This is spastic good .
Not one Wally , raceboard , blow up , learner , formula , wave , speed , 3 in 1 , sup or foil .
This is dedication to pure planing .
The reason we all got hooked .

I don't want to be too picky, but hundreds of thousands of people got hooked on windsurfing long before there was any dedication to pure planing.

What does the Missus have- Imelda Marcos' shoe collection, teaspoons, antiques???

What does the garage look like?

Get a longboard- just one.

Only if you can get a good one. I find one key is to make sure that she has better gear than you do. Her Wally, Mistral and Laser dinghy are newer than mine; her aero road bike and her CX bike are both one level up from mine. Her other boat (Formula 18 racing cat) is more expensive than my other racing boat.

The other key is to make sure that she has another hobby that allows you to behave like a martyr. My wife is into dogs, and as long as I pretend that I only put up with them for her sake I get lots of brownie points, which translate into lots of goodies for me.

So true
im just going on that first pic ,

any sailing is better than digging stump holes .
Im in .
I'm into all sorts , even got a spastic RB. And that's as left of centre as u can get.
Even more than formula and a 70 fin .
funny thing , kinda floats my boat

We omitted a few actually. Wally Mistral EQ2 obviously wouldn't fit on the lawn, wave boards and some old slalom boards. About 6 at last count back.

Pretty much like this. 2 on the ground. Sometimes there's a couple of rigged sails ready to go, simmer after work sessions.

A shed thread will have to have a password lest our spouses log in and see. Danger!!

I'm way past that. My shed has become overrun with daughter + spouses saddlery gear. Clearly poor strategic planning by me

You just need to show her how 'funny' and 'cool' Seabreeze is, i.e.: talk her through the Locosys vs Garmin thread and within 1 minute flat, she'll leave you and the computer alone forever more! Nothing to see here.

I've got close to that, 11 boards excluding windsups & a few others im selling.

As for the rest of gear... i think 16 sails, around 8 masts, bout the same in carbon booms, foil, fins those I don't want to think about 60?...80???

You can waste $$$ on woman or windsurfing, I don't miss woman

Sad thing is I havn't had much time to use any of it lately.

Then you must need another board to fill a gap so that you can get out.
