funny... I have the same thought. I actually have a '99 Mistral SLE 311 which is 311 by 69 cm. I'm thinking of trying to stick a 32 weed fin in it and go paddling on it. The board is hard railed with a very flat rocker and the weight is only around 8 kgs. Maybe fine for SUP racing
