Red Bull Megaloop Challenge: getting high is always good

The 16 kiteboarders that will compete at the Red Bull Megaloop Challenge 2014 have been announced.

The extreme kiteboarding event will gather those who fly high. The Red Bull Megaloop Challenge 2014 will run between 15th May and 15th November, in the best possible wind conditions.

In the last 30 days, riders from all corners of the Netherlands submitted their videos. The organization picked the best flyers.

"First of all, thanks for all the entries. There were very good candidates. It will be a real show, and I am glad we can push the sport as hard as you can," explains Ruben Lenten.

"Make sure you are well trained to be fit, and make sure your equipment is in order. Now, let's wait for the right conditions with 30 knots of wind and, hopefully, beautiful waves."

The Red Bull Megaloop Challenge 2014 will be contested in Zandvoort.
