Congratulations Thomas Traversa!

What a day! The final mission of the Red Bull Storm Chase came to the UK, and the UK delivered!

Thomas Traversa takes the win

Today brought another early start for the storm chasers, who reached the Bluff in the dark. The wind was blowing, but it was the lower limit for the storm chase conditions, so it was straight on with the competition.

Starting at 8.30am four more heats were completed today, sailors were on 4.2m sails in the lighter conditions but boosted some of the biggest stalled doubles, pushloop forwards and more that the judges and crowds had ever seen.

Again, all the riders were on fire, but it was Thomas Traversa with his incredible attack on every wave, combined with a smooth style that earned him the mission victory, ahead of Marcilio Browne.

That makes it three wins out of three for the Frenchman, proving he really is the best storm rider in the world. Browne, Jamaer and Bruch all pushed him all the way, producing some truly incredible windsurfing.

Congratulations to all the riders, especially Thomas. Stay tuned to our sister site as they will have a very special podcast coming online very soon…
