Does anyone know where I can get the cassette and a matching daggerboard?

Probably doesn’t matter which board, unless some other requirements exist.
Might be easier to purchase a olde entire board

Right... like they said...
If you're building a custom board, it won't matter which brand, you just want something that works.
But if you're trying to fix an old board, then "what board" is it?
Because there were tons of different centerboard designs and each one has a matching cassette. Mistral alone, probably had 30 different designs between '85 and '95.
Anyway, if you're trying to fix an old board, you probably won't find the right cassette to fit. Like was said, better to buy a good used longboard, that has it's correct centerboard.

In more recent years, many current brands use the same recreational centerboard and cassette, from Allgair (sp?). So if that's what you're looking for... try Progressive Sports in Daytona Beach, FL.
You can probably also get a Kona centerboard system from them.

Other current, more high-end, centerboard systems, like on raceboards from Exocet and Starboard would be very expensive, and hard to get.

Not important. I was hoping to be able to get the whole set up that Starboard or JP puts in their boards. I am not sure that Kona would work. I am thinking of putting it in to an SUP Surftech Universal 12 I already installed a mast track but this board really need a daggerboard to go upwind. I know how to dig the rail pretty deep but the board is like a tanker Smile

HOPING to get parts from Cobra,you say. From my experience on boxes and fins ,very expensive , lengthy to get,need a willing importer to order them for you.

Can you find a custom board company that installs what you want ? And ask to purchase .

My thoughts are if you need to modify this SUP to windsurf to such a degree,its the wrong board, it wasn’t intended to windsurf and go upwind, how much change will you achieve, and how much will be good ?
