Red Bull Cape Fear
The Science Behind the Slab

The Cape Fear wave is like nothing else on this earth. It’s shallow, unpredictable, steep, and a wave that’s nearly impossible to master. Unpredictable and treacherous on it’s best of days. With a keen look at the landscape, and a deep respect for the wave, surfers can arm themselves with the intel to take on the beast… but making it out clean is never a guarantee. Take an inside look at the science behind the slab, in preparation for the 2015 Red Bull Cape Fear Contest.
