Addicted to Big Air – Graham Howes

So we tried a different take on this year Red Bull King of the Air video.. Yes it’s a little deep.. a little too pretty.. and a little long.. So if you don’t like the sound of my voice skip to 1:00 mark for some big air Cape Town Action. Strong wind is what keeps me alive.

In February 2013 Red Bull King of The Air returns from an 8 year Hiatus to a stunning new location: Big Bay in Cape Town, South Africa

Red Bull King of the Air has found new energy to bring back the wow-factor of kiteboarding. In the past Red Bull King of The Air was the most prestigious event in kiteboarding, where the world’s best battled it out with the biggest airs. The sport has gone in many different directions since. Now eight years later, an all new format focused on extreme big airs and a new location is going to bring us to new heights of kiteboarding.

During this event we have the 16 best kiteboarders invited by the King Of The Air committee and eight wildcards will be divided through international and national kiteboarders that send in their most extreme tricks. The event is set to take place on the windiest day in the first two weeks of February. If you want to see this crazy action from up close come join us at Big Bay, Cape Town, South Africa.


DATE: 1- 15 Feb (window period) the event is a one day event
