Packery Channel on southerly winds, and Port Aransas on northerly winds, are good places to wave sail.

A while back my eldest son wanted to try windsurfing, but he never got hooked. Now I have all this equipment that I'm saving for my youngest son.

Now, I plan on getting my eldest a wind SUP since ...

Sailed that area back in the mid-90's before the hotel existed. A couple of friends and I sailed 4.5/5.0 for 3 days without anyone in sight. Worth a try, but Arenal is worth checking out.

When my son was 8 (he's now 10), the 2.0 was a good fit. Never seen the Chinook sails in person but we really like the North DriveGrom. The sails are well built and still very light.

Upon initiation, I would throw the rig forward, by extending my front arm but my biggest problem was not pulling in hard enough with my back hand. I thought I was but really wasn't and was my biggest ...

I have square cross bars but added a wind fairing to help with noise and drag. Not sure how much it helps but probably more than the aerodynamic bars.

I live in Texas and recommend Corpus Christi for a trip this time of year. The wind is more consistent than SPI.

Worldwinds in Bird Island is a great shop with good equipment. The spot is shallow ...

I'm the same weight and generally use smaller sails then most. I can easily plane with a 100L board and a 5.7 in 15kts of wind. I could probably get a 5.0 going but it would be a struggle which takes ...

Take a look at 3M 4200. I use 3M 5200 on my boat but its difficult to remove.

Thanks for your inputs.

Largest sail I have is a 5.8 and spend the majority of the time bump & jump and in waves.

Still on the fence; I may try to borrow a carbon boom. Its probably the only ...
