What a great day yesterday at the Big Air Kite League event at Dolphin Beach, SA. Amazing to see so many of the top guys still going full send in every heat, even without the chance of any real prize money or becoming the “King”, instead just putting on an amazing show. And hats off to the BAKL for showing you can run a BIG event well, with hard work and no real budget!
Here’s a quick edit with a few of my favourite shots – great opportunity to test our my new Canon Xf705 camera, perfect for shooting stuff like this.

Congrats to Ross-Dillon Player for claiming the top spot in what was probably one of the windiest big air events Cape Town has seen – it was scary to watch how close his megaloops were right along the shoreline! And sorry for the lack of clips of RDP – I only shot up to the semi’s and only released afterwards I was focusing on the wrong Naish rider in his heats, doh!
