I agree with Taina.

Death threats are not funny.

SAFETY -Inflatables are superior. -Ram airs are not safe for the following reasons: 1-In total wind dropouts or gear failure, ram airs cannot safely get you back to shore.

Is there anything you can do on a wakeboard that you can't do on a TT or a MUT?

I can't see how windsurfing can survive. NO, repeat NO, young people (teens/twenties) are getting into it where I live. They're all getting into kitesurfing. Everything you can do on a windsurfer, you can do on a kiteboard (and more), only in more wind conditions and with greater comfort. The specta...
