Windsurfing my Downwind Race Board

No walk of shame with 14'6 of waterline!

(Super) Freaking sweet! :) Did it bring back memories of when you first started windsurfing on long boards?

It was interesting!

We laughed about how long each run out and back to the horizon took. Seemed like 15 minutes each way.

During the dog days of summer, it could be the only way to get wet, and almost have fun.

It's so long, it won't tack, and I can't reach the tail to jibe it while still holding the boom. It's hilarious to turn around out there.

That footstrap/handle was a huge help.

what do you use for paint on your boards? Thanks

Spray can paint.
