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.
There can be no excuses about not getting the right wave, or lady luck not being on side when the each competitor is guaranteed a perfect head high wave every few minutes.
The Red Bull Water Maze, is a unique event that combines flat water SUP racing with an orienteering format to test stamina, speed, strategy and decision making.
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 event itself will see 112 surfers competing for the Volcom Pipe Pro title, that will be defended by the reigning 2014 champion Kelly Slater
During the King of The Air event, riders, compete to go all out and aim to score the biggest air, whilst going as extreme as is humanly possible in the process.
Red Bull are well known for thinking outside the box when it comes to holding unique and different events
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.
Andy also talks quite candidly about that session at Nazare, how he feels when he is out there, what it feel alike to be involved in a wipeout there and we even get a look at his very unique Surfboard.
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.
