Just came back from europe, didnt windsurf for 3 weeks....and tomorrow we are having 18-22 wind. I am wondering what gear should i use.
My options are
4.7 Dr.X
4.9 Ezzy Frestyle
6.0 Naish Noa 4

I wieght about 160 pounds. And stand about 6 feet tall...
thanks for your input

Why not just take all 3 and decide when you get there? (although theres probably a big overlap between the 4.7/4.9 so you could forget one of those). If you really believe forcasts, you are in trouble in this sport, always take everything (especially since you just got back from europe)

well thats all personal opinion but if it were me........Id be pretty good with that 6.0 Koa, maybe even a 6.6 (Im bigger than you and probably have worse technique.

The best thing to do is go out there and see what others are sailing.
