Chasing the Wind: Inspirational Windsurfing Video

You might have heard of ALS, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, from their Ice Bucket Challenge a couple of years ago which raised awareness (and a ton of money) for research towards the disease, which has no cure.

This week, Danish producer and professional Windsurfer Jesper Vesterstroem released a video to highlight the struggle family members have, watching their parents, children or relations succumb to the disease. His escape was windsurfing, and it lead him to become a world champion and lead the life of a pro, a lot of it over here in Australia a few years ago when the Formula scene was bigger.

Vimeo have chosen it as one of their Staff Picks this week, so you know it's good. Check it out below for some great production value and a little inspiration to get out on the water every chance you get.
