Michigan Windsurfing

Windsurfing & Stand-Up Paddleboarding in Michigan

My board fin broke last weekend beyond repair, so I'm looking for new used equipment.  The board was an original Windsurfer, 12 feet long, 26 inches wide, the mast actually dropped into a slot in the middle of the board and was held by friction alone.  Probably 1980's - made in West Germany.  But I'll consider any other equipment.  I'm in northern Michigan, near Traverse City.

I was going to offer you my fin until I saw the board.  Not going to help.  My exact same board split all the way across the bottom and is completely useless.  I loved sailing it on light wind days.  Sorry I can't help.  If anyone has the original windsurfer exactly like the one in these photos and you want to get rid of it I want one.  The new versions that you can buy have a different universal joint.  I need the friction version.

Yeah, I took the fin out and can offer it to someone else with the dagger board. I know there's better and newer boards out there, but this one was like an old glove.

Hello, I have an old BIC setup that I haven't been able to piece together correctly yet. I have purchased a few replacement pieces, but the board and sale are in good used condition. The set is located in Caseville, MI.

Can you post a picture? I don't get over to the thumb much, but if it's in good shape, I might be interested. Thanks

Hi Eric, I won't be back up there until mid-August. When I get up there I'll post some pics. 

Jay, let me know if you get back up to Caseville.  I'll be in Tawas next weekend.  Even if we don't end up making a deal, you are welcome to have my universal joint and daggerboard, if they will fit your equipment.

That's fine. I'm busy for the next two weeks as well.
Recommend going on the iwindsurf site, much larger audience.

My very olde board likewise , the fin broke, after a extended search I made a fin. Works fine
