Surfing Sandy

By Kasia Cieplak-Mayr von Baldegg

While Hurricane Sandy wreaked havoc across the northeast U.S., kitesurfers on the Florida coast took advantage of the storm's waves and high winds to shoot this intense video. There are many smart reasons to avoid paddling out during a storm (especially the risk of putting rescue workers in danger), so hopefully this crew played it safe. The video was created by Matthew Blew and Oliver Berlic
