They are off to my old home country, winds like these are what we lived for, (not so much the swells that size though!)
Good luck to Jager Stone from Australia. it will be EPIC!!!!
I like they are doing these type of events but I have to say given they would be spending well North of $200k to organise this I am stunned by how poor their communication has been.
I still haven't been able to figure out who exactly is competing. I know Koester and Stone are additional to 4 people that have pre-qualified. But I only know that because I happen to see it on their Facebook / Instagram feeds.
I am amazed a company like Red Bull would do such a poor job at comms. Even more so given how well publicised it was in the past.
That's from 2 odd years ago...Current media can only be found in the Red Bull Content Pool:
Thats a BIG concept for an event, maybe too big?
They have done this a few times now and the team behind it from my understanding has been the same. That said the conditions they are looking at today will be pretty epic.
Think I would prefer sailing in it than flying that chopper.
