Windsurfers like a storm - level 2

Severe weather in England, which is keeping most people indoors, has its fans. They are some of the world’s best windsurfers.

They competed in the final round of the Red Bull Storm Chase, which can only take place in stormy conditions. The ten daredevils battled winds of up to 80 miles an hour (129 kilometres per hour).
