Come join the TKB crew as we demo the new 2014 gear in Baja! Which kites have the best boost? What brand offers the cleanest control bar? Which one is best for unhooked tricks? What kite has the best low end grunt and wind range?

New for 2014, TKB is offering two test weeks of freeride kites and select freeride boards as well as select test gear for sale (based on availability). Want to review gear and help other riders around the world when it comes time for them to choose new gear? Join us in La Ventana for the January 4-12 Test Week. The La Ventana Test Week is now filled. Try next year!

If you just want to ride the new gear and not be part of an official test filing out forms and analyzing products, join us in Los Barriles for Freeride Week, January 18-26, 2014, with four days of riding until we drop and downwinders followed by the annual Lord of the Wind event. Participation includes VIP passes to event parties.
