This year’s King of the Air was a tough one for Joshua Emanuel – Watch this, as he takes us behind the scenes of what happened.
Three weeks before the event, Josh had a pretty bad crash where he fractured the cartilage in his 7th rib. He was determined to do everything in his power to make sure he could ride, in what is the biggest event in kiteboarding! He had laser treatment every day for the first week, then every second day which was meant to speed up the recovery process. As he was getting closer to the event, he still wasn’t 100% sure that he would ride, it was touch and go. The day before the event, he felt a lot better and was confident he could give it a decent shot. Watch this!
