North Brand Director Mike Raper: “Once again, we are incredibly proud to be the unwavering sponsor of this premier event. We believe in Big Air more than ever before, and we love to follow the athletes as they push the boundaries of what is possible. We are extremely excited to let the drama unfold and see who will ultimately take out the title. Bring it on.”
Representing North in 2023 are the 2021 King, Marc Jacobs (New Zealand), Luca Ceruti (South Africa), Cohan Van Dijk (Netherlands) and Next Gen rider Jose San Carreira.
Marc: “For Red Bull King of the Air this year. I’m definitely in a better head space mentally and physically. Last year, I never got into the flow state as I did in 2021 when I won. I’m looking at doing everything possible to find the flow again for this year and perform my best.”
Luca: “For the past 2 months, I’ve had KOTA as my focus. I have been working super closely with my coach, Ruan, to push my mind and body to levels I never thought possible. This is going to be a fun event.”
Cohan: “It feels amazing planning towards an event like Red Bull King of the Air. Cape Town is my favourite place, and that really shows off my riding. I’m planning to push it a little more this year!”
Josue San: “It’s been a dream being in King of the Air. I think all athletes, when they start kitesurfing, it’s a dream for them. And for a little Brazilian, who doesn’t give up and keeps on training – I just can’t believe it. I’m just so grateful.”
