Great film. I learned to windsurf not too far from there (Val André). Now I sail in Los Angeles...

There seems to be more youngsters involved in windsurfing (and sailing in general) in the coastal regions of France than in the coastal regions of the US.

Thanks for sharing.

oh Bonjour !!!!


France has always be a big windsurfing country. The new generation is coming it sounds good for the futur of windsurfing !

I personnaly try to push people to make little films of their sessions. I belive that the more we "sea" and hear about windsurfing the greater the number of windsurfers will be. All the learning structures and accademy (FFV) are already well equiped but in my opinion de French federation and I guess in other country too everything is based in promoting windsurf and sports in general throught the prism of competition that is good to raise up futur champions but I'm conviced will held out of the sport normal people just looking for a little bit of Fun. I sur small fun films and small local events have a greater power to attrack new commers.

I've also decide to organise a small local video contest that have just started :
