You've taken a lesson and got stoked!
Now you're sure
THIS IS IT! -- I'M READY TO GET INTO THIS SPORT FOR REAL.
You're thinking --I gotta get my own stuff, but... just what do I need? And how do I get it? You call me, the Sultan of Stoke! I specialize in "first gear" for beginners. A first board and sail rig must be "right-sized" for your body size, desired style of windsurfing, the water venue in which you will do most of your sailing, etc. I will provide a detailed quote based on your individuality. It takes a LOT of experience to properly advise on windsurf gear, and that I have.
And, oh yeah, you'll need assistance rigging up a new gear the first time. I ALWAYS deliver "first gear" personally. We'll set it up together and go over everything in detail. I'll be there to make sure everything fits together perfectly. Whitecap is a 100% Full Satisfaction Guaranteed dealer. I'll take back anything you are not happy with, even after you've used it a few times. I mean, how else can you know!
Let's consider the 6 components of a complete board and sail rig individually: (1) board ...(2) a sail...(3) a mast...(4) a boom... (5) an extension, and... (6)a mast base/universal joint assembly.
