Seems like the clouds has gathered on the top of the Table, which can be a sign of a windy day to come, most often - lets see what happens now :rollgrin:

they are riding on a different level from last year, can't wait until the wind comes up there is going to be some real sickness this year. For all my complaining about the selection process, I realize now that they have really brought a high level of riders into the event this year. Good job red bull.

Toby, are you there in Cape Town? What do you think of it now the SEaster is finally filling in? Hope you get to do some general riding too, especially a downwinder from Milnerton to Haakgat.

worst commentating ever.

Every loop was a megaloop (not)
15m jumps (highest was a freak 13m)
Name drop galore.. " when I was training for the king of the air " "when I was training with Aaron" "that time God gave me a high five" etc.

I know the job of the commentator is to hype the crowed but these guys were fucking terrible.

also no one seems to know how Billy won his heat, I bet even he is surprised.

Don't even get me started on the camera work and production .

they ran it in super marginal conditions out of desperation it seems.

Apart from that I enjoyed it.

:P
