Windsurfing in a Hurricane

Many of us are windsurfers and there are many on cruisers boats. I thought the members here would get a kick out of this vid in Cornwall, England. Epic is an understatement.

Re: Windsurfing in a Hurricane

I wonder how much equipment they broke in all those waves? Also it just makes me jealous how small of sails those guys can get away with. I'm 220 lbs and need a huge sail and large board to get me going. I havent windsurfed in a few years and miss it greatly. What an adrenaline rush

Re: Windsurfing in a Hurricane

I used to be a pretty good windsurfer. My biggest day was about 25' in Morro bay wayyyyy back. When it's blowing like stink all you need is a hanky and a tongue depressor to get going. I broke more stuff in my day then I can remember.
