thanks Ivo!
the amount of wind push you get on a wave this size (8-10 ft Hawaiian) is enormous, especially with side shore 25 knots. with a kite you'll never feel it because it's up in the air, but with a windsurfer the apparent wind is up to 40-45 knots in these conditions. mesmerizing...

That is really awesome video !!

Besides the waves, tricks and all ripping, what really caught my eye was the windsurfer which ran to the falling wind board and rescue it from the rocks. To me, this is everything !

Rock on guys..... SO cool 8)
