Messy but fun 2-3 footers. Little breeze. Fun. SUP, not SUP sailing, was the answer.

The question is when do you switch up/down from SUP to SUP sailing and from SUP sailing down/up ... well, vice versa?

Still trying to figure out here how much wind and waves is too little — or too much— SUP sail in ...

10 kts is the cutoff for me. Less than 10 - surf or SUP (unless totally flat, then OC1 or kayak, freediving/snorkeling). 10-20, longboard windsurf/SUP sail or "regular sail" (i.e. a sailboat). 15 kts and I'll start to consider "proper windsurfing". Geez I have a lot of toys.

Once it's blowing 16 I can plane with my 6.2 wave sail, and that's what I'm up to.
