Straps versus boots = straps in the lead so far...and the best performance of the day by Aaron who went for both!

Too bad there isn't a replay, I only saw half.. Does someone know when there will be a replay available?

The level is a lot higher than last year!

Too bad they didn’t show the Kite during Aaron’s Boardoff Megaloop.

Doing it with a rotation is really high level.
Hoping someone filmed it with the Kite on it.

Antonin did a Megaloop Late Boardoff Board Spin.

Late, because he finished his Megaloop first, and then took the Boardoff.

Aaron and Kevin did the Megaloop with the board off.

Nice variation! Looking forward to see more !

Yes, finally. Took way too long!
But I am so happy today that finally that step has been taken!
More to come! There is so much more possible!

You can watch it on demand on Red Bull TV here: https://www.redbull.tv/live/AP-1U1TZN5Z ... of-the-air

Conditions tomorrow (Sunday, 28 Jan) are not favourable to complete the competition. We're likely to get the call for early next week but, as always, I will keep you updated as soon as we have the call.
