Been sailing a 2000 Naish/Mistral 8'6 wave for 14 years, my low/moderate wind go to board. I love the thing. Pretty beat up after maybe 300 sessions.
Browsing ebay late at night I see and can not believe .... An UNUSED "NEw" 2000/ naish mistral 86 wave. Low ball bid and upped 50$ and it's on its way. From Montana of all places. Hope it arrives in one piece. Thinking I might want to change the tiny hull vent screw o-ring.

I have not sailed a "modern" board so don't know what I might be missing, ignorance is bliss.

Cheers JP

So are luck and informed choice. For light/moderate winds or big guys needing the float, that's a great board for B&J or waves. I have it in several sizes, and love them. Size matters, as the 8-7 turns like a school bus in comparison to the 8-5 and smaller. Getting one on the cheap is icing on the cake ... feels like a gift when one considers that I'd rather have my 2000 8-4 N/M than just about any modern board I've seen.

Jerry, there's a 8'5 on Ebay right now !

I have owned the 8'6 and 8'2 since they came out. got a 8'4 a few years ago thinking it would sit just between them. I usually carry the 8'6 and 8'4 to the beach.
