For new windsurfers: how much wind is "too much"?Event
Short answer - 20mph. I have over 30 years experience, starting with an original windsurfer and teak booms. I think that wind speeds between 5 and 10 mph work well for beginners. The real key is STEADY wind. You can almost always sail around and learn the basics with a 6.0 tuned for that wind range if you're an average size guy. At 5 - 10 mph, you'll be sailing, at 15 you may start going pretty fast and sneak up onto a plane with an early planing board, which will either be a lot of fun, or scare you silly.
