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 Jamie Sterling. After riding the big waves, participants took a two-hour journey up to Bear Mountain for an afternoon on the slopes with professional snowboarders John Jackson and Brock Crouch.
“It was an awesome day doing two of my favorite sports,” Sterling said. “It’s a unique thing to be able to do two board sports in one day and hanging out with all the college kids was a blast. Being able to participate in surf and snow in the same day was a first for me and a really great experience,” said Sterling.
From swimsuits and water to thermals and snow, Red Bull Switchboard put a smile on every participants face.
