The new format will see an increased number of participants in the event through a qualification round, and there will be no gender preferences. Kiteboarders who think they have what it takes to compete in with the world’d best aerialists in an extreme air contest, are invited to submit a one-minute video of their biggest airs to redbullkingoftheair.com. Entries are open to any riders, male or female, from anywhere in the world. 2).Red Bull King of The Air Event Format © Red Bull The deadline for submissions is 15 November 2019. From these, the event committee will select the top 14 clips. These riders will then earn a spot in the official qualification round. This will take place at a floating Cape Town venue that providing the best conditions somewhere between 24 and 31 January 2020. Four wildcards will join the 14 invitees in a Dingle format (repecharge) event. The top six riders from this event will then go on to compete against the six top finishers from 2019 in the Red Bull King of the Air main event at Kite Beach, Cape Town. The weather window for the main event will be 1 to 16 February 2020 “Reducing the Main Fleet from 18 to 12 riders will allow us to concentrate the core part of the event in for a pure-adrenaline, extreme kiteboarding showcase,” said Cantagalli. “This event is unique in that it is in continued evolution with the input of the riders and the judges it is always our aim at improving it,” he added. According to Cantagalli, the judging panel are looking for video clips featuring big, completed, aerials. “The judges must clearly be able to see the potential of the rider".

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
