He is one of the windsurfing veterans on the PWA World Tour. Lars Petersen, 46, is still fired up.

The Danish has had a fulfilling career. In the past three decades, he participated in more than 50 world cup events, countless national competitions, and tested over 400 windsurf boards.

The road to professional windsurfing has never been never easy, but Lars Petersen is happy with the outcome. That is why he decided to share his "Fire" with us.

"The film goes to portray the burning passion that I have had all my life for my sport. It's been super fun working on the project, focusing on all the details and getting each shot perfect. We have really been putting a lot of time into it!" explains Petersen.

Lars has spent his life riding waves. Today, he is one of the best-known windsurfers in Scandinavia. He has won more wave competitions than any other Danish sailor and, having been around since the beginning, he has even named several of spots, including the most famous windsurfing location in Denmark - "Middles," in Hanstholm.

Despite Denmark's cold weather, Lars Petersen is always extremely active. The wave windsurfing expert balances his sports career with his film and media company, FYM Productions.

The Cold Hawaii specialist will continue pulling the highest maneuvers in the skies of Denmark. Petersen will certainly leave his mark on the future Scandinavian windsurfing generations.
