Check out the round one draws - some juicy action coming up!
Once again we have the pleasure of being involved in the Red Bull King of the Air, and last night was the opening ceremony in which they make the draw for the first round of heats. All the heats are stacked, but our pick is heat three - ouch!
The wind window for the event is two weeks from today, and Wednesday / Thursday next week are the first real possibilities. There will be a live stream running from the event. Kiteworld editor Jim will be running the live feed interviews from the beach, bringing you all the reaction as the riders come in and out of the water.
