It boggles the mind that the iWindSurf classifieds are still a 1980's web site while there is a reasonably functional iKiteSurf classified. C'mon guys, all you have to do is make a copy of the iKiteSurf one for windsurfing and search and replace.
If anyone has a better place than CraigsList and the mish-mash of Facebook for sale please suggest.

Yes, please fix the classifieds. Wearables should have a size so we don't need to open an ad to find out the item couldn't possibly fit. Ads in all categories that have expired should be deleted.

Do you need help to monitor the classifieds? I could be one of several volunteers willing to contact sellers to verify whether an old ad should still be active....willing to do that if iWindsurf will then delete the ones that should be removed.

Here. Here.. !!
There's ads for items still on site that I purchased 2 years ago.. ???
Half the ads I contact are over 18 months old, I finally gave up, the items are always sold or you don't get any response.

Nothing improved at all since '90s. It still says the word new everywhere from 1997. But hey so do I.

Absolutely NOT!!! why would a company spend money on something free? They would probably end up doing a bad job anyway.
There are 2 other websites that performs the job better, one of them a bit more specialized to the US market: https://www.surferslist.com/
Stop complaining, it is useless.

I wish iWindsurf would close its buy sell section, it is a waste of time.
Apparently no email replies reaches the advertiser.

Here here. Would it be too hard to give the postings an expiration date? Wading through year's old posting is annoying.
