Thomas Traversa - Cow Island (Brittany)

Thomas Traversa takes on the big waves on the Breton Atlantic coast. He's one of the best big wave sailors in the world (past Red Bull Storm Chase winner - look up those videos). He's only a wisp at 65kg but sails like a machine. Film by Jamie Hancock

Continent Seven:

This winter I took a day trip on a promising forecast to the spot, Ile Aux Vaches (Cow Island) in France. We had been there the previous winter for The Windsurf Project, this time it was just me and a one day trip. Thomas has the place totally dialled and is always a joy to film as he tears apart 20ft+ waves.

We left in the evening to take the Euro Tunnel, picked up JC in Calais, drove through the night without any sleep to Brittany and arrived with Thomas rigging. I then shot from the land, flew the drone for a few waves in between the rain squalls and then finished off the day on the back of Pierre's ski. A couple of voiceover recordings later and we were off to the ferry, exhausted.
