I don't know how much time it'll take for me to learn how to kite on the water, but I'm proficient on land on an ATB. I just need a lightwind board for this summer, and I'd prefer it if the board also functioned well as a beginner board. I'm a college student, so my budget is limited. An old board in good condition will work, as long as it meets the criteria above and is durable enough to last a while. I don't care about the year or make, because I'd love to get a Spleene Door, but realistically, the funds just aren't there. I'd prefer a wake style board to a surf style board. While I'm at it, a used wetsuit would also probably be useful. I'm 6'3 and 185lbs. I don't know about sizing, but, for a college kid eating a microwaved can of beans for dinner, your closets are full of buried treasure.
I'd love to see what some of you have lying around and collecting dust.
I'm the guy in the obnoxious board shorts, always. Twitter: @chi_surfer
