Now it's official... I'm 33...
I'd like to thank all of you for your gifts, sms, e-mail and your support to achieve this difficult step of my life. And a special thanks to Eole who decided to blow the day that I was impossible to sail(It's difficult to find any good excuse when you have organized the bbq for your birthday isn't it?), the guy who gave me some tools to build HIS swimming pool and last but not least the rain who decided to clean my car at the end of the day. Once again THANK YOU ALL.
For the next and as Yannou's brother said, I am going to try not to meet too much Roman. It seems that it can be dangerous...
Hope to see you soon...

Enfin.... Je n'y croyais plus... Je pensais que ce brave Eole était mort... Après plus d'un mois j'ai de nouveau pu discuter avec mon pote Eole. J'en arrive parfois a me demander si il est raisonnable de vouloir faire du windsurf quand on habite en Helvétie... Bref j'ai pu naviguer, j'ai pu essayer ma nouvelle bâche heu non voile de 8.8 m2... c'est cool ! Même si mon dos n'est pas tout a fait de mon avis... Par contre mon humeur s'en trouve changée... Je suis juste heureux.... c'est grave docteur?

Mon ancêtre est ne en décembre 1979 dans le cerveau d'un ingénieur de la baie de San Francisco je suis terriblement lié au théorie d'Isaac Newton. L'idée de ma conception était avant tout d'être facile à utiliser et financièrement accessible (moins de 500$). C'est en 1984 que mon premier ancêtre fut commercialisé. Révolutionnaire pour l'époque je me fais rapidement ma place dur le marché. Même William G. me trouve une certaine originalité. En perte de vitesse, je touche le fond au début des années 90. Je trouverai mon salut au travers de design innovant et surtout de mon lecteur de musique portable dans les années 2000. Je reste cependant toujours facile d'accès et convivial, je suis, je suis….
