Be Part of the Chase!
Red Bull Storm Chase wants you to be part of the Chase.
In fact, this is a vital aspect of the whole event. We’re counting on the global windsurfing community to get involved by suggesting destinations, registering for the competition and selecting the 10 Storm Chasers by voting online.
To make sure the 3 missions match the most perfect storms at the perfect time, you can nominate your favorite destinations until May 31st. Our team of experts will go through all the nominated destinations and assess them regarding their suitability for the competition. Six destinations will then be shortlisted and announced as possible competition locations on July 16th, three of them will be sailed.
You can also register to take part – if you dare. Registration is open between May 1st and June 28th. After the registration is closed, 50 applicants will be shortlisted by a jury of three highly acclaimed windsurfing experts: windsurfing legend Robby Naish, PWA head judge Duncan Coombs and first-class windsurfing photographer John Carter.
Next up, the global windsurfing community will elect the 10 Storm Chasers who will compete in the missions. Everybody will be able to cast 10 votes for his favorite athletes out of the 50 shortlisted sailors from July 2nd until July 15th.
Finally, from August 1st until November 30th the Red Bull Storm Chase is on.
Are you ready for the ride of your life?
