That's just '90's stuff, not nearly old enough for museum and new enough to blow past 99% of the windsurfer's on the water today.

Some of these are familiar.. scary

What is really scary is the advert says 11 boards,
only 10 are in the photo,, the missing one may be worth a small fortune.

Suddenly i the middle of a sleepless night it came to me!!!!
I couldn't understand how such a cache came to be.

Look again at the picture.

These boards were all ditched by the Lost Boys (and Girls) who turned away from windsurfing at that historical moment.

Seriously....I see shades of Trip Foreman in the F2s

The boards were fine (mildly tempting), but the rigs would tell the story....everything went light and carbon right after that, and the Lost Boys missed it.....they kept trying to push those things with the wrong motor and went schlogging....now they get pulled around

What I would like to do is get the fins and booms from the lot...make tepees from the masts and sails, and make the boards into kid-sups

With half those boards, anyone who can windsurf would blow doors off 90% of the windsurfing population today with today's gear.
The JP and the HiFly weigh as little as the newest freeride boards. The HiFly as quick and responsive as anything made today.

nice observation outcast.. i really wanted that comet slalom when i was still on it;s bigger brother, but took the bigger jump to an astro rock, surprised none of that field of bics here. i will second mr. lee on that hifly assessment, it is more recent than the other stuff and i might go buy it(again).
