The test team headed out to Cape Town for their winter testing sessions and the first of their test features appears in issue #56. 'C Kite City' breaks down a handful of the latest modern C kites, featuring analysis of the Slingshot Fuel, Airush Razor, Best GP, Ozone C4, Blade Prime, Nobile Fifty50 and RRD Obsession Pro.
Gavin and Jody have been at sea on the Best Odyssey for five years. They provided some thrilling regular columns over the last couple of years in the magazine with tales of wild ocean adventure, chasing the most remote kiting conditions. That particular five year odyssey ended recently and they produced a breathtaking summary of a wild half decade transporting a lucky few kiters to the most beautiful corners of the world. Find it in issue #56.
Mark Glendinning took a journey to an equally out there place ? the Cocos Islands in the Indian Ocean off the West Coast of Australia. The Live The Dream theme is strong with this feature, but sometimes you've got to dig deep into that travel budget and you'll always think it's been worthwhile. Someone who did dig deep recently was Nicollo Porcella who's been charging at Jaws. Read his account in the new issue.
We also report from the front line of the first Len10 Mega Loop Challenge in Cape Town and break down a sweet little move that's much more with your grasp than you may imagine ? the front roll kite loop transition.
All that plus lots more of the usual good Kiteworld juice to ignite your early season fires.
