Thanks! That seems like good advice. I don't think my wife will let me get sucked into continuously buying new gear, so I am trying get a lot of bang for my buck in the first go around. The problem I have is I do not know if any windsurf shops in my part of the world (New Orleans).
I am looking to get into windsurfing. I am a very experienced dinghy sailor (Lasers, Sunfish, past college sailor...) but don't have any real windsurfing experience. What should I look for in a board and sail? I am 180lbs and reasonably fit. I am thinking of buying something used and cheep until I am convinced this is something I will keep doing. I don't know of any windsurfers in New Orleans, so this will probably be watch some videos and learn as I go kind of deal. Any advise would be welcome.
