I recall hearing that Red Bull pulled out of promoting the King of the Air because kitesurfing had become too mainstream when the Maui event ended. It is good they are behind it again and from the photos, you will have trouble finding another sport that could create such images. I collected images from the Red Bull Content Pool, some off Facebook, youtube and other places and put them together along with some background information in an early writeup of the event yesterday.
Sam Medysky riding for Best out of Canada pops a nice one.
What an excellent event! Someone asked the question if the Maui event might be resurrected, any idea? Such high winds are rare there to my knowledge, still it is a great venue.
