We have seen this before. Full video here.

Again, I think this has to be a tow up. Others have mentioned updrafts, but I am not convinced.

That's a nice thermal! Didn't look like a tow up to me because he's going down wind. I mean yeah it definitely looks like he's being towed up because he keeps gaining height that's a crazy thermal to do that.

Usually a thermal feels like you get your first boost then at the peak you get a second boost.

Doesn't look like tow up to me. It's windy...then you won't need a tow up.
