In the clouds
Windsurfing legend Jason Polakow scores some of the fiercest waves of his life as he takes on the mighty Cloud Break in Fiji.
Jason Polakow (JP / NeilPryde) is one of the world’s most iconic windsurfers, famed for slaying enormous waves and risking everything for that ultimate adrenaline rush.
This summer Polakow took things a step further and earned himself the title of the first windsurfer ever to ride the legendary Cloud Break in Fiji. On spotting the epic forecast heading to Fiji, Polakow wasted no time in arranging flights, accommodation and ski to take him out to the huge break. Polakow was treated to one of the most exhilarating days of his life as destroyed the enormous waves with his unique and aggressive style.
But, riding one of the largest waves in the world comes with its health risks, one mighty wipe-out saw Polakow take two gigantic waves on his head and resulted in stitches to his eye; however that didn’t stop the master from ripping the wave to pieces for the rest of the day.
