Adam sails Storms in the UK all the time. He's used to what he'll face in the Storm Chase and brings the skills and mindset to go out and charge when others hesitate.
Antoine is known as one of the most fearless guys on the PWA tour. He explores with different double rotations in the air and goes huge when it comes to waveriding. He's not afraid of crashing hard, he'd go back out and try the same thing again until he lands it.
Similar to the winner of the last Storm Chase - Thomas Traversa - Camille isn't scared to hits the biggest lips out there! He excels when it comes to heavy conditions on both tacks.

Jaeger is an allround talent. His wave riding is amongst the most styish on the planet, plus he brings exceptional jumping skills. He's finished on the podium in Pozo more than once - the windiest event on the PWA tour - making him a top choice for the Storm Chase.
Jules Denel is the ultimate Storm Chase character! His 'indestructable' appearance and 'let's go' attitude make him a top choice. He's used to cold weather and heavy waters and brings the skills to perfrom when the conditions are uncomfortable.

When you see Philip Köster on the list, you want to have him in! He brings the best port tack jumping skills on this planet, going absolutely massive in all of his jumps. Coming from super windy Gran Canaria and winning 3 World Titles shows that he he doesn't only has what it takes in the air, but also on the waves. We hope he's back on the water in time after his injury-break!
