In Summer 2012 the RED BULL Storm Chase is coming up again after 2006. This extreme sport event will bring the ultimate fight: men vs. nature
Quoting windsurfing legend Robby Nash:”Windsurfing in storm surf separates men from the boys.”
RED BULL Storm Chase is a typical RED BULL event. Extreme. Dangerous. Unpredictable. The extreme is part of the show. From 1st August until 30th November the RED BULL Storm Chase is on when the wind is expected to exceed 10 Beaufort (100kmh), everywhere in the world on three different spots. There are just 48 hours for the surfers to get there before the storm strikes.
