Extreme kiteboarders boost massive airs at Red Bull King of the Air 2017

Red Bull King of The Air is the most prestigious big-air kiteboarding contest in the world. The event sees Cape Town’s Big Bay play host to an elite selection of the world’s best kiteboarders as they go head-to-head in a unique ‘flag out’ competition format.

The competition has a two-week weather window, within which riders face-off only once conditions are perfect – a consistent south-easterly wind of over 30-knots and enough swell running from which to boost their mind-bending aerial maneuvers. Their challenge – to master the elements and rule the sky, with the ultimate goal of being crowned king of the air.
