RED BULL KING OF THE AIR
26 January - 10 February 2019
Kite Beach - Blouberg, Cape Town
This year riders will be blowing it up at Kite Beach, Blouberg for a second year running. Kite Beach offers riders some insane boost, with consistent wind speeds that can reach north of 30 knots. It’s guaranteed to get epic, so make sure you grab your spot asap.
Currently in Cape Town for King of the Air? While we’re all crossing our fingers for 30 knots or more for over the next couple of weeks, if that isn’t the case we’ve pulled together a few places to check out when there’s no wind.
Nick is currently the only athlete in the world with a set of North prototype kites, he’ll be using these to take on the best of the best at this event.
The field for the 2019 Red Bull King of the Air will be made up of top nine riders from the 2018 edition as well as nine wildcards and video entrants...So, after much deliberation the last nine participants have been chosen, securing their place for the showdown on the windiest day during the waiting period in early 2019.
