    Background: CALIFORNIA & HAWAII, USA

    A decision on whether or not to include the sport of board sailing in the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles is still under discussion by the International Olympic Committee. The problem delaying the decision concerns the patent rights governing the various boards used in the sport. Board sailing is attracting an increasing number of participants and this film shows some of the graceful and spectacular manoeuvres of which they are capable on Windsurfer Boards.
