Dirty Habits: Episode 1, the Cape Town Halloween Kite Jam

Episode 1 of Dirty Habits sees the boys getting off to a great start, despite less than ideal wind conditions for the first annual Halloween Kite Jam and Downwinder. Kitesurfing has never looked so much fun…

Cape Town has been a favourite winter destination for kitesurfers for a number of years now, and while part of the appeal is the super consistent powerful wind, a growing part of it is the incredible scene of kitesurfers looking for a good time. If you want to train hard and play hard, Cape Town is almost certainly the best place to go from November – March. The Halloween Kite Jam and Downwinder is just one more reason to go.

The event looks like a whole heap of fun, and there’s a pretty impressive roster of pro riders who, it turns out, are super keen to dress up in drag and make fun of themselves. I suppose it’s easy to laugh at yourself when you’re one of the best kitesurfers on the planet. Personal highlight – HUGE board off to beach landing at 1:29!

We spotted these guys shredding and cross dressing, let us know if you see any more!
