Smile Windsurfing - the state of ....?

Hi all

I must admit I haven't been in this forum for about 3 years probably. Maybe not smart to admit here, but I changed to kitesurfing.
Loved windsurfing, but kiting is just more convinient for me where I live (and it is a lot of fun too !!)

Anyway just saw a Starboard commercial and started to wonder how windsurfing is doing on a global scale these days? Here locally there are still windsurfers, but much more kitesurfers. In other parts of the country I think there are still a lot of windsurfers (west coast wave spots).

Does anyone know how is the condition of the patient (windsurfing) ?
Is it only the "older" generation that still windsurf or are the young ones still coming on board etc. For sure around here kitesurfing has "stolen" an immense number of windsurfers.

This thread is not to discuss what's best. I know kitesurfers are wankers that don't know how to windsurf etc etc. I just loved windsurfing (consider buying a high wind board as weel again) and hope the sport is doing okay even though it doesn't seem so around here.
