    Video: Hurricane Windsurfing

    In the third and final episode of Red Bull Storm Chase, Frenchman Thomas Traversa became the champion of the storm surfing community when he won the final leg of the competition after battling through hurricane conditions off the coast of Cornwall, UK.

    Despite only weighing about 130 pounds, Traversa managed to fight against 80 mph winds to beat Marcilio Brown from Brazil and Leon Jamaer from Germany.

    The competition began with 10 of the world’s best windsurfers, challenging them to tackle three of the biggest storms. The first leg of the competition was held in Ireland in January 2013 and the second was held in Tasmania, Australia in August 2013. Four competed in the final leg.
