“Viking Paradise” is the latest video of Thomas Traversa’s “Guided Tour” series. Together with his friends Jules Denel, Louis Depoers and Sylvain Bourlard he travelled to Iceland in September 2021. And it looks like it was a great trip with radical wave conditions.
In the video Thomas talks about the trip, the difficulties (a 2 km long hike to the spot) and the special moments of this journey. They scored world class conditions on port tack and starboard tack on one day!!
Jules and I traveled to Iceland in 2012 and explored some world class point breaks. I felt on love with the island. It’s one of the least known windsurfing destinations. In 2017 we returned to the Island in the northern Atlantic, discovered some great spots including one with great potential and had some great wave rides, but I thought that the conditions could be way better. Sylvain Bourlard joined us on our second trip. We knew that we have to come back, when a proper swell hits the island. In early September 2021 the forecast showed 2 days of big swell and strong winds… Louis Depoers joined us for a 3 days express trip, too. we were lucky!! The conditions worked out well at the rocky point. Thomas Traversa
