I don't have an exact comparison, but close. I have owned a JP x-cite ride 160 and Fanatic Gecko 133. Both boards worked well on gusty inland lakes, but I favored the Gecko for no clear reason. Per ...

I agree with coachg. I rented the Windsurfer in Clearwater and was fun to sail in the 5-15 mph winds. Very easy to sail and more maneuverable than the Kona. Shaped more like a windsup so would be ...

I have the Starboard Blend Inflatable. I bought it for travel to my in-laws who live on the Florida Gulf coast. I have used it in flat water and waves in both SUP mode and with a sail in light winds ...

I own the Exocet Cross 94 and it works well for me in the conditions you mention. I use it mostly for lake chop/swell and 2-3 foot waves. It is a good "all-arounder". I have used sails 5 ...
