Do I really need to loosen on hot days if the board is in the Sun either on a car or beach? Never want to forget to close it, and would prefer never touching. At what temperature may it be a concern ...

Thanks for all your responses. I went to windward boardshop after finding out they do have some suits after getting out of the windsurfing biz and tried on an O'Neill 4/3 heat. Fit great, 10 x more f ...

Need a new suit. Been using an old scuba short arm 2 or 3 mm. I hear windsurfing specific suits will be a dream compared. Probably wont go out in air colder than 60 F, but water could still be in ...

PostForum: Windsurfing Discussion   Posted: Mon Jun 18, 2012 6:11 pm   Subject: Fin Screw Length
How do I determine the correct length to order for any given board? Should it stick out of the powerbox an exact amount? I assume it's the board size/make and not the fin size that matters. Thanks ...

I am used to 64 cm wide board 272 long, 118 liters. If you had to guess, how much more stable would a modern freeride board of the same 118 liters "feel" that was 72 cm wide for uphauling a ...

Narrowed it down to 3 choices. Looking at 2012 models. Starboard Carve 131, JP X-cite 134 or JP Funride 130. I have 3 sails, Sailworks Retro 5.5 and 6.5 and a Gaastra GTX 7.5 with cams. I have a 4 ...

I appreciate the encouragement about being 50, but I know my physical limitations as a windsurfer. 300+ miles of fetch and 3 days worth of 30 knot N.E. winds is for expert wave sailers. Not me. The ...

It's a fairly heavily used site in the Summer. I am one of the safest guys out there. One of the few who uses a helmet on the (flatter) S. W. winds. The S.W. winds are offshore, very gusty and wort ...
