That is a heavy looking wave - like mast high shore dump. I guess it breaks on fresh lava rock. And its windy. Danny doesn't seem to hold back.

Never heard of flight sails - is it a sister company to Bruch boards?

There are a couple of videos of Dany windsurfing there on Youtube.

I watched a surfing and bodyboarding contest there once. The wave breaks close to the very big, very flat slab of rock that makes the point. The surfers could make the drop and ride the wave in along the edge of the slab.

I don't think my feet are durable enough for that spot!
