Smile What board will keep 300 lb sailor afloat?

I am over 300 lb. Just wondering what board will hold me to sail in light winds?

Hi Bear,

First what you would like to do :

- Learn windsurf?

More easy to answer you if you give us a direction, thanks

All the best

Support the message above. I am about 260lb, sail the Mahalo almost exclusively the last couple of years.
It took me a couple of years to realize that what may hold for “normal” sailors, do not apply for me. The wide beginner’s boards do well the first week. Planing a Start-board in footstraps is advanced technique even for people below 200lb.
The Mahalo can also be used as tandem, works well with almost 500lb.
