In 2009, Naish team rider Kevin Langeree made a promise to his mother and this year, he made that promise come true. After 10 years competing on the PKRA Freestyle Tour and earning the 2009 World Champion Title, there was only one thing left to do. Win the Red Bull King of the Air competition.

Kevin combined variety, quality, and good style with elements of extreme to claim this year’s crown, and stay true to his mother.

High-fives, Langeree. High-fives.
