Fairly dormant winter swell period forces extension

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 30 July, 2015 - Sydney - Red Bull Cape Fear is one of the world’s most unique sporting events, it pits slab surfing specialists in one-on-one battles and combines both paddle and tow in surfing at one of the world’s most dangerous waves.

The event waiting period began on 5 May and after a fairly dormant winter swell period, the waiting period has been extended until August 31.

“It seems like all of Oz aside from the east coast has seen massive swells so far this winter. Hopefully August will be our month!” - Mark Mathews, Contest Director and the brains behind Red Bull Cape Fear.
