The Red Bull Storm Chase is back for 2012

May 1, 2012

Three fat storms above 10 Beaufort, 10 sailors, and the entire planet as a stage. These are the breathtaking ingredients for the most-challenging windsurfing contest of all time. From now on you can suggest your favourite spots as competition grounds on redbullstormchase.com. You can also register to take part – if you dare. 10 Storm Chasers will be voted by the windsurfing community around the world between July 2nd and July 16th. From August 1st until November 30th the Red Bull Storm Chase is on.
 
What does it feel like in the eye of a raging storm? The 2006 Red Bull Storm Chase Europe created the concept of windsurfing genuine storm conditions. This time it’s going global. By hunting down 3 massive storms anywhere in the world, the 10 best athletes will battle for the crown of ultimate storm windsurfer. The contest format is simple: 10 riders compete in the first mission. Six of them advance to mission number two. In the final mission the top 4 riders will battle for the ultimate Storm Chaser’s crown. To guarantee raging conditions, Red Bull Storm Chase 2012 will be mobile to the max, with a 4-month holding period and just 48 hours to mobilise riders and global contest crew on-site before the storm strikes. The starting flag goes up when the winds exceed 10 Beaufort (54 knots / 100 kmh / 62 mph).

From now on anyone who dares can apply for a starting place at the event website: http://www.redbullstormchase.com. Heavy weather skills, gear and full commitment to the event are required. When the storm calls there can be no excuses! But we don’t need to tell you that, do we?

Red Bull/Sands photoBy submitting spots and voting the riders, anyone can be a part of the Red Bull Storm Chase without even getting wet. Your choice of mission locations is critical. Until the end of May you can suggest spots for the three missions. In early July a distinguished panel of experts will nominate the top 50 candidates from the submitted riders for the public voting stage. During a 2-week online voting period, you can pick your favourite high wind wave specialists from the pro and amateur windsurfing scenes. The 10 athletes with the most votes will be battling for the ultimate Storm Chaser‘s crown.
 
The global hunt begins on August 1st and will run for a period of four months until the end of November. At the event website you can be involved in all stages of the event and view all daily updates, rules, results, photos and videos. So don’t miss the chance to be part of the event.
