Do you believe you're a big air kiteboarding specialist? Submit your best video and win a ticket to the main event of the Red Bull King of the Air 2016, to be held between 30th January and 14th February, in Cape Town, South Africa.

Riders willing to compete in one of the best extreme air competitions in the planet should send their footage until 11th December 2015. There are eight spots available. The event will feature 24 kiteboarders.

"We want a short edit packed with plenty of extreme action! It does not need to be a masterpiece - all we need is to clearly see the potential of the rider," explains Sergio Cantagalli, director of the Red Bull King of the Air.

In one minute, you're invited to display high jumps and combinations of maneuvers. Judges want innovation, risk, power and variety. Add different angles, and show your cleanest landings.

Jesse Richman (2013), Kevin Langeree (2014), and Aaron Hadlow (2015) have already won the Red Bull King of the Air. You could be the next champion, so grab a camera and submit your hottest video.

"It's incredible to see how many people around the world know about it and follow the event. It's extreme and a discipline that everybody wants to see pushed to the limit," adds Aaron Hadlow.
