I learned (and still am) on an old narrow long board. I'd do like it a lot and it really can get going quite well. Requires a little more balance, but I would guess that's a good thing in the long run.

Anyone remember the Fanatic Bat...A Great handling big board with a removable dagger. It was fast on a plane but could easily get back up wind if the wind died. I did a lot of learning on that one....A bit like a Kona without the step tail. Kinda wish I still had it to play on....

I use an old mistral superlight and a 10 year old rig. It's great fun but it definitely has a longer learning curve than a modern setup.

I took a lesson this spring with the goal of learning to jibe. I had it nailed on the instructors 90 cm wide board and all carbon rig. But it's proven difficult for me to replicate on mine. The superlight is much less stable and my rig is heavier and harder to balance. But it's fun and free. And I never have to worry about wind. I take the superlight out in winds from 8 mph to 30 mph. It's always a good time.

Sandy Point Windsurf, which advertises here, usually has Exocet long boards for windsurfing and SUP used. Check them out.
