I put so much time into training and coming out on top is just magical as there was a lot of pressure on me as defending champ. Jesse and Liam were on fire and went big. I had to pull everything out of the bag. I couldn't be happier!" 5). Keving Langeree perform during the Red Bull King of the Air in Cape Town, South Africa on Wednesday 6 February, 2019 Photographer Credit: Ydwer van der Heide / Red Bull Content Pool Head judge Alex Vliege added: "The action was mind blowing.

Price giving during the Red Bull King of the Air in Cape Town, South Africa on Wednesday 6 February, 2019 Photographer Credit: Ydwer van der Heide / Red Bull Content Pool Red Bull King of the Air fact file. The very first Red Bull King of the Air ran at the hallowed windsurfing spot, Ho’okipa, on the Hawaiian islands of Maui in 2000 with the event evolving into how high and far competitors could go in storm force winds. Riders like Ruben Lenten began throwing ‘mega loops’ up to 40 feet high, which saw the event move to Cape Town in 2013 where it has stayed ever since. Crowds up to 13,000 pack the shoreline to see riders hit speeds of around 30 knots, often aided by a south-easterly wind known as the ‘Cape Doctor’. Judges look at Extreme Big Air and Overall Impression with height (70%) favoured over extremity (30%) and the three best tricks of a run counted. A fourth unique score for overall impression is determined by considering technical difficulty, style, variety, execution, risk, show and innovation. by: redbullcontentpool.com

Rider: James Carew / Photo: Ydwer van der Heide Of course we're kicking everything off next month with round one of the Kite-Surf World Tour at the awesome wave of Punta Preta, Cape Verde, from 25th February - 3rd March. AFRICAN KITEBOARDING CHAMPIONSHIPS: 8 - 10TH MARCH, DAKHLA, MOROCCO 3). Complete 2019 gka kite world tour calendar. The first pan-African professional kiteboarding competition: Marking the very first professional pan-African competition ever staged in kiteboarding, the championships are also the first freestyle kiteboarding competition under the new leadership of the GKA. This will also be the first event run under the new GKA freestyle rulebook. Riders who compete in the African Kiteboarding Championships are not only battling it out to be the 2019 African Champion, but as this is a qualifier event for the GKA African Kite Freestyle World Cup event in Dakhla, which takes place in June 2019, the top four male and the top four female riders will automatically qualify to compete in the GKA Freestyle World Cup event in Dakhla. CALLING ALL RIDERS: the African Kiteboarding Championships event is open to freestyle riders from all African nations: female and male, fourteen years of age and older. Participants must be citizens of an African nation. For more information on how to inscribe for this event, please contact jo@global-kitesports.org CAN CARLOS BECOME KING OF ALL? 4). Carlo Mario - GKA Air Games & WKC Champion / Photo: Ydwer van der Heide / GKA World Tour Carlos Mario is now a 4 x World Champion - and claimed two of those championships in 2018, by winning the GKA Kiteboarding 'Air Games' and the World Kiteboarding Championship. Those two tours have now amalgamated as one under the GKA of course for 2019. As GKA Air Games World Champion, Red Bull naturally invited the Brazilian phenomenon to take a wildcard slot at this year's King of the Air. We're excited to see how this incredible freestyler can further adapt his skills to the challenges of Big Air. Could he complete an incredible year by claiming KOTA too? We wish Carlos and all riders well for the event that has just been given the green light for a start on Thursday - and to stay safe. There is after all a huge stack of world tour events for these guys to go to battle on throughout 2019! Tune in to the livestream at: www.redbullkingoftheair.com 5).

Brand new double carbon stringers on the deck and bottom give the new Raptor a new dynamic feel. The 2019 Raptor – experience future now. crazyflykites.com/boards/raptor facebook.com/crazyflykites CrazyFly Foils 2019 Product Overview We are pleased to introduce a brand new foil products range. Of course, all foil products are produced in Europe. The foils are made with the most advanced composite technology – prepreg Autoclave. Prepreg carbon fiber composites always have the perfect ratio of resin spread evenly and create the best molecular bonding. Prepreg composite lamination is a dry process, as prepreg carbon fiber composites are stored cold. Then they are CNC knife cut and hand placed into the mold. The Autoclave ensures correct pressure and heat are applied for a very specific time frame. This results in by far the best strength to weight ratio which is essential for high performance foils. When designing our foils, we also though about travel and storage convenience, so our mounting system is very simple and quick to assemble and take apart. Both foil boards are taking advantage of carbon fiber. While the F-lite is a full carbon ultra-light board, the Chill board has a carbon fiber stringer. When it comes to foiling, carbon is by far the most superior material for transferring energy in the fastest and most dynamic way, resulting in unmatched foiling experience. crazyflykites.com/foil facebook.com/crazyflykites
