Hello,I've been sailing a Melges 16' Scow for a few years and I figured I'd try out windsurfing. I bought a cheapo beater off CL to start out. The lines REALLY need replaced and the sail needs some…Continue

"I've been advised something like a starboard go would be even better for me if anyone has that or something similar."

Looking for a longboard

Hello,I'm taking pretty much everyone on here's advice and looking for a better board. I have what I believe is a short slalom board, I'd like a longboard that is pretty wide or has a decent daggerboard that keeps it nice and stable for a beginner like me. If you have an old board you don't use any more or want to trade for the board I have let me know!-ArrmonSee More

"Naomi, I went out for lessons with Mark just yesterday on  7/2/14. When I first came to him the best I could do was stand on a board and hold the sail still. After a little bit of dry land basics we were on the water, I had sailing the board,…"

"Brian, I've read all over that buying good gear makes all the difference, but I cannot see  putting $1k into something I may not even like. If I get this old board up and running I'll know if I want to go get something new. I…"

"Congrats! As a sit-down sailor you should have an advantage over a complete newbie. The bad news is that windsurfing can be a lifelong addiction. Now comes the shameless plug for ABK - this time for a free…"

"Arrmon, It really helps to have the right gear, and also to get lessons or help from capable friends.  I don't know what gear you bought, but often the stuff on Craig's list is pretty dated and too narrow to learn on.  There are…"

First time out!

Hello,I've been sailing a Melges 16' Scow for a few years and I figured I'd try out windsurfing. I bought a cheapo beater off CL to start out. The lines REALLY need replaced and the sail needs some work, but I took it out for try yesterday anyways. At the end of the evening I could stand on the board without falling over, I can get the sail most of the way up, but honestly I think I sailed 20 feet over the course of 3 hours. There was a lot of falling down and some time was spent sitting on the…See More
