Kiting the Strongest Winds of the Season in Cape Town

In January of this year when all the participants of the King of the Air were already in Cape Town to train, there were some of the strongest wind days ever.

Look at what these guys are capable of, risking a lot to make record maneuvers: Josh Emanuel has probably done the biggest loop board off in the history of kitesurfing. Enough words, press play!

Kevin de Smidt Stormchase

“North-West Europe experienced a full gale storm this week. The weather agencies adviced to stay indoors, with winds speeds exceeding 140 km/h, wreaking havoc in the UK and the Netherlands.. But some people just live for these conditions.

Watch how Kevin de Smidt chased the storm around the coast of South-Holland: Through the peak of the storm at the Maasvlakte to the aftermath at Scheveningen, in the search of his moment of silence.”
