Livestream Cancelled for the King of the Air Tomorrow

Red Bull King of the Air action wrap up video

But we’ll still be reporting on one of the year’s most special days of kitesurfing! 

We are incredibly grateful for the huge expense, time and effort that Red Bull and Red Bull South Africa pour into the #kingoftheair each year, and for largely re-invigorating the purest form of kiteboarding – big air.

Red Bull more than doubled their team and logistics this year but the two week window has been unusually frustrating during this waiting period and the expense and team of people needed to run a livestream of the calibre that we saw on Wednesday is enourmous and still nothing is guaranteed. Red Bull have just confirmed that:

“Due to the extensive delays we’ve experienced because of unpredictable weather, there will be no livestream of the final day of competition.”

But they will be reporting @RedbullZA at www.redbullkingoftheair.com and of course they have some amazing photographers and as usual a video team to capture the best of the action for a wrap up.

Tomorrow the conditions do look promising and fingers crossed that the event absolutely goes off – everyone involved on every level deserves it! We will be there on the ground covering things and supporting the teams and the riders as much as possible through Kiteworld and The Kite Show channels.

Tomorrow has the potential to be another one for kitesurfing’s history books. Perhaps after seeing the production that Red Bull already invested into Wedesday’s livestream… we all got a little spoiled!

Good luck to everyone tomorrow and bring on the Valentine’s Day Cape Doctor action! Enjoy the updates and your weekend. 


Updates as always though the Kiteworld Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and the Kite Show Facebook and Twitter as we’re live on the ground. Catch up on round one and more background video content at www.thekiteshow.tv
