Well poster #22, it's my understanding that the thread focuses on windsurfing brands that didn't make it over time, at least in their original incarnation. As I see it, Maui Sails is still in business, so one has to view the specific post I responded to as a slight against the brand. You may not want to see MS succeed for one reason or another, but that's a different matter.
Regarding F2, they're seemingly in a tight corner right now, but it's quite possible that the brand could live on. I would certainly hope so, but circumstances must play out over the long haul.
