Right after winning the Red Bull Storm Chase final mission in Cornwall, Thomas Traversa came to the island of Tenerife to test new sails. We managed to score some good conditions around the island, trying some new spots in El Poris (sailing together with Alex Mussolini) and in the north of the island.
Here is the short video where Thomas speaks about winning the competition, his travels in chase of the big waves, and equipment.

Over the winter, I went into hiding for a little while. I had a tough year throughout 2013 and needed for new things to happen. I changed my equipment sponsors and now embark on a total new time with completely new equipment and a new mindset. I spent the winter months on the island of Lanzarote, one of the Canary Islands.
During these months I had lots of time to get everything back in order, and at the same time, I had time to reflect and put together this little clip to shortly tell a bit about how I feel about it all and what my deal is now.
Luckily I had a little bit of help getting a couple of clips together and as I am setting out to proper start my training times, I managed to put it all together to this short episode of my Kiani TV series. It is done completely from the heart. Nobody over my shoulders asking for specific things, just my own stuff.
See you out there in 2014!

I just finished a short clip of some windsurf video material from all kind of places over the world: Hawaii, Canaries, Brazil, Denmark and my home: The Netherlands.
My actual plan was to make a video of one of my trips, but most off the time instead of filming, I ended up my spare time by sailing on the water (how it supposed to be). Besides my boyfriend is a very addicted windsurfing him self too, so it’s a bit of a struggle to have a private camera man… Not that I want it any different, because sharing our passion together on the water is one of the best things there is.
But why not make a short clip of all different kind of filming material together of last year(s)? It’s not that I only train and windsurf on one spot. Windsurfing for me is travelling and exploring windsurfing spots all over the world. For me it is more that just a sport, it is a passion!
With friends, family, people of work/university a lot of the time the subject arise what you do besides working or hobbies? If I tell them I windsurf I hear a lot of the following reactions:
Windsurfing? You mean like kiting? Yeah, kiting seems like fun! Windsurfing? Pretty old fashioned sport eh? Windsurfing? Is that with a sail? And so on…. I guess you heard a lot of them yourself.
Surprised reactions are not uncommon if I tell them you can do it all over the world as long as there is wind (and there better be waves too) and you can also jump and waveride with it. I especially love those faces when it is a cold rainy day in Holland and I tell them I go windsurfing right now. I can really appreciate weather when most people are complaining about it. To show them what I do during windsurfing I put together this little clip with freeride, a little freestyle, jumping and a bit of wave riding. Just to get an impression what windsurfing is for me.
Last but not least, special thanks to all my different kinds of camera man/woman who made this filming material possible! Especially Jan Peter Popta and Carl Calle Nyberg.
Thereby also big thanks to my sponsors: Fanatic, North Sails, ION and Sportzeker!
