Fourth Annual Red Bull Surf + Rescue

Red Bull Surf + Rescue is an elite life guarding competition open to beach patrols throughout the Mid-Atlantic Region, including New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia, and it is right around the corner!

The contest focuses on classic disciplines including swimming, sprinting, paddleboard relay, and a new Red Bull Rescue Championship Round that will bring all four team members together in a brutal, back to back rescue scenario combining the skills demanded of ocean lifeguards on beaches around the world. 50 teams will battle through a new four-round elimination format before a winning team is crowned and receives a 2018 Polaris® GENERAL® 4 1000 for their patrol.

Beach patrols all along the East Coast condition themselves and train year-round for when they’re called into action. These professional lifeguards have to remain at peak performance, and on July 17th, their skills will be put to the test in Red Bull Surf + Rescue. As a contest of the elites, that pays homage to the rich history of lifeguarding, while challenging the world-class watermen and women of the Mid-Atlantic region.

The event takes place at Bungalow Beach in Atlantic City on Tuesday, July 17, 2018 from4:30PM – 8:00PM.
