Red Bull Storm Chase Marches Towards 2013

Marcilio Browne, Daniel Bruch, Ricardo Campello, Victor Fernandez Lopez, Boujmaa Guilloul, Philip Köster, Kai Lenny, Robby Swift, Julien Taboulet, and Thomas Traversa, the brave riders who will take part in one of them most daring man vs. nature windsurfing challenge are ready to tackle the biggest storm waves in 2013.

The goal of Red Bull Storm Chase is simple: to find and conquer three massive storms in order to determine the world’s storm windsurfing champion. All sailors are on standby from the 10th of January till the 22nd of March for the first two competition periods. The second competition window is open from the 22nd of July onwards.

There are seven possible destinations for the Red Bull Storm Chase riders: Brittany (FRA), Cape Hatteras/US East Coast (USA), Galicia (ESP), the south west coast of Iceland, the North West coast of Ireland, Omaezaki at the south east coast of Japan, and the North West coast of Tasmania (AUS).

Klaas Voget, Red Bull Storm Chase sports director states: "Statistically we have two main global storm seasons: January until March and July until September. That's why we decided to split the waiting period into two parts. […] After a four month break in spring we'll continue the chase in mid-July to hunt down the final storm for the ultimate showdown."
