Re: simplicity versus high tech/latest gadgets
- It is because the sport is so new I think. If you look at windsurfing
it is amazing how the windranges of all of the equipment gets bigger
and bigger and the more simple and functional everything gets.
That should be the future of the sport for real growth, safety,
simplicity and less gear required (Lower cost). But this is a group
that is visited by many gear heads and I think there is also a very
different side to the market.
