Windsurfing the New Starboard 9'8" SUP Fish

The 9’8″ Fish is one really fun board…definitely a keeper…
Did a double standup sesh a few days ago in head high, clean, reef waves…pumping it down the line going faster and faster…floaters, roller coasters,
cutbacks…smooth and easy…

Also, sailed it for a couple of hours in light offshore winds and small surf with a 5.0m2…decided that I liked the back setting for the mastfoot…
still tweaking footstrap placement…may remove the back one altogether when I sail it, I personally don’t feel the need to be hooked in and planing when I ride
this kind of board…but, the fronts enable you to harness a little bit more wind without getting hucked in a gust…and makes it easier to get in/out of the water
with a sail rig…can still manage without them as I’ve done for the last several years, though…

Here’s a shot of our buddy Randy, (225lbs) demoing my board/sail rig after I was done…click image for more pics…
