Nice Find!! :D

I was working down at the windsurfing rental cage underneath the Olympic pool (as us local kids called the D Summerville pool) in the Beaches in Toronto back in 1985 (!) when Dire Straits rolled through town on their Money for Nothing tour. The owner/manager always threw out free windsurfing gear/rentals/lessons whenever a big act rolled into town and true to form Mark Knopfler and the boys showed up at the beach one day to go windsurfing!

Fun afternoon on the water with them but sadly no free tickets to the show for 13yr old me :roll:

Loved the cameo of the Bic Astro Rock close to the 2:50 mark!
