  1. True Big Air

    This is the one you can't miss - Aaron Hadlow, Lewis Crathern, Lasse Walker, Hannah Whiteley and Antonin Rangin going BIG AIR in Cape Town.
  2. Ross-Dillon Player rides the storm to triumph at Red Bull Megaloop. Zandvoort, Netherlands - June 8 2019 1). Participants in action during the Red Bull Megaloop in Zandvoort, The Netherlands on june 8 2019. Photographer Credit: Jarno Schurgers/Red Bull Content Pool After a two-year wait, wind and waves finally aligned to create perfect conditions for extreme kitesurfing competition Red Bull Megaloop, with young South African Ross-Dillon Player claiming the 2019 crown. The event was only confirmed on Thursday, when the weekend weather forecasts predicted winds of over 40 knots would hit the Dutch coast at Zandvoort. This gave the invited field of 16 international kiteboarders just 48 hours to make their way to the venue. 2). Participants in action during the Red Bull Megaloop in Zandvoort, The Netherlands on june 8 2019. Photographer Credit: Jarno Schurgers/Red Bull Content Pool The 16 participating athletes this year came from France, South Africa, Poland, Denmark and the Netherlands. Over 8,000 fans defied force-nine gale conditions to turn out to watch the action from the beach at Zandvoort's The Spot watersport club. The competition format pits riders against each other in heats of four, with each trying to perform the biggest tricks using the megaloop technique. Judges award points based on height, distance, style and performance of the megaloops, so one perfect jump within the heat’s time limit could see a rider progress to the next round. 3). Lasse Walker in action during the Red Bull Megaloop in Zandvoort, The Netherlands on june 8 2019. Photographer Credit: Jarno Schurgers/Red Bull Content Pool Conditions were initially difficult for the riders, with wave selection key on the choppy waters, but we were soon seeing them boosting up to 15m vertically and 50m in distance. The final heat saw two South Africans, Ross-Dillon Player and Oswald Smith, pitted against local favourite Lasse Walker and Spain-based Liam Whaley. Player laid down a strong early marker and held on to top spot throughout what was an extremely close finale. He eventually finished with a 7.90, just 0.3 points ahead of compatriot Smith. Walker’s 7.47 was enough to claim the final podium spot. Speaking after the event, a clearly emotional Player said: “Coming from the first round I thought I was going home, but after that I won every heat. That's four heats. I can't believe it, it just went so well.” 4).

Previous winners are Jerrie van de Kop in 2013, Lasse Walker in 2015 and Joshua Emanuel in 2017. by: Red Bull Content Pool
  3. Two pro Dutch kitesurfers, Lasse Walker and Steven Akkersdijk, go snowkiting for the first time during the world's most extreme snowkite event.
  4. I think we've all got used to the fact that at the end of each year the internet gets flooded with videos from 1 spot - Cape Town. Althought it's still 2 months to Red Bull King of the Air, I think that none of you have doubts why our today's stars are already there. Dirty Habits presents 'Boys Are Back in Town' - the 1st Kite of the Summer with the Pro's, starring Nick Jacobsen, Ruben Lenten, Kevin Langeree, Lasse Walker, Joshua Emanuel and Graham Howes.
  5. In another part of 'On the Fly' series titled 'The Mother City', the kiters are staying in Cape Town, South Africa. This time we will also see some stars - apart from Ruben, we'll see Nick Jacobsen, Aaron Hadlow, Kevin Langeree and Lasse Walker. We're in Cape Town so, obviously, there will be some megaloops, there's also gonna be a wedding in a vineyard and around 2:20, you'll have to close your eyes for a moment 'cause otherwise, you're gonna see some bare male butts! I forgot to close my eyes and now I'm writing this in my shrink's waiting room
  6. In the second episode of 'On the Fly' series, titled 'Where the Wind Blows', Ruben Lenten along with his friends, Lasse Walker and Gijs Wassenaar, first break the law and are held back by the police... then they're stuck in traffic. Definitely worth watching! Here's the first episode.
  7. Lasse Walker - Objectives

    For those who are not really aware of the results of Red Bull King of the Air in Cape Town, I have a warning: this text includes spoilers! North rider Lass Walker will tell us in the following video about his chase after the Holy Grail - a tough struggle during Red Bull King of the Air. In KOTA, 2016, Lass had a really bad crash and the recovery took him six months! 2017 was much better, however, his colleague from North team, Aaron Hadlow, won the horned trophy. Of course, it's hard to say what's gonna happen in 2018 but one thing is certain - after watching this video, we should pay special attention to the results of Lass Walker from the Netherlands.
  8. Lasse Walker

    Lasse Walker, 21 years of age and living in Noordwijk, The Netherlands. In 2007 I started kiteboarding and have been fully hooked ever since! Best results: 1st place Red Bull Megaloop Challenge & 5th place Red Bull King of the Air 2016
