Mind-blowing guys! Did you get a ferry back home afterwards though, as surely you couldn't have sailed back upwind! :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Isn't the TI great the way you can completely fill the front cockpit and it doesn't pitch pole
but just drains and keeps going. :P
Great video.

Serious question following my earlier comment. What did you do once you reached your destination? I cannot believe you were able to sail back upwind in those conditions.

Obviously, with this type of wind and sea conditions we will cruise only in one direction. The day before we left the vehicles at the destination and make a long journey with great downwind. Greetings!

I’m thinking of visiting my Hobie mates in Hawaii by using the same method.

Thanks! I feel much better knowing you didn't try and sail back.

That is freaking awesome, although it looks cold! Video's like these are what is pushing me toward the TI. It seems like such a versatile vessel. Great job guys!
