Friday Flicks: Windsurfing Through Hurricane Conditions - Red Bull Storm Chase Final 2014
Real Athletes. Real Coaches. Real Knowledge.
Welcome to the Friday Flicks! Every Friday we kick off your weekend with a fun, fitness-related video you've never seen before. If you've missed previous weeks, you can catch up on them HERE!
There’s windsurfing, and then there’s windsurfing in the most insane winds you can find. Filmed off the coast of Cornwall, UK, this is the final of the Red Bull Storm Chase. As you will see from the video, this took place in hurricane conditions. But this was no accident. During an eighteen month period, ten of the world's best windsurfers waited patiently to catch three of the biggest storms in the world to determine who was the very best.
For those wondering, Frenchman Thomas Traversa was crowned champion of the storm surfing universe, despite weighing just sixty kilos.
