Hurricane speedwindsurfing

As a part of Prince of Speed 2020 La Palme - Occitanie, Andy Laufer had the opportunity, to do a few runs with the 2 fastest windsurfers in the world - Antoine Albeau / France and Vincent Valkenaers / Belgium. Tried some new cam angles with my brandnew Hero9Black.
Also tried to go as close as possible to my teammates, wich is not always easy in those conditions.
Winds between 30 and 70! knots wich was insane!
At lunch time nature told us to have a break, it was not even possible to start.
If you crash or wipeout in those winds, your gear is gone.
After about 3 hours we hit the water again and had great fun Speed Windsurfing again.
Unfortunately we could't start the WordSpeedTour as it was too risky for the rescue boat.
Our speeds were around 90 - 94 km/h Topspeeds.
Not the fastest day but a day to remember, soo beautiful!
