The catamaran used to go hand in hand with surfing. People like Hobie Alter, Woody Brown, and Phil Edwards were all big catamaran sailers. The connection has been lost since then. I bet 95% of surfers don’t know the difference between a mainsail and a jib, a tack and a jibe. Too bad for them. Catamarans really are a lot of fun. And you can pick up a boat like this on Craigslist for less than a surfboard.
