Hercules. Is. Coming.

The biggest and most bad ass storm of the year (heck, since records began, probably) is quickly making its way over to Europe.

Pictures are starting to emerge of the biggest waves we have ever seen, and we think that Hercules is about to produce some of the scariest windsurfing conditions ever seen. Have you got the crazy conditions forecast? Or is your local spot still bathed in calm and sunshine?

As we all know, these conditions are not to be taken lightly. If you’re thinking about heading out windsurfing, think very carefully about where to go and when, and if conditions look vaguely unsafe or out of your comfort zone, then maybe giving it a miss isn’t a bad idea.

Don’t get us wrong, we’re all for going big, but remember mother nature deserves our respect.

Whether you’re out on the water and taking in the swell and storm from the safety of the land, make sure you share you pics and stories right here in the Boards forum.
