Earlier this week, the waiting period began for the highly-anticipated Red Bull Heavy Water race in San Francisco. And while it remains open until November 2, the event’s website currently has the surf window listed as “Red,” meaning there is no swell in sight for ten days. But as competitors nervously wait for Mother Nature to deliver one of her XXL swells that this race needs to run, Connor Baxter and Ryan Funk got in some practice at Ocean Beach. We’ll keep you updated on when the race is going to run but in the meantime, check out their practice session.
