Great, I was just about to throw out a 12 ft behemoth that was our first board that no one has rode in years. The kids call it the Aircraft Carrier.

I love sailing my 20 year old longboard. Interestingly, even though my Go Board was marketed as a versatile, beginner-friendly board, the old F2 is much more reliable. I did an extensive comparison of the F2 with a Kona board at my blog. Longboards really are fun to sail.


I am interested in some cheap gear, never owned anything, always rented. Also a rack for my car....
Any tips on where to sail near Eastport, I'll be there for the summer?

Daisy, you should definately go to the swap meet. You may want to call Jonathan Ford at Windsurfing Hamptons in advance (631-283-9463) as he can discuss your needs and may be able to line up some used equipment for you in advance.
As far as sailing near Eastport, take a look at the Long Island Windsurfing Map which is a compilation of locations used by locals. Harts Cove is one launch nearby, though there may well be other launches on Moriches Bay. This would also be good to discuss with Jon Ford.

    "It's good to have a shredmobile" my friend Caldwell said, so I made one. It's a Ford E150 cargo van done up with lumber and k-mart plastic boxes.
