Red Bull Storm Chase Mission One to Ireland

Jan 27, 2013

Ireland green-lighted! After 6 months of waiting the official GO for the first Mission of The Red Bull Storm Chase has finally been given. Ten of the world’s best windsurfers and the crew are now en-route to catch the tracking storm in time. The first round of the most-challenging windsurfing contest of all time is expected to start on Monday, January 28.

The spot: Brandon Bay, Ireland
Ireland is known for heavy storm surf and howling winds. Brandon Bay is a former PWA wave spot, where Red Bull Storm Chase can find the right break for almost any wind direction within a couple of kilometers. The bay allows perfect camera angles with stunning backgrounds. The sailors will have to fight with the fact that wind develops more power in colder temperatures. For the participants used to the warmer temperatures at home, this might become tricky...

The Athletes:
10 windsurfers will compete in Mission number one: Josh Angulo (CPV), Marcilio Browne (BRA), Daniel Bruch (GER), Kenneth Danielsen (DNK), Victor Fernandez Lopez (ESP), Boujmaa Guilloul (MAR), Leon Jamaer (GER), Robby Swift (GBR), Julien Taboulet (FRA), and Thomas Traversa (FRA). Only six of them advance to Mission number two.

The Contest:
Red Bull Storm Chase is the most-challenging windsurfing contest of all time. By hunting down 3 massive storms anywhere in the world, the 10 best sailors will battle for the crown of ultimate storm windsurfer. The contest format is simple: The top 10 sailors from the online voting compete in the first Mission. Six advance to the second and the four best riders to the final Mission. To guarantee raging conditions, Red Bull Storm Chase  will be mobile to the max, with a 10-month holding period and just 48 hours to mobilise riders and global contest crew on-site before the storm strikes.
