Video - Red Bull Storm Chase: Mission 3 to Cornwall

The Red Bull Storm Chase has delivered a new era of windsurfing performance. Previously, nobody thought it was possible to even sail in the strength of storm-force winds that each mission delivered. But after seeing just how radical the world’s best sailors are, how high they could jump – and the quality and style of the waveriding on display, a new standard has been set.

For the final mission, England’s West Country supplied near Hurricane-force wind and 10-metre waves that fully tested the remaining 3 windsurfers: Marcilio Browne, Leon Jamaer, Thomas Traversa and Daniel Bruch. Five rounds were run over February 8th and 9th at two locations in St. Ives Bay: Gwithian and The Bluff. After some grueling battles, Frenchman Thomas Traversa was crowned as the ultimate storm windsurfer and Red Bull Storm Chase champion. More coming soon but for now, just enjoy the video!
