SUP or Rio Longtail to Start

Not sure about the go a few of the guys learning with me haven’t had a very good run on the go.
The only problem from my experience, with starting with the SUP is that it isn’t really a windsurfer and may not plane. Foot straps are never in the right place. In saying that I started I did start with Mistral Pacifico 12′ and still sail it in very low wind conditions.  But I needed a board designed for windsurfing to learn how to windsurf properly – if you are able to afford to purchase a Rio Longtail new or second hand go for it – they seem to hold their value well.
