The forecast is said to be the best since 2001 with perfect winds set to tickle a massive swell, and you will be able to watch every glorious moment via a live stream on Red Bull TV.
If you are prepared to throw yourself down some of the worlds biggest and scariest waves, you need to have a fair amount of confidence in your own abilities and fitness.
Local surfer, contest organiser and defending champion Mark Matthews considers Cape Fear as ‘the heaviest and most dangerous wave in the world’ and that comes from someone who thrives on chucking himself into ‘bombs’ on a regular basis!
The swell wasn’t as big as the organisers had hoped for but that didn’t mean there weren’t heavy wipeouts and big slab by barrels to be enjoyed.
Whenever Red Bull get behind a sport they always seem to help push it that little bit beyond what most people would deem as sane.
