I'm in Jacksonville, Actually Orange Park. I'm looking for a Windsurfer. Preferably a Windsurfer One Design. Anyone got one hangin' in their garage or boat house? I'd like one in pretty good condition. Maybe you bought it and never used it or never got the hang of it?
I can't be out in my Whaler all the time.

C'mon. I know no one wants to admit it, but someone has to have one hangin' in their garage. Get in touch with me and I promise not to tell a soul.

Out of pure curiosity, why are you looking for a 20+ year old windsurfer? One designs are like Wilson Jimmy Connors or real wwoden woods. Windsurfing has come a long way since the One Design..

Good Lord, don't let anyone hear you talk about 20 year old technology. Not on this website. Are you nuts? there could be a lynching.
There is a huge resurgence of the Windsurfer One Design in Australia.
Look at the Sunfish or Laser sailboats. Still going strong and they are much older than the Windsurfer.
Have you looked at the next sailboard they are going to use in the Olympics. You can't even buy one yourself. Where and when will it end.
I would love to have my old Mistral Superlight back but they were so fragile they are few and far between.
Just wondering, what would you suggest?
Believe me for someone who wants to get back into it, I'm really getting discouraged by whats being marketed now a days.
Why not go "Old School" like all the Whaler guys on this site?

OK, any sailboard. What have you got?

I just came in from lashing a 1981 Laser wind surfer to the car. It's going to the address bellow. Come bid on it.
I never could under stand why any one would what to sail a boat that you keep spilling the ice out of your drink.

My uncle's barn is like a windsurfing museum with all sorts of 80's and even a bit of 70's gear. Some pretty cutting edge stuff in it's day - which was an awful long time ago! However I am located in VT which is a bit far away from florida. Off the top of my head, we have gear from:
Windsurfer (3 boards)
Let me know if you or anyone else might be interested.
