The Red Bull Storm Chase - mission #1 Ireland

I follow the Red Bull Storm Chase missions with fascination. I can’t imagine myself going windsurfing in force 10 and beyond, but these guys do. The heights of their jumps are unbelievable. Everything about it is #insane

3 fat storms above 10 Beaufort, 10 sailors, and the entire planet as a stage. These are the breathtaking ingredients for the most challenging windsurfing contest of all time. To guarantee raging conditions, Red Bull Storm Chase is mobile to the max, with two waiting periods and just 48 hours to mobilize competitors and global contest crew on-site before the storm strikes.

If you haven’t seen the videos yet yet, here are the clips from the two first rounds. They are a must to see:

I must say I am looking forward to the continuation! #insanity
