Martin, I've seen you windsurfing and the sort of wind speeds you venture out in, Wow!

Don't think I'll need a 4.2 anytime soon.

The 141 and 151 Carve and Go are 15cm wider than the boards I have now, will the additional width make much difference?

Maybe I'll take a deep breath and get a 5.5m and 7.5m sail.

Graham Definitely got to get a new board, the sailing barge is going to do for my spine. I've looked for months at second hand boards (Ebay, Tradeit, ..etc) they are either a bit advanced for me or have some problem. I'll be sticking with windsurfing for the next few years so something new for a cha...

Help choosing some new toys.

Birthday approaching (25 again, ho, ho). So I thought I would treat myself to one of Windy Worlds package deals. Currently have 2 boards and 1 decent sail. Board1: Best describded as a Sailing barge, nearly 4m long and 66cm wide, buoyant enough to support a family of 4, best of all it was free. This...

Daymer, wow, what a nice location. Travelled down Friday evening as my teenage sons don't do early start, stayed at Trewiston farm. Saturday morning went to Daymer met lots of Nomads, it was a bit to advanced for me (quite a leap from Croft Farm duck pond). I did have a go at wobbling about on the b...

All a bit new

Aquired a windsurfer.
Joined a club.
Even went to the pub to meet them.
Must be having a mid life crisis.
