    to go off

    it's a windsurfer talking about him sailing.

    "you look down at the mountains and it's just going off, it couldn't be a better environment to go off."

    can the verb mean not to think about anything else, just enjoy the view or is it more something like it's such a beautiful view that it makes you want to let it go and surf as big as you can?

    It sounds as if the surf is firing away and exciting.

    Another possible meaning, is the wind was "going off" shore (from the land out to sea). In a windsurfing context, true for surfing too. Although the surfers around here would simply say "off shore"...

    Its not very clear what they are refering to exactly since "going off" can mean many different things. Can you give us more of the text around your quote?
