King of the air 2018

Red Bull King of The Air 2018

Cape Town

The most badass, big-air Kiteboarding contest in the world returns. It’s is all about the amplitude as contestants go head-to-head in a “flag out” competition format. During the two week weather window riders will only face-off in the perfect conditions – when the legendary Cape Doctor is at its epic best, punching out consistent wind speeds of over 30 knots and providing the perfect swell from which to boost some extreme manoeuvres.

This year will see the top nine from last year go up against nine riders chosen from the video submissions.

Riders will have to master the elements in an attempt to rule the skies – leaving a wake in the atmosphere with the ultimate goal of being crowned King of the Air 2018.


Have what it takes to compete with the world’s best aerialists? Then this is your shot. Upload a one-minute video of you pulling off your most extreme, big-air moves and you might be one of nine riders chosen to compete by our panel of judges.

It doesn’t need to be an edited masterpiece, just make sure it’s no yard sale. Entries close 30 November 2017.
