Aaron Hadlow Claims the Red Bull King of the Air Title Once Again

The waters of Cape Town’s Big Bay were turned into the scene of intense kiteboarding action over the past few days, as they hosted the Red Bull King of the Air 2016. The world’s elite gathered here to display an incredible show in front of a huge audience.

UK’s Aaron Hadlow proved to be the most technical and inspired rider and won the competition, defending his prestigious Big Air title. The final day was packed with action. Reno Romeu (BRA), Kevin Langeree (NED) and Jesse Richman (USA) were on top of the game, but Aaron proved to be the best in the end.

A quick word from the champ: “You can never expect how it’s going to go in the final and to be there with 2 past champions, I really had to go for it. I mixed it up, did some big kiteloops and landed my megaloop KGB which also helped me win last year. The combination of the big waves with the strong wind made such a difference - it was an epic final. It’s insane to see how many people come down and how much energy the crowd gives you. There’s no better way to start the year than with this win.”
