(SOUNDBITE) (English) FRENCH WINDSURFER THOMAS TRAVERSA SAYING: "The special thing is that we have probably the best riders in the world in like the toughest conditions you will be sailing in.

Today we have a really strong wind, the waves are nice, it's not huge, decent waves.

Proper storm, I think there was gusts up to 120kph already." 8.

It's hard but it's fun." 10.

MORE OF WINDSURFERS IN ACTION STORY: Windsurfers took to the sea at Magheraroarty Beach in Ireland on Sunday (March 10) to take part in the latest Red Bull Storm Chase.

Eight of the world's best and most adventurous windsurfers travelled to County Donegal in the Northwest corner of Ireland to take part in the event which challenges them to compete and perform tricks in extremely stormy conditions.

In freezing temperatures riders competed in three rounds of short heats which had them in the water for around 20 minutes, they are judged on jumps, wave riding and their ability to execute tricks.

Wave size reached mast-high while gusty winds hovered between 30 and 60 knots, which is approximately 55-110kph.

The event will be completed on Tuesday, March 12 when even more strong wind and waves are forecast.
