Vom 05.01 bis 17.03.2018

The most challenging windsurfing contest of all time is back. Mobile and reactive, the competitors and contest team will wait for a Force 10 storm to hit the Northern Hemisphere in winter 2018.

Then the battle is on.

Contest format

Red Bull Storm Chase is a windsurf contest unlike any other in the world. Restricted to neither time nor place, the contest only happens when a suitable storm develops, with enough advance warning for the riders and crew to get to safe location to hold the contest as the storm strikes.

When the perfect storm arrives, eight riders – four finalists from the last Red Bull Storm Chase, and four riders selected for this year – will mobilize to the event location. On site, the judges will determine the best multi-heat format for competition, with a keen eye towards safety. They’ll be rewarding points for height, style, creativity, wave size, and more as they determine who is th

e best storm sailor on the planet. Competition will take place over two days as conditions permit.

This is Red Bull Storm Chase, a unique windsurfing event. Follow and contribute to Red Bull Storm Chase on Facebook and Instagram.
