Most would say that Jacksonville Beach's coolest and most notorious gathering of the year is the Red Bull Night Riders surf contest. It took place this year on Friday, November 20 but this time, in front of a crowd-less beach at the Mayport Poles. Contestants and employees were the only ones permitted into the contest area due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We don't know a lot about the performances during the contest quite yet, but we will soon.
Red Bull and Stab Magazine are expected to release footage and content from the event here in the near future so hang tight. What we do know... is that team rider Cody Thompson walked away with the gold and a big check worth a whopping 5k. Here are some photos for you all to enjoy while we await the coveted footage from Friday night! Congrats Cody.
