- 20 February 2014 | Windsurfing
Kerry (Ireland), Marrawah (Tasmania), and Cornwall (United Kingdom). The Red Bull Storm Chase 2013/2014 saw the world's best extreme sailors testing the power of Nature.
It has been hailed the ultimate windsurfing challenge. Thomas Traversa, Marcilio Browne, Leon Jamaer, and Dany Bruch fought for the final glory under hurricane-force winds and double mast-high waves.
The final of the Red Bull Storm Chase 2013/2014 was just one third of the journey. After three fat storms, ten sailors, and the entire planet as a stage, there are plenty of images to be shown.
Josh Angulo, Marcilio Browne, Dany Bruch, Kenneth Danielsen, Victor Fernandez Lopez, Boujmaa Guilloul, Leon Jamaer, Robby Swift, Julien Taboulet and champion Thomas Traversa participated in an epic adventure into the unknown.
In the Red Bull Storm Chase, waves and jumps are scored on a scale from 1 to 10. However, focus is on radicalness and height. An extremely high jump without a clean landing can get higher scores than a clean landed one.
Red Bull Storm Chase 2014 Final:
1. Thomas Traversa (France)
2. Marcilio Browne (Brazil)
3. Leon Jamaer (Germany)
4. Dany Bruch (Germany)
