Last week the first autumn storm hit the Dutch coast and the authorities gave out weather warning code orange. Where this sever storm caused people to stay home safe from falling trees, huge traffic jams and a faltering public transport system, it was time for another edition of the RedBull Megaloop Challenge.
16 of the worlds most radical kiteboarders gathered on the beach of Zandvoort to fight out an epic battle against some of the roughest conditions the North sea has to offer.
With about 5000 fans out on the beach the competitors threw down an awesome show boosting some sick megaloops in windspeeds up to 100kmh.
Peter Lynn Kiteboarding teamriders Time Rietveld and Gijs Wassenaar were playing a home game and showed off what the Escape V6 is capable of in expert hands, both advancing to the semi finals.
