I think its because people just leave there stuff behind if the lost posts are anything to go by. I would love a free thread as at this stage its all I could afford. But I do think I could get a new kit just picking up whats left behind at kymeega.

Ok let's try, I have a SDM 45% carbon tushingham 460 mast, not used for 8 years but in good nick, and a couple of SDM extensions, free to a good windsurfers home






Can pick up in Gerringong in weekend or Sydney during week

Free to good home. 70 litre Starboard Acid. Got it given to me, ain't used it, probably never will, so anyone looking for a small wave board in half decent nick, it's yours. Has some repaired dings on the bottom rail, but totally water proof and still nice and light. Pick up only in beautiful South West Rocks, NSW.

I have been teaching heaps of kids down at Sanctuary Point and one of them would love this board. The kids are from non-windsurfing families and some have been awesome in supporting their kids new "habit" but there are also some whose parents weren't really prepared for the expense just yet...

If anyone is coming to the Guy Cribb course down here on the weekend, maybe they could bring it down with them?

I have been helping a young Rob get into windsurfing over the last few months, he is doing well but the old sails I gave him are not!
He needs some small wave/free ride sails. If anyone has some older sails that are not being used and do not want them anymore please let me know.
Thanks Matt

I've got one but I don't know if it's worth giving him.. it's a 90 model 5m revo but it's brittle so wouldn't stand up to any stacks? It also has 2 holes one in the foot and one in the top..It would still be sailable.I was holding onto it for the day I ever manage to get my partner to give windsurfing a go but I don't think that will happen..
Let me know if you want it.

The board at 8 Rawson street has gone and it wasn't council clean up. Landfill avoided.

Ok, so up for grabs is an F2 Maui Project, Style - Large. Believe it is 2002, 101 ltrs 60cm wide by 262cm. It is a great bump and jump board...

Is in Fairlight/Manly but maybe I could leave it at WSnS for ease of collection? Would like to see it in the hands of the Scouts/people getting kids into the water

PS the picture looks like I have a vintage filter on. It is actually a deck grip we put on that went yellow in the sun. Needs a fin and two footstraps but hull is structurally very sound.

Cheers

WOW! 6 minutes and it was claimed.

Josh, 12 year old, is going to have his first board. Sweet.

I have a 2011 SWAT 5.2 in very good condition. Mast 427 boom 168cm. It only takes a skinny mast though. No rips or tears and 100% xply so pretty resilient. I also a 2010 5.0 Blade, mast 427 boom 165 also in very good condition. No rips or tears I think. Both are green so they don't stand out as well as those shiny red ones
I'm in DY, Sydney but can deliver to Hornsby. I'm also headed south to Gerroa on the 22nd of march
Cheers

Gone faster than a dropped $50 in a shopping mall! Hopefully they will be loved in their new home

Could really use that sail as the biggest one I have is a 7.2 too bad you are miles away from wollongong. Good on you though matt.

if you really want that stuff, matt could give it to Larko, his from narrabeen, comes up to sail canton, then larko could give to wind surf n snow, then leo could pick up from shop, and he sails wollongong, so he could give it to someone down there.......

That would be interesting just to see if it would work. What a story that sail would have and I wonder weather the same one that was sent turned up . like a Chinese whisper it may change along the way. Sounds cool why not give it a try.

Well I don't want to piss Huey off but if Saturdays forecast holds then I will be going to Canton and will see Matt and will pick up sail and will drop at WSNS as its 2 minutes from my place. Always like to see gear go to someone who needs it.

I'd be happy to take it from WSNS to the gong if needed.
