A mate of mine had some of those quite a few years ago.  He was hoping to make his fortune as the importer (they were made in Canada iirc).  When he took one out on the water it always attracted a lot of attention, but no-one else ever actually wanted one.  Now folk are paddling all over the place standing up on a wobbly wind surfer and thinking it's cool (what IS that about?) maybe it's time for him to try again!
