    Two Kitesurfers Try Snowkiting in Norway - Red Bull Ragnarok 2019

      Cinematography

    Two pro Dutch kitesurfers, Lasse Walker and Steven Akkersdijk, go snowkiting for the first time during the world's most extreme snowkite event.

    The skies above Hardangervidda in Norway were once again filled with hundreds of kites as 250 participants from 30 different nations tackled the gruelling five-lap course. Competitors took on the challenge on either skis or snowboards, with only the very hardiest managing to overcome the changeable wind conditions to go the full distance.

     

    Participants in Red Bull Ragnarok attempt to use kite power alone to complete five laps of the course in the shortest possible time. The race format is a mass start and the kiters then have a five-hour time limit to finish the course.

      Lewis Crathern from England is especially famous for his breakneck jumps over piers in Worthing and Brighton.
       
      Lewis was taking part in Red Bull King of the Air 2016 and, unfortunately, suffered a very serious injury. While performing a mega loop with a backroll, his kite stalled and Lewis hit the water falling 65 feet.
       
      No brain damage occurred, there were no fractures and no damage of the internal organs. However, doctors decided to put Lewis into an induced coma until his condition is stable.
       
      Aaron Hadlow, the winner of Red Bull King of the Air 2016 said: "I couldn't help but think of one of my best mates missing out on the final and ending up in the hospital".

      And here we are after yesterday’s finale of another contest by Red Bull. There was no room for disappointment in Cape Town, as the weather, from the early Sunday morning, was just perfect for kiteboarding and Big Bay where it all took place gathered almost fifteen thousand fans.
       
      During the first round, on Thursday,  it was already clear who would be the real competition this year. Aaron Hadlow (GBR) was defending the title and Jesse Richman (USA) , Kevin Langeree (NED) and Reno Romeu (BRA) also placed themselves in the lead. Three of the mentioned contestants won the previous editions of the Red Bull event – Aaron in 2015, Kevin in 2014 and Jesse in 2013.  
       
      In the end, it was Aaron Hadlow who won the Sunday contest, at the same time becoming the first contestant in history to win the ‘King of the Air’ title twice.
