Igor Yudakov is a Russian wave windsurfer from the Black Sea. He lives in the harbour city of Novorossiysk (region of Krasnodar). This time he challenges a big winter storm elements in Bolshoy Utrish in the Anapa region, Russia and rigs his 3.7m sail. The spot is 30 minutes drive from Anapa and sixty kilometers from his hometown Novorossiysk. Together with his wife Maria Nelasova he produced a wild video, called “RUSSIAN COLD WINTER”. 

“My latest movie is about winter windsurfing in Russia on the Black Sea. A big storm hit the coast at Bolshoy Utrish in the Anapa region. I show all my emotions in my new film and I used new special effects in editing. The film is quite atmospheric, so please add brightness on the screen and volume. I have lost my GoPro camera shooting this film at the sea. Then I used a new GoPro Hero 5 of my friend and almost lost it due to a broken mount when I badly landed one of the jumps. Thanks to Masha for the shooting from the beach.” (Igor Yudakov)
