Stomach-churning stunts off the coast of Cornwall, as the severe weather which is keeping most people indoors saw some of the world’s best windsurfers take to the waves.

The final round saw Thomas Traversa of France take the win.
“This is the best windsurfing, like really going crazy in crazy conditions, and I am so happy that I could show what I can do. Winning it. The first one, the second one and then the third one, it’s like. I don’t know. It’s like something happens there for me. And I’m so happy.”
With Brazil’s Marcillio Browne in second place and Dany Bruch from Germany coming third.
