Default RE: Long and Short Board suggestions

Roger,

Thanks for the info about the SUP boards. I would not like one as they are now for windsurfing since they don't have a mast track or daggerboard. I was just thinking that the size of the large SUP would be good for a new windsurfing longboard for me.

I'll think and read some more about the Phantom. I enjoy free style on my free formula in light wind but it doesn't go upwind very well so maybe the Phantom would work better for me on those days.

Julian,
The new SUB boards don't have a mast track, footstraps or daggerboard. They are surfboards that have a spot that a sail can be attached to. So, their use for windsurfing would be pretty limited.

Rod,
Thanks for the additional info about your Kona.

Getting in the Kona foot straps sounds easy enough. On my old Mistral one design the straps were so far back that I almost never got in them for planing with the daggerboard up. And, the board was always tippy for me in light wind.

The Kona does sound like a good board for both light and stronger wind.

I'll keep reading about it and try to find one to demo.
