King of the Air gets under way

The first two rounds of Red Bull King of the Air ran in 30-knot south-easterly winds at Kite Beach on Wednesday November 29. This is the 11th running of the event known globally as the pinnacle of the Big Air Kitesurfing discipline. The event window runs until Sunday December 10 and will only be finished when conditions are perfect (a gale force south-easter and good swell).
