After a good few years of flying around the globe and hunting down the most insane windsurfing conditions the full Red Bull Storm Chase feature video is finally coming! We’ve already been lucky enough to watch the full movie at its premier in Maui and can tell you it is one NOT to miss.
1. Thomas Traversa – He won the RBSC and now he’s won his first PWA World wave title. Traversa’s attitude and exceptional sailing no doubt makes the movie.
2. Everything is BIG. Big waves, big jumps, big crashes. Who doesn’t love watching that???
3. As you would expect from the project this movie is something special – not only is the action intense but the filming and production is too. It’s fantastic to see some real money and effort put into producing a windsurfing movie.
4. As we all know we were lucky enough to host the final stage of the chase right here in the UK. This means the movie includes some of the best windsurfing action ever captured on film from Cornwall! And even better the movie has been designed for windsurfers and non-windsurfers… meaning you can sit all your friends down to watch and they will be impressed!
5. We think this trailer speaks for itself:
“3 STORMS, 10 SAILORS, 1 CHAMPION. THE ENTIRE PLANET AS A STAGE.
“These were the breathtaking ingredients for the most challenging windsurfing contest the world has ever seen.
“What started as a four month global hunt ended in a two year long journey with Ireland, Tasmania and Cornwall as the final destinations. The criteria were simple: winds greater than force ten and ten world class windsurfers (including four world champions) from eight different countries, in a frenzied and passionate fight against giant waves and storm force gusts.
“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 one of the three missions delivered. So Red Bull Storm Chase proved to be the most challenging windsurfing contest in the history of the sport.
“The result was footage of some of the most extreme windsurfing to ever take place and images never seen before in any windsurfing movie! Get the inside line on how the storms were chased with exclusive behind the scenes footage. Look deep into the souls of the riders, as they face their fears and push the limits of wavesailing time after time.
“Get ready to feel the full force of the ultimate windsurf movie.”
