Jason Polakow’s search for the perfect wave for windsurfing has just begun.
This time, he travels to Indonesia for a windsurf adventure like no other. Jason’s true passion has always been chasing down some of the biggest waves and best surf conditions and he is the only wave-sailor to break away from full-time competition to challenge nature in its most extreme form. In February 2016 he became the first windsurfer to tackle the giant waves at Praia do Norte, near Nazaré, Portugal, saying: “This isn’t Maui, You don’t come out here for 20 fun waves. You come out and you feel good if you get one or two unbelievable rides.”
Few racing sports are as raw as downhill longboarding. Charging down a steep asphalt road on a piece of wood (sometimes carbon fiber) and two pairs of small wheels, usually without protective leather clothing, is as hardcore as it gets.
Imagine standing on top of a mountain pass in the far South of Slovenia. You are 1000 meters above sea level and in the middle of brown bear country. A thin white line at the bottom of your feet is marking the start line, three riders, with full-face helmets covering their faces, standing next to you. Only two out of four will progress to the next round, but that does not matter now. You try to calm you thoughts and focus on what you are getting into.
