STORMCHASER from Surfjunky on Vimeo.

Aloha! For more then 2 decades I have been storm chasing. Finding my moments of innerpeace in absolute chaos within hurricane weatherconditions. The bigger the storm, the more i love it! It will set your minds free. In that moment, it will make you forget all the problems/stress you may have in life. Just you being one with nature in its most extreme way. Out of control or being in control. Its just all a matter of seconds. Surviving and making the right decision on that right moment. Sometime nature decides for you and you just have to accept where it leads to. Crashing hard, broken equipment, or even worse. This footage is from the last several storm chases i have been in, including the biggest storm from 2015, 31th of March! On that particular day i was the only windsurfer out there. 2 photographers were standing along the beachbreak making pictures from this session, but also standby to call the rescuebrigade, if something bad would happen. About the vid; i tried to combine my high(est) jumps with loops, tabletops, crashes @Hurricane Forces. The actioncam/GoPro makes the waves look smaller though, but for sure it was big! You have to trust me on that one. haha Homespot: IJmuiden & Wijk aan zee - Netherlands. What can i say! I love windsurfing! Feel Free to SHARE THE (VID) STOKE! & I hope you will enjoy the Rush!
