Taking place all weekend at Big Bay in Bloubergstrand, Red Bull King of the Air 2018 brings some of the best kitesurfing action to the Cape in a festival running from 27 January to 11 February 2018. Here’s what the website says about this event: “It’s is all about the amplitude as contestants go head-to-head in a “flag out” competition format. During the two-week weather window, riders will only face-off in the perfect conditions – when the legendary Cape Doctor is at its epic best, punching out consistent wind speeds of over 30 knots and providing the perfect swell from which to boost some extreme maneuvers.” Head down to Kite Beach, Big Bay, to watch the action unfold. It’s free to watch. Afterwards, head on down to the Blue Peter to enjoy lunch or a sundowner.
And that concludes our weekend round-up for this coming weekend. For more ideas on where to find the best things to do this weekend in Cape Town, be sure to follow our blog or connect on Facebook to get the latest updates in real time.
