You can have one board, one type of sail...

You can have one board, one type of sail, all sizes but just one model, and can only sail at one specific location for the rest of your windsurfing life. What kit and where:

This place looks alright to me. Rolling swell with flat water in between for some blasting, gybing and small jumping.
It looks like a nice sandy beach to get washed up on if you break something, no strong tidal currents either.

I dont think my body could cope with proper waves and big jumps for long sessions these days.

It says gusting to 20 knots, sea breeze, so guess Exocet Cross 94 with Ezzy Tiger/Cheetah 6m and below, or 104l & Ezzy Cheetah 6m - 7m depending on the usual wind strength. The Ezzy Cheetah starts at 5.5m, so maybe that would be small enough for that place.

The nearest I get to this locally is K-Bay when its onshore or Studland Bay, low tide and easterly wind that has been blowing for a while. Maybe Overcombe at low tide in a southerly. The water is never as nice as this though.

Gwithian with a float boat and light wave sails.
That’s my retirement plan anyway. :D

Jeri with a 92 liters freestyle board and a 4.8 freestyle sail would be nice, but the best would be a nice side sideoff wavespot with a powerfull 3/4 mast high wave and winds for a perfect 4.7 wave sail and a 78 liters board set up.

Anybody been to Baja?

Big Bay Cape town with a RRD Wavecult 90 and KA Killer 3.7,4.2 and 4.7 sails. Straight into after session treatment against the corona virus with a few Corona's at one of the pubs watching the pros in the sunset . just love it....

pffff one spot! that is a hard one.
I guess one of the most fun places I sailed was Kilcummin-Brandon Bay.
I like a bit variety in my sailing and you can sail that spot on both tacks incl onshore in everything from big toe high to double mast and still having fun.
Gear: a Witchcraft V4 flextail and a quiver of Ezzy Taka sails 5.3-4.7-4.1-3.8 or Hot KS3 sails.

My quiver of ‘20 Neil Pryde Combats, all the way from the prototype 3.0 to 4.7 - they work so great in everything, pretty much. 69l JP ultimate wave custom. Accompanying mast, boom, ext and k4 fins.

The spot would either be Crossapol in tiree for how playful a skatepark it is, or Scarborough in Cape Town because it’s such a perfect hollow wave.

As Ru says probably Crossapol but for the purposes of this discussion I reckon Tiree counts as one location being as it's only 15 min drive between beaches! Moo custom 66L and a set of Ezzy Takas: 4.7, 4.1, 3.4 and perhaps an Elite 3m for the odd storm.

(wish I was self isolated there at the moment!)

They’ve had a couple of corona cases there bill... :shock:

I think I prefer pumping Cabezo to pumping Crossapol but Crossapol has so much more variety and it’s almost always sailable.
