Dutchman Ruben Lenten, advisor in the Sports Committee explains: “Extreme big air kiteboarding is definitely progressing, and fast. We’re seeing huge tricks being thrown with S-loops, double megaloops and short line loops. There is a new, upcoming generation that has clearly proven they’re ready for their first Red Bull Megaloop. Let’s hope that Mother Nature brings us the right conditions this year, so we can all enjoy the insanely high level of riding and flying at this great event.”
To complete the riders list of 16, the other 6 additional invites will be handed out to the best submissions of the Red Bull Megaloop Qualifier series. All riders can submit their video to impress the judges and show their skills. The committee will be judging the videos on extremity, execution, and flow. Videos can be submitted until March 15th on www.redbull.nl/megaloop.
Red Bull Megaloop will take place at the Spot, Zandvoort Beach, the Netherlands, between April 1st and November 1st when the right storm hits the Netherlands. That means at least a steady 35 knots from South West or South / South West for at least 5 hours.
