long and short... i grew up windsurfing, was (excuse the possible boast here) well above average ability, last boards/quiver were world tour race/wave level kit... but that was well over 15 years ago and i have'nt sailed since and all my gear is long gone. i am totally out of touch with brands and designs.
got a hankering to buy a board and a few sails off ebay to light/moderate wind blast around on, predominantly coastal flat water with maybe the odd wander into small onshore waves. in old money boards something around 275 with a 6.5 and 5.5'ish sale. cruisey perfdromance rather than full on, but not too soft recreational (got given an f2 axxiss one time and i hated it).
probably looking at kit from around 2008-2010, whats good especially board wise? do not want bic!
