AWWWW I remember the stoke... salivating seeing those in the mags pictures back then... for us windsurfers it was like aliens had landed. What a rush - and what a privilege to have been in that period of time!

It's a cool video and fun to watch. But what about Bruno Legaignoux? I thought he and his brother were credited with the beginning of the sport as early as the 80's? Or somewhere around that time period... I got about 1/3 to 1/2 way through the video and heard no mention of them.
