Hey Ross,

Awesome and Generous post. I'd love to be the new owner of your vintage windsurfer, if it's still available. I'm getting my feet wet after along time away from the water and this is what I learned on oh so many years ago.

Please let me know if its still available.

Hello Michele

I'm sorry for not getting back to you.  I gave the equipment to a young guy (around 20 yrs old) who was very excited about learning to sail.  Hopefully, he spent last summer tooling around on Lake Lansing.  I've since moved from that area to Marshall MI where I'm scouting out nearby lakes.  So I can't give you a windsurfer, but isn't it nice to see someone under 40 taking interest in the sport!
