Windsurfing the Starboard Super 12-6 SUP at Lake Bung Taco in Bangkok Thailand

During my visit to Starboard headquarters Svein thought it would be a good idea for me to try and windsurf.  I was excited but a bit reluctant.  First off, there was no wind.  Second, I have no windsurfing experience.  He asked the resident pro instructor, Duncan to teach me so I decided to give it a shot.  I was surprised that Duncan could even get the Super 12′6″ SUP to move in the sub 5 mph winds.

When I got to try it I actually got up and started to get it moving…well at least in my mind. lol. I ended up in the lily pads a couple times and Duncan had to come and get me out. Here are some pics below.
