Vote Your Favorite Sailors!
In total 140 riders from 33 countries applied to participate in the Red Bull Storm Chase from the beginning of May until the end of June. 50 of them have been nominated for the online voting stage by windsurfing legend Robby Naish and his expert companions – PWA Head Judge Duncan Coombs and leading windsurfing photographer John Carter.
The jury was impressed
“We were blown away by the high level and band of sailors: prominent professionals like Victor Fernandez, Ricardo Campello and Philip Köster registered as well as hot-shot amateurs and promising rookies“, said Coombs. “This was definetely not an easy choice. Big thanks to all the riders who registered.” There's more feedback from the jury, which we'll cover in upcoming blog posts.

Now it is your turn to select the ones you want to see competing against each other in the three missions. To keep things exciting, only the current top 10 are displayed in random order within the voting section on the homepage. The voting is open until July 15th.
Here's how the voting works
First you'll have to log in using your Facebook account. We rely on Facebook login to keep the voting fair and counteract fraud by multiple voting accounts. You then have ten votes in total, but only one per rider. Your 10 votes can be used up at any time until the end of the voting period. Make your choice now!
