Billion dollar company Aida acquires Mistral and invests heavily to transform Mistral into a windsurfing giant. The Mistral Dream Team is created as a marketing stroke of genius and includes the likes of Robbie Naish, Karl Messmer, Peter Cabrinha, Jill Boyer, Natalie Siebel, Natalie Lelievre, Tim Aagesan and Tomas Persson. They went on to dominate the World Cup Circuit. Theodor ‘Teddy’ Keifer would be their manager.
