I want to see the camera on the front where the windsurfers are getting bounced off the front of the Zodiac like bowling pins.

1,200 windsurfers on the water at one time is an amazing sight. Alain grew up windsurfing in France and talks wistfully about the Delfi wind event every year he joins us in Nags Head. Seeing the video is impressive.

Closest thing I could find:

Not exactly defi wind, but a lot closer.

" Over 20 kite buggy enthusiasts from as far away as Canada and New Mexico will congregate on the beach in front of Tortuga Jacks this week through Saturday, racing their kite buggies at speeds upward of 50 mph on the packed sand around low tide each day."
