May 1st signifies the start of the 2017 Red Bull Cape Fear waiting period. The unique, invitation-only big wave surf event, that last year was held in the heaviest waves ever surfed, is back!
Last year’s event was beyond my wildest imagination and I can hardly wait to see what Mother Nature throws up at Cape Solander this year. Having the 16 surfers from 2016 event and the additional four internationals will make for an unbelievable show. - Mark Mathews Contest Director
