If you’re looking at upping your quiver this coming season then this issue is a must-read!
You’ll find out what’s hot in the world of competition including last month’s first GKA Kite-Surf World Tour stop of 2018 in Cape Verde where team Kiteworld was on the scene. KW also lifts the lid on the new World Tour that’s coming to town – the GKA Kiteboarding Big Air World Tour – which is promising to shake up the twintip world this summer.
We get to know Evan Netsch, a pro rider who’s still very much in this sport for the love of it, and Sensi Graves and KW associate editor Matt Pearce give us some tips on upping our mental game for improved on-water performance.
To top it off, we follow the Naish team on a trip to the Philippines as they shoot their latest 2018 gear in some rarely-kited dream spots!
There’s cutting edge insight from our regular columnist Mark Shinn about what’s happening in the world of kiting as well as local news from around the globe and technique articles to help you add some new moves to your trick bag as the kite season approaches.
