I completed the lesson this past weekend and had a blast! Now I'm on the hunt for some used gear. I am 5'8" about 150 lbs and have been told that I should start with a 150-200 liter board and 5.0-6.0 sail. I live in Port St. Joe, FL. If anyone has any gear that they would like to sell or know where to look please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank You!
