Red Bull Athlete Exam:

Red Bull Athlete Exam Flyer

Come be a part of this unique live talk show, as we take a journey into the mind of professional big wave surfer Ian Walsh.

On May 7th, Adam Bollinger (Chapman University Student) will get to the root of what makes Walsh tick. What prompts Ian Walsh to surf some of the heaviest waves in the world? In front of a live audience, consisting of 300 or so of his peers, Bollinger will take a look into Ian Walsh’s past and present, and watch never-before-seen footage from the upcoming “Young Jaws” set to release this fall.

The event is an all ages free event, but space is limited and entry will be granted on a first-come first-serve basis. Doors open at 3 PM, live event starts at 4 PM sharp!

Check out the Facebook Event Page, or some of the awesome internet coverage Bolinger drummed up.
