Red Bull Switchboard invites college students to embrace the California Dream by surfing in the morning and snowboarding or skiing in the afternoon this spring weekend in Southern California.
Students will get up early to catch the surf at event locations Huntington Beach and Ocean Beach, then head to Big Bear Mountain Resort to "switch boards" and hit the slopes. It's a true Warren Miller fantasy come to life!
