The anti-surf-competition surf competition stops at Sandy Beach on Saturday October 28th
Honolulu, HI (October 6, 2023) – Red Bull Foam Wreckers, the participatory event series where only foam (soft-top) surfboards are allowed, is the anti-surf-contest surf contest with minimal rules and maximum fun.
After an overwhelming response to last year’s debut at Sandy Beach with 128 local competitors and over 1,000 spectators, the competition returns to Oahu on Saturday, October 28.
“This one-of-a-kind surf contest has something for everyone,” says Red Bull athlete Jamie O’Brien, who is also a contest judge and foam board fanatic. “Soft boards take the pressure off, and allow people of all skill levels to surf carefree. You don’t have to be an expert to participate in this competition. It’s about pushing your creative limits, feeding off the crowd’s energy, and ultimately – having fun.”
The event series spans nine different beaches from March through November 2023, with this being the only event in Hawaii.
