The history of life saving is rich and storied. Red Bull is helping that history come alive for contemporary ocean-goers.

Bruckner Chase is headlining the Red Bull Surf + Rescue Immersion Experience on July 19th on the Boardwalk in Atlantic City, New Jersey at the Red Bull Surf + Rescue Venue.

The Red Bull Surf + Rescue Immersion Experience is a training session designed to provide VIP members of the media with insight into the mind and body challenges faced every day by ocean lifeguards.

The experience will engage participants first hand in the basic skills involved with the multiple disciplines of Red Bull Surf + Rescue.

Chase and his colleagues will share the type of knowledge, skill and training required of all ocean lifeguards with participants. VIP guests will have a hands-on introduction to surf lifesaving sports from both elite Red Bull Surf + Rescue competitors and Chase who serves as the Red Bull Surf + Rescue Technical Director. “Those willing to take on the challenge will experience what it is like to think and perform as a professional surf lifesaving athlete by completing swim, paddle and row segments of the championship event course alongside an elite athlete partner,” explained Chase.

“The Red Bull Surf + Rescue Immersion Experience will kick off with introductions to the Red Bull Surf + Rescue staff and competitors, followed by brief overview of ocean safety and conditions, lifeguard training, qualification standards, and the sport’s demanding training regimes. Participants will join on-land introductions to ocean swimming, prone paddleboarding, and rescue boat rowing.

The VIP guests will also be paired with a Red Bull Surf + Rescue athlete or coach and have the opportunity to get in the water and put their new skills to the test with a 100m swim, 150m paddle, and a 300m row, followed by a Q&A session and interview and photo session.

The Red Bull Surf + Rescue Immersion Experience will be held between 8:00 – 9:30 am on July 19th with Bruckner Chase (Red Bull Surf + Rescue Technical Director and lifeguard), Anne Skimmons (Sea Girt Beach Patrol lifeguard, Red Bull Surf + Rescue 2015 Champion), Phill Lloyd (Beach Haven Beach Patrol lifeguard and Dolphin Surf Craft/Barrier Waterman), Nate Humberson (Barnegate Light Beach Patrol lifeguard and USLA High Performance Squad Member), and Chris Eisibill (Beach Haven Beach Patrol lifeguard and surf lifesaving athlete).
