Pat and Mat: they don't need water to go windsurfing

Windsurf is where you find it. And sometimes the only thing you need is wind. Just ask "Pat & Mat," the two plasticine characters from Central Europe who gave windsurfing a new purpose.

"Pat & Mat" was a popular stop-motion animated series that debuted in Czechoslovakia in 1976. The two handymen quickly conquered the European spectators with their clumsy, yet funny behavior and the show spread across the world.

Each episode created by Lubomír Benes and Vladimir Jiránek involved challenges that Pat and Mat tried to overcome with several tools and innovative methods.

In 1990, after the fall of communism in several European nations, Benes founded the AIF Studio in Prague and Zurich and developed 14 more episodes. The last one - "Windsurfing" - is a funny one.

The duo decides to give windsurfing a go. After getting the equipment in the car, Pat and Mat travel to the nearest lake. However, when they arrive, they don't find water.

That's when they embark on a series of works to try and channel water from a well to the lake. Will they truly get into windsurfing? You be the judge.

Whether you think of a kite as a wing or a sail, you want it to be lightweight, resistant, waterproof, but also stiff and flexible at the same time, so that they could respond to all flight requests.
