Antoine Albeau: he forgot to his sail in the car park

On the 7th January, 2014, Belharra saw the world's best big wave surfers riding giant walls of salted water. One windsurfer left his comfort zone and his sail to do the same with a surfboard.

Antoine Albeau is probably the most complete windsurfers of all time. He has collected 20 world tour titles and he is currently the fastest windsurfer on Earth at 52,05 knots (96.34 km/h).

Born on June 17, 1972 in La Rochelle, France, Albeau never misses an opportunity to break his own boundaries. This time, he had to play the big wave game in home waters.

"Tonio" is a sports addict. Windsurfing, surfing, paddle boarding, jet ski, kiteboarding, wakeboarding, he excels in all board sports.

Antoine Albeau is not new in Belharra. He has been testing the French reef break and he was more than prepared to ride it, alongside the world's best big wave surfers.

The shot captured on the 7th January is just a pinnacle of Albeau's long career in water sports. The only doubt is what will be his next goal.

Whether you think of a kite as a wing or a sail, you want it to be lightweight, resistant, waterproof, but also stiff and flexible at the same time, so that they could respond to all flight requests.
