Guess this was happening nearly exactly last year, four riders windsurfing in hurricane conditions off the coat of Cornwall, the U.K. Four heroes, Thomas Traversa, Marcilio Browne, Leon Jamaer and our local guy Dani Bruch.
With building high waves and gusts of wind reaching 70 knots, only the best were nominated to participate in the “Red Bull Storm Chase”. During an 18 month holding period, ten of the world’s best windsurfers waited patientñy to catch three of biggest storms on oceans around the globe… After Mission 1 in Ireland (January 2013) and a second mission in Tasmania (August 2013), Red Bull Storm Chase picked the storm ravaged coast of Cornwall for the third and final location for a showdown between the remaining four.
Thomas Traversa proved to be the undisputed, ultimate strom windsurfer, winning the final after an extreme thrilling third mission, Marcilio Browne secured second, with Leon Jamaer in third place and Dani Bruch in fourth position.
2014 has been simply a great adventure, knowing it’s a cliché, we´ve met a lot of awesome people doing awesome things, one of the most extreme was watching these windsurfers playing it up like hell. Come on, we want more!!
(Hoping Dani Bruch will be at the head of PWA (Professional Windsurfers Association) Tenerife 2015, last year was great!!)
