Publish date:

Santa Monica, CA (MARCH 4, 2019) – It’s a California dream brought to life: surf in the morning, then head to the mountains to ski or snowboard in the afternoon, experiencing the accessibility of the unique lifestyle activities that California has to offer. To bring this to life, Red Bull is hosting 300 college students for a day of adventure on March 23rd at Red Bull Switchboard; the ultimate day of California living.

Beginning at 8am in two locations – Huntington Beach, near Los Angeles, CA and Ocean Beach, San Diego, CA – students will come together with like-minded boardsport enthusiasts for a morning surf. Following a spring session in the Pacific and a hosted breakfast, students will then climb aboard shuttle buses and head to the mountains. Southern California students will ski or board at Big Bear Resort, just a short drive from the ocean, and celebrate the two-sport day at Red Bull Plaza in Big Bear.

The entire experience is expected to last 12 hours, and participates will be joined by Red Bull athletes as they experience the unique landscape that SoCal has to offer.

This event offers rewards in the way of waves caught, miles covered and slopes ridden. Registration is limited to 300, but is open to all college-aged men and women.

March 23rd will be a day for memories and the true California experience, the longest and best day of college.

Registration is open here.
