RBSC - TASMANIA

An incredible Mission #2 lies ahead. Get ready... It's an official "Go" for Tasmania!

With Mission number two of the incredible Red Bull Storm Chase about to take place off of the ferocious shores of Tasmania, Victor Fernandez (Fanatic / North / MFC), Marcilio Browne (Goya Windsurfing / MFC), Julien Taboulet, Thomas Traversa (Tabou / Gaastra), Dany Bruch (Starboard / Severne / AL360) and Leon Jamaer (Fanatic / Hot Sails Maui) who replaces the unfortunately injured Robby Swift (JP / NeilPryde / Mystic / Maui Ultra Fins) are all preparing to battle it out man vs. man vs. nature within the cooking seas around Marrawah in about 100 hours from now:

Location and Conditions

Tasmania is located 240 kilometres to the south of the Australian continent, separated by Bass Strait - right in the “roaring fourties” -  has the highest wind statistics in Australia and also compared to the other possible destinations of the southern hemisphere.

The coast is wild, with absolutely massive wave (up to 15 m swells recorded by wave buoys) and there are plenty of spots to choose from around Marrawah for any storm force direction.

We are looking forward to see these guys rip!
