Who will be the King of the Air 2018?

If you’re a fan of extreme sports, there's only one tournament to keep an eye on for the next two weeks as the Red Bull King Of The Air kiteboarding event returns to Cape Town. Between the 27th of January to the 11th of February, 18 riders from around the world will battle it out on the waves of Kite Beach, Blouberg for the 2018 title.

The two-week weather window allows the contest directors to wait for the perfect conditions. The wind has to be pumping consistent speeds of over 30 knots with a decent swell for the riders to boost themselves into the air. The contest directors, along with riders, decided to move the event from Big Bay to Kite Beach, a spot that is perfectly exposed to get the most out of the wind and swell on offer.
