Red Bull Switchboard, the ultimate action sports experience recap
Red Bull Switchboard brings out 600 students for the ultimate action sports dream day.
The SoCal sun was out in full force yesterday at Red Bull Switchboard, as more than 600 college students from over 25 different colleges participated in the ultimate action sports dream day of surf in the morning and snow in the afternoon.
Students from San Diego, Orange County, and Los Angeles began the day surfing at Huntington Beach and La Jolla Shores alongside professional surfer Ian Walsh. After riding the big waves, participants took a two-hour journey up to Bear Mountain for an afternoon on the slopes with professional snowboarder Denis “Bonus” Leontyev.
“I think my favorite thing about Red Bull Switchboard is just the atmosphere that the day has. Just being around all these kids from the colleges, they’re having such a good time, it’s like a big day party, surfing and snowboarding and you can just feed off their energy,” Walsh said. It makes the day so much more fun, and it really makes you appreciate what it is you are actually doing when you see how much fun everyone is having, and it makes the day fly by in the blink of an eye since you are doing so many activities” said Walsh.
From swimsuits and water to thermals and snow, Red Bull Switchboard put a smile on every participants face.
