Red Bull King of Air: Extreme Kiteboarding in Cape Town

Cape Town and its prolific summer South-Easter winds hosted the world’s most progressive kiteboarders in a head-to-head big air competition.

During a two-week weather window, riders from 11 nations waited for the windiest day – and with iconic Table Mountain as backdrop – both wind and sea delivered some pumping conditions. The UK’s own Aaron Hadlow claimed the throne ahead of Hawaiian Jesse Richman (who won in 2013) and Kevin Langeree from the Netherlands (2014 winner). The clinically technical Hadlow pulled his trademark Kiteloop KGB to complete the win, his second in a row.
