The most badass, big-air Kiteboarding contest in the world returns. It’s is all about the amplitude as contestants go head-to-head in a “flag out” competition format. During the two week weather window riders will only face-off in the perfect conditions – when the legendary Cape Doctor is at its epic best, punching out consistent wind speeds of over 30 knots and providing the perfect swell from which to boost some extreme manoeuvres.

It’s more than big boosting that riders need to pull off. Style, technique and no small amount of fearlessness all play an integral part in scoring high, and it’s up to our hawk-eyed judges to accurately spot the differences between the manoeuvres taking place on the water. Prepare for some epic riding for contestants.
