    Barn find

    Just saw a brand new complete Mistral Malibu on ebay.

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Mistral-Ma...item3ce6ebd2fb

    Amazing to see a board of this age still in the wrapper.

    What is the oldest new windsurf kit you have seen for sale. I am sure i have seen a fella trying to sell a mistral stinger that has never been used for 600 quid

    I think those mast feet go for a fair few quid, plus the dagger board may fit an equipe?

    And those footstraps are probably more comfortable than the current Tabou standard ones.
    Wish I was better, but don't we all?!

    Strictly speaking it's not a barn find but a garage loft find. The difference is that barn finds are worth money, garage loft finds are not!
