Ian Walsh To Take The Red Bull Exam

A Chapman University Student Journeys into the Mind of a Professional Athlete


WHAT: Red Bull Athlete Exam is a project that will give a local college student the opportunity to interview a professional athlete in a live talk show format.  The concept is the brainchild of student Adam Bollinger, who is majoring in Television and Broadcast Journalism at Chapman University.  Bollinger decided to incorporate his love of action sports and surfing into his senior project. On May 7th Bollinger will sit down one-on-one with pro surfer Ian Walsh and put what he's learned at college to the test, all in front of a live audience.  In his quest to discover what makes Walsh tick – and to hopefully earn an A on the project – Bollinger will delve into Walsh's past and present, and watch never-before-seen footage from the upcoming "Young Jaws" set to release this fall.

The event is an all ages free event, but space is limited and entry will be granted on a first-come first-serve basis.  Press can secure guaranteed entry beforehand by contacting the media contacts listed below.

WHO: Pro surfer Ian Walsh, Chapman University's Adam Bollinger as host, students, faculty, and surf enthusiasts.
