With beautiful beaches and the Pacific Ocean surrounding our magnificent home, there are few better locations for watersports than the Hawaiian Islands. Combining elements of surfing and sailing, the windsurfing in Hawaii is absolutely phenomenal. But because the sport is dynamic – and practiced in windy and wavy conditions – it can be difficult to photograph. But luckily for us, Vimeo user Karim Iliya took to the skies to film this mesmerizing drone footage of the 2015 Novenove Aloha Classic of the American Windsurfing Tour in Ho’okipa, Maui.

Doesn’t this video make you want to learn how to windsurf now? I know that I’ve been looking for lessons on Oahu.
