Best Male Kitesurfer of 2018

Kevin Langeree needs no introduction, the only man on the planet to win the Red Bull King Of The Air three times he totally dominated the skies at this years event. These days it’s the only competition Kevin pushes himself for and his training certainly pays off. He went high and further than everyone else in the event, however it’s not just the KOTA that defines Kevin. His weekly Vlogs have been a huge hit with our readers and arguably that’s why a lot of you gave him your vote. Congratulations on winning this one Kevin, we hope there is room in the trophy cabinet for it!
