Seeing people windsurf through a hurricane is like seeing people fly

You know how most people stay indoors when they hear a hurricane is coming? Yeah, these aren't those people. These crazy guys go out in the ocean and chase the storm with their windsurf boards so that they can fly. Just look at the awesome dude above getting ridiculously big air. It's like he doesn't care that he has to come down and smack himself into the waves. So awesome.

The footage is from Red Bull's Storm Chase 2014. They were doing this in pretty much hurricane conditions as the winds were blowing past 80mph. I can barely function on land with that much wind in my face and these guys are killing it in the ocean off the coast of Cornwall, UK.
