The windsurf magazine boom took place in the early 1980s when the boardsailing sport became a gigantic success in the European markets, especially in France, Germany, and the Netherlands.
The sailboard would eventually secure an Olympic status, opening the way to the creation of multiple periodical windsurfing publications. Unfortunately, only a few resisted the test of time and internet.

Swiss windsurfer Balz Müller has been chasing winter storms for quite a while, but what you're about to witness is absolutely extreme.
On December 11, Switzerland's Lake Uri was invaded by a dry, warm, and down-slope wind called foehn wind, resulting in powerful 120 km/h (75 mph) winds.
Müller and a small group of local windsurfers decided to give it a go. A decade ago, the 23-year-old sailor watched a video shot in Pointe Rouge, Marseille, and dreamed of riding a similar storm. So, this was his day.
