can anyone help??
i am interested in getting a second hand board and am especially
interested in the F2 SPUTNIK design. If anyone could answer any of the
questions then that would be a great help. But first a bit of
information on the area around me.
i have only windsurfed on lakes and at the moment only intend to do that
although i am planning to go to the sea sometime this year. i can use a
harness and am attempting to use the footstraps whenever possible. The
wind strength is not great and so when i go windsurfing it is only light
to medium winds of around force 1-5. i am actually hoping to go out in
some of the stronger winds when i am a more accomplished sailor. i have
a range of sail from a 4.5, 5.5, 6.0, and a 6.5. this is going to be
my first short board and have only sailed on relatively big boards. i
am around 57kg and am only 13 so still have a big of growing to go. i
can only afford a second-hand board as i am buying it myself and have
decided to go for a price range of FREE - 300 (i think that's about
My Dad has recommended a board of about 120l personally i think this
would be a bit big. I would like to get a board of around 270-295 but
am not sure if i could use a 270. Using what i have said would this
choice be good of bad?.
i would like to thank you in advance
