Postby GregK » Thu Jan 14, 2021 12:10 am

Anyone know if the English translation of Bruno Legaignoux's book on the early years of kitesurfing is out yet ?

If the Legaignoux brothers received some money from increased book sales, I'd be up for buying an english, or even French version if no english version was available.

Great way to give them something back for all the work they did without being paid any royalties from Naish, Duotone, and others.

Knowing that kiting is so international sport is nonsence to release such interesting book only in french. It is not understandable.

Wow, I didn't know that Bruno Legaignoux wrote a book.

You can find the book for a good deal at flysurf (5.4 €)
https://www.flysurf.com/ficheproduit-li ... ctid=15063

I'd say to translate it in English, the "easiest" way would be : buy the book, scan all the pages (320), use an OCR software and then translate with google or similar.

I don't know if Bruno speaks English, but I'd love to hear him in a podcast with Adrian for example.

Well, it seems there is an English version of the book !


But I can't find any in stock.
