Video entries are now closed for the most prolific big-air Kiteboarding contest in the world. After much deliberation the last nine participants have been chosen and they now secure their place for the final showdown with the hope of taking the title of Red Bull King of the Air 2019 Champion.


Confirmed for the 2019 event are Lewis Crathern, Kevin Langeree and Liam Whaley along with past champions Jesse Richman, Aaron Hadlow and 2017’s winner Nick Jacobsen. Amongst some of the familiar faces like Ruben Lenten, Jerrie Van De Kop and South Africans Josh Emanuel and Ross Dillon Player in the mix, there are also a couple of new names to join the field. GKA Kiteboarding 'Air Games' World Champion, Carlos Mario will make his debut at the event.

The renowned kiteboarding competition will return to Kite Beach, Cape Town – arguably the Cape’s Mecca for Kitesurfing – for the second time early next year and will have a window period of two weeks in late January and early February 2019 with the competition being run on the windiest day.
