It’s called the “anti-contest” surfing competition, simply because the good times are the focus on the job.

“The full motion of the soft-top is so much fun, and the possibility of people surfing carelessly bonding is so inviting,” Jimmy O’Brien“I feel Red Bull Foam Wreckers is the coolest competition in the world, because anyone can win. It’s not about how great you are, it’s about how much fun you can have and how creative you are.”

Foam Wreckers is a series of competitions taking place across the country this summer, where surfers have to ride soft-surfaced boards determined by the luck of the drag, and judging rewards good times on great surfing. Stops include Wrightsville Beach, Kauai, San Diego, Pensacola Beach, Atlantic City, Virginia Beach, San Diego, Oahu, Cocoa Beach, and even Bend, Oregon, BSR Surf Resort in Waco, Texas that collapsed in May.

Each Foam Wreckers event will be a little different. Obviously, the wave of the Deschutes River in Oregon will provide a different platform than the beaches of Kauai. But before surfing, Shred’s wheel will spin to decide which board you’re riding on and then hit the waves with up to 10 people at a time. You will surf all ages and all genders together.

Were you a rookie local champion a few decades ago?


You just learned how to trim your hair last year when you were on vacation?

even better.

And you never know who might appear in Foam Wreckers. This is a chance to beat a local champion or a pro. Perhaps the most amazing aspect is that athletes from other sports are known for showing up. last year, Eric Coston And the Bucky Lasik They did their first ever surfing events.

Surfboards with an oddly smooth surface have become a part of every surfer’s quiver in the past decade. Once considered that beginners learn to surf without losing consciousness or smashing someone else’s kneecap, the surf paradigm has changed from a laser focus on performance to a broader scope that is more inclusive and often veered into the realm of absurdity.

The atmosphere of the event is as festive as the competition with parties, music and perhaps some adult drinks served with an energy drink. Catch surfers like O’Brien (JOB), Tyler Stanaland and Kalani Robb who will attend various events as well as game fans Ben Graffi.

JOB, considered one of the most high-performance surfers on the planet since working his way through trials to the 2004 Pipe Masters and winning the event (which included Kelly Slater, both Irons brothers and Sunny Garcia) became the poster child of the foam movement, which he publicly endorsed Catch the wavesWho is Red Bull’s partner in this event? His quest to produce his own content with erotic amusingThe brand’s foams have made good use of the brand’s foam and paid off for both the company and the ambassador. JOB cruising at 8’6 through an inflatable rainbow gets as much love now as when he makes an impossible section in the Backdoor. And while they’re all generally low-performing, Catch Surf boards perform better than some lower-priced brands.

With all this, it became something that used to be considered a game of pool Very popular on every beach in the country. Softboards are cheaper than traditional, which makes them a preferred choice for newcomers. Experienced surfers put their children in the waves on soft tops simply because they are safer, and realize that in most everyday conditions at local breaks it is better to catch the waves than to suffer in a short performance.

The beauty of Foam Wreckers is that you never know who will show up. You may have a chance of being the best local professional.
