I won't have a $1000 or more in to the board.

A THOUSAND DOLLARS? Very Happy

You should be able to find a board with your criteria for well under $500 including shipping. NEW ones can be had for a grand, including shipping, off dealers' shelves.

How far are you from "Lon GIsland", where this Kombat is for sale @ $300?

Ugh, I think he means a total of 1K including the foil and mods?

for foiling it seems 130+ liters and NOT too narrow
ifoil is WAY too expensive and NOT really readily available
would love to see results of the "experiment(s)"

That's what I thought, too, until he began talking about the $6,000 (plus shipping) iFoil, which doesn't even offer early planing. From its test, "If there is enough wind to plane without pumping on a 120-litre freeride board, then there should be enough to get this foiling."

They'd look great on all your body armor. Especially if the flashed. ;*)

I already have LED blinkers for night sailing. I was thinking of sufficient candlepower for illumination for night sailing. Don't need it in moderate conditions, but big swell needs to be seen.

OP

Life is a bitch when you can't snap your fingers and get what you want.
Are you a millennial?

Rarely do I find the sail or board I want used , at the price I desire.
FWIW , using freight to ship will be very reasonable even a large board.
From Denver to Florida was $125, using PILOT FREIGHT.

I know what the OP is talking about because Number-Nine and I have had this discussion...
Any old beater board should work, but yeah 110l plus and wider

So $ should be minimal...under the porch type board
