If you want to be that "multi-sport" guy or gal who gets on the water no matter whether there is wind or not... then why not try a windsurf-able Standup Paddleboard (SUP).

 

These boards are generally longer and slightly narrower than typical beginner windsurfers, so a little more balance may be required. But HEY... if you can paddle it than you'll find that holding a sail is actually easier!
