The Countdown Begins!

Cape Town and its prolific summer South-Easter will once again play host to the world’s most progressive kiteboarders as they go head-to-head to see who rules the sky. The Red Bull King Of The Air is due to take place at Big Bay on the windiest day between the 21st of January and 5th of February 2017.

Five of our riders have made it into the official line up, with two warming the bench on the reserves list; a very exciting and solid representation of our brand, gear and team riders that continue to push the limits in kiteboarding.

2 x King Of The Air Champion Aaron Hadlow will be joined by team mates Reno Romeu, Lasse Walker, Lewis Crathern and Tom Herbert, with Antoine Clerc and young gun Joss De Pfyffer waiting on the sidelines of the reserve list.

As one of the most prestigious and exciting events on the kiteboarding calendar, this is what some riders train for all year round. From skill on the water, through to strength training and nutrition off it, the Red Bull King Of The Air is no joke!
