Jacobsen stuns the stars to take King of the Air title

Up, up and away at Big Bay in South Africa, where the world’s best kitesurfers have been taking to the air in the blue ribbon King of the Air event.

With the Cape Doctor to fill their sails stars like British defending champion Aaron Hadlow and Rueben Lenten vied to see who could leap the highest or pull the most stunts.

But the big names were put in the shade by Nick Jacobsen, who won for the first time ever. What a title to win for your first-ever tournament victory.

Mystic Best Move prize went to local kitesurfer Oswald Smith, while another Briton Lewis Crathern took the Biggest Boost award with a near 20-metre leap.
