We love Red Bull events, don’t we?

Red Bull King of the Air 2019 kitesurf competition that is. And since it’s happening right down the road from me I went there this morning after gym. But when I got to Kite Beach …

And that one was a beginner’s kite, used by a rookie and her instructor.

Apart from that only the usual beach riff raff, sunbathers, hikers and lotsa doggos.

But then I found this container which is obviously the event’s office and observation space for the judges.

Hm, obviously I was there much too early to watch any real sporty action. But I wanted to go home and get some breakfast, so no exciting kiting photos from this failed reporter. If I wasn’t the editrix I’d fire myself from Thar She Blows! For realsies. :/

Spoils of war
It’s over now and I missed it. 😦

Maybe a video will show up here:
