Big Bay, Cape Town played host for the third time to Red Bull King of the Air 2015, with 24 of the best kiteboarders in the world, and thousands of fans to witness. It resulted in a very close battle for the crown and ended up seeing Aaron Hadlow taking the win, with Kevin Langeree in second place and Jerrie van de Kop in third.
Red Bull King of the Air is the premier big air Kiteboarding competition featuring the best athletes from around the World. Riders are judged based upon the height of their jumps, variety of tricks, and style.[
The event began in 2000 at Ho‘okipa, a beach known for windsurfing in Maui, Hawaii. After an 8-year hiatus, the competition was relaunched in 2013 in Blouberg Cape Town, South Africa, where it has been held annually since. The event is attended by over 7,000 people per day.
