I headed to Marina Crescent yesterday afternoon to enjoy Red Bull Flyday event that kicked-off at 1:00 PM. I ‘d say that over 20,000 were there and just like I expected finding parking spot was Mission:Impossible so I had to park near Hard Rock Cafe and walk; I don’t mind walking anyway.
Red Bull surprised the crowd by bringing Raya Abi Rached to present the show. The weather was extra humid, I was soaking literally but I was enjoying the show; the 29 participating teams had creative ideas with their planes. Design-creativity aside, I laughed my guts out with the dance shows that the teams perform before their flying attempt.
What’s up the Gangnam Style? Most of the teams were dancing to it, like I said before it’s so viral I hate it! The teams were judged by the design creativity, the dance show, and the flying distance.
So guess who won the first place? It’s the Dragon Fly! They’re the same team that won 2010 event after scoring 176 points (a record in Kuwait). They flew for 16 meter and also managed to win the creativity prize, awesome guys.
Lucky for you guys I managed to take and receive many cool shots, so those who missed the event will feel like they were actually there.
Note: I will get post a video tomorrow, stay tuned.
RedBull Flugtag is back in its 3rd version to Kuwait, Flugtag means “Flying Day” in German and yes its all about flying and adventure. I came to know that the event will take place on Friday 19th of October 2012 at Marina Crescent and deadline for registration is June 14, so if you’re into flying then this event is tailored for you.
I attended the event in 2010 and enjoyed what I saw, though I wish they chose a different location for this year.
I thought we only had good break-dancers and Free-Runners in Kuwait but it turned out I’m so wrong, a friend emailed me a cool video for the RedBull street style final show at Marina Mall and the guys were really amazing! Both Karam Humaidani and Abdulwahab Al Oteibi did incredible tricks and moves with the ball that I thought weren’t possible, over 2,000 spectators were dazzled, literally.
The 1st winner, Karam Humaidani, will represent Kuwait in the world championship in Italy on September 2012, congrats and wish him all the luck!
