Britain's Aaron Hadlow claimed the Red Bull King of the Air 2015 title on 15 February, 2015, after a week-long wait for the unseasonably absent 'Cape Doctor'.
Cape Town's Big Bay was the venue where 24 of the world's best big air kiteboarders hit the water and the skies in front of crowds on the beach.
Hadlow was solid and consistent throughout the competition and easily had the performance of the day, landing two massive megaloop KGBs twice during Sunday's semis and finals to claim the top spot on the podium. This intricate move entails completing a back-roll megaloop, then unhooking and passing the bar behind your back.
"I'm feeling real good, what an event. We waited all this time and we finally got the conditions we really want out here today," said an elated Hadlow after the event.
"For me, I've never had this title, I've had many other ones but this is the one that's always deceived me, I've never ended up with it. To go out there, here in Cape Town as well, a place where I come every year, I know the conditions, I know I had a good chance but you never know how it's going to go. Once I went out there I was just full of adrenaline and managed to pull some pretty sick moves so I'm really happy right now."
The Dutch pair of Kevin Langeree and Jerrie van de Kop finished in second and third places respectively.
