  1. 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).

  2. Welcome to Mauritius

    We heard there was a place, a place where countless cultures intertwine like the wind in the palm leaves. Colour coated villages with temples on every corner and the smell of roti’s sizzling through the alleys. Fields of soft sugarcane stretching to the base of mighty mountains, where every peak has its story. Scattered jungles guarding their mystical waterfalls where the wild things roam. Through the mangroves where mamas gather to wash their families clothing, here their rich soulful song in a language you recognise but can’t quite put your finger to. Past the gateway of trees lies white grains of sand with the sound of coconuts being battled by machetes. Here lies the guardian of the island, don’t be fooled by its crystal clear turquoise completion, for its forces are colossal. Out at the reef lay the one eyed barrels waiting to be tamed by the brave riders of life. Welcome to Mauritius.
  3. What’s In A Name?

    The action of 'What's in a Name' takes place 'somewhere in Africa, then 'somewhere in Brazil', then, again, 'somewhere in Africa', and so on. Starring some kiteboarding girls and guys. That's how an incredibly insensitive to beauty person would describe the following video on the basis of the words appearing on the screen. While watching it, however, you'll quickly realize that we are dealing with some of the most beautiful kiting spots in the world and people you're watching belong to the world top class riders. If you don't have 20 minutes to watch 'What's in a Name', find them!
