why are there no build-your-own windsurfer instructions out there? Answered

can't you just make a wooden plywood box w/ a fin/daggerboard? is it so easy to do that it should be self-explanatory, or am i over-simplifying it?

You are way over simplifying it.

This link: http://www.ecboards.co.uk/ gives a step by step method of constructing a homebuilt windsurfer that'll match the quality of any production board. It's probably not worth it to try if you'll only ever build 1 board / boat. Most of the production methods require tools and processes that aren't too efficient / cost effective to obtain for just 1 use.

Some of these tools can include a foam cutter, and a vacuum chamber for laminating the composite deck.
