Marc: "For Red Bull King of the Air this year. I'm definitely in a better head space mentally and physically. Last year, I never got into the flow state as I did in 2021 when I won. I'm looking at doing everything possible to find the flow again for this year and perform my best."

Josue San: "It's been a dream being in King of the Air. I think all athletes, when they start kitesurfing, it's a dream for them. And for a little Brazilian, who doesn't give up and keeps on training - I just can't believe it. I'm just so grateful."
