People Windsurfing In Extreme Hurricane Conditions Looks Absolutely Insane

This Red Bull Storm Chase competition emerges anytime a strong enough storm develops.

Before the storm strikes, competitors and crew, with enough advance warning, flock to the area to hold the hurricane windsurfing contest.

This year 8 riders — four finalists from the last Red Bull Storm Chase, and four riders selected for this year — went head to head against one another and the elements.

Throughout the competition, winds reach up to 62 mph and contestants are judged by height, style, creativity, and wave size. Other factors are also taken into consideration to decide who has proven themselves to be the best storm rider.
