Can a wind surfing board be good for paddle boarding too?

Hey so I want to get into paddle boarding, but they are pretty expensive. So I went on Craigslist and found a wind surfing board and it said to use it for paddle boarding, but I don't know if they are not wide enough for paddle boarding or what. The measurements for the one Im looking at is 12' by 26'' and the other one is 12-2' by 25". Each one is $95 I will just be going to the lake in these. Will it work? Thanks.

    While the windsurfer is not ideal for SUP for $95 it will get your feet wet... don't forget you will need to buy a SUP Paddle too. Bic even makes a SUP/Windsurfer Combo... its called the Jungle.

    Weight isn't the element to evaluate. Does your husband understand the thank you to paddle board? in keeping with probability you should deliver him to a board college or purchase him some classes. do no longer purchase a board and paddle and PFD and knee and elbow pads and a helmet in the previous he learns to paddle.
