Born out of a passion for wind and water, Mistral developed the innovative concept of windsurfing to extraordinary heights. Originally founded in 1976 by Peter Brockhaus, with Ernstfried Prade as designer, Mistral set the tone in the development of Windsurfing boards. Technological innovations rapidly followed, including new materials being developed and tested. Mistral turned windsurfing into an international sport and became synonymous with windsurfing. Today, Mistral has a strong focus on Stand Up Paddle Boarding and leads the field in a variety of technological innovations and concepts. More than a SUP company, Mistral has a worldwide network of Licensees and is in every sense a true water sports focused, lifestyle company.
The Mistral Competition introduced in the early 1980s, sold over 260,000 units. In the past 30 years, Mistral has sold over 850,000 boards worldwide.
In 1989 The Mistral one design was produced. It was this board that was chosen to be the official board for windsurfing as an Olympic discipline and even the only board until now that made it as the official board choice for the Olympic discipline in 3 successions; 1996, 2000 and 2004.
