Watch: Surfers brave unforgiving waves in contest described as 'borderline insanity'

Source: Red Bull One commentator described the action at today's opening day of the Red Bull Cape Fear event like this: "Cape Fear is like a high school bully. It's just grabbing all these guys and giving them a big old wedgie." Unfortunately for a few of the competitors involved, it was a little worse than that as some of the world's best and bravest surfers took to the water at Cape Solander in Sydney in a contest described as "borderline insanity".
