buddy wants to try windsurfing ...
there is a used Aqua Marine Champion for sale with a 3.0 sail
these boards seem to have come from Amazon ..
guess the largest sail to put would be 5.5 ??

dude probably weighs 60-70 kilos and was thinking his 16 yr old son would be interested too

http://waveschamp.com/aqua-marina-champion-inflatable-paddle-board-review/

270 liters 9'9" x 30" and 6 inch thick rails - pump to 15 psi
that's 292.5 cm x 75 cm and quite thick 6*2.5= 15 cm !!


know there are better boards to start with
these people are weekenders and just want to play on the water ...

I did brief look at the CO. Sales pitch. The call it a monster board , suitable for sup and windsurf . It has a daggeroard .

It’s inflatable , I’m sure it fits a need for some.

3.0 is really small, when I tried to sail a similar size in light wind , it was painful to not go anywhere.

Does it come with the mast and boom ?
For me this would be a PRICE consideration item along with condition .

Looks like an expensive way to learn how boring windsurfing can be.

yeah - my concern is the little sail
and thick thick rails
not everyone can start with the real thing
keep trying to push buddy to lessons
get over first hump
lessons not from me - but from accredited pros - who do this regularily
