Dokumentace/Documentation: Thanks to Dimitris Savidis (Hitthewave blog) , COBRA Intl. and Old School Windsurfers group members.

COBRA. The King Cobra board was ‚the winner of tests in 1982‘  Designed by Klaus Simmer, produced by Windglider Thailand. Rounded PINtail was used for the first time on series production board. ‚The most copied sailboard in the world‘ was the catchphrase used in advertising.
Hundreds of fake COBRAs (pic) flooded also our lakes in early 80’s.

COBRA. První sériové prkno s PIN-TAILem. V reklamě už v roce 1983 psali, že jde o „nejvíce kopírované prkno na světě“. První COBRU k nám dovezl zřejmě pan König, brzy poté se kopie prkna COBRA objevila v nabídce Lověny.
