Red Bull Storm Chase is an annual competition that is 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 â€“ four finalists from the last Red Bull Storm Chase, and four riders selected for this year â€“ will mobilize to the event location. Judges then reward points for height, style, creativity, wave size, and more as they determine who is the best storm sailor on the planet.
The competition will take place over two days as conditions permit. These are highlights from last year’s Red Bull Storm Chase.
