Would your face look like this at 50 knots?
You make a LOT of weird faces, but that’s not the thing that makes this little video worth a watch.
Hands Kreise is a speed windsurfer from the Netherlands. He’s on a mission to break 100km right now, and dreams of smashing a world record in the famous speed channel at Luderitz, Namibia. Currently, he’s pretty close, with a few runs recorded by GPS at over 50 knots (which is 92kmph) and on this particular occasion, he took his GoPro along for the ride with him as he barrelled down the sandbar on a gloomy, overcast day.
However, his smile at the end of the run is enough to brighten anyone’s mood – no matter the weather. If you’ve ever been holding on for grim death, hoping that you’re going like the number you see on your GPS at the end of a run – then you know the feeling.
