Red Bull Storm Chase: Perfect Storm in Ireland
More From Red Bull

10 of the world’s best windsurfers from eight countries completed a demanding competition in Kerry, Ireland during the first mission of the Red Bull Storm Chase – the most-challenging windsurfing contest of all time. Despite recorded storm-force gusts of up to 74 knots (137kmh) and fierce 20-ft waves, the sailors completed three rounds of competition in two locations on the Maharees peninsular. After possibly the most radical day in windsurfing history, Marcilio Browne, Dany Bruch, Victor Fernandez, Robby Swift, Julien Taboulet and Thomas Traversa advance to the second Mission of Red Bull Storm Chase.

1. Thomas Traversa (France)

2. Dany Bruch (Germany)

3. Julien Taboulet (Spain)

4. Marcilio Browne (Brazil)

5. Victor Fernandez (Spain)

6. Robby Swift (Great Britain)

7. Boujmaa Guilloul (Morocco)

8. Josh Angulo (Cape Verde)

9. Leon Jamaer (Germany)

10. Kenneth Danielsen (Denmark)

The top six sailors from the first mission will compete in the second mission.
Quote: Thomas Traversa, Storm Chaser (FRA):

It’s hard to describe how windy it was – there was way more than I ever anticipated. I saw that everyone was about as out-of-control as me, but we all tried our best, nobody complained and the most important thing is that everyone is safe. I like the contest format a lot and I think that for Mission 2 we’ll all be more prepared, relaxed and will know what to expect. I don‘t think it could really be any windier and still possible to sail - but I have a 2.5 that I’ll take on the next one for sure!
