Podcast #95:  This week, we are doing things a bit differently! We have two special guests joining us for the ASNews.net and The Kiteboarder Magazine podcast. Bay Area kiteboarder Jeff Kafka will join us live Thursday night to talk to us and answer any questions you might have about his experience kitesurfing at Maverick’s – a day he has been anticipating for over four years and a day he will never forget!  Filmmaker Morten Gjerstad will also be joining us for a pre-recorded show to tell us about his newest snowkiting film, Something Stronger.   

Got a question for Jeff? He will be available to answer your question LIVE and REAL TIME on this Thursday’s The Kiteboarder Magazine/ASNews.net live podcast. 

If you can’t make the live interview, post your questions here and we will ask them for you! ALSO, POST YOUR QUESTIONS HERE FOR MORTEN AND WE WILL ASK HIM YOUR QUESTIONS TOO! The deadline to post questions is 3pm PST, Thursday November 8. You can then download the podcast anytime after Friday night and listen to the show at your convenience at www.kiteforum.tv, www.thekiteboarder.com, and www.asnews.net. You can also subscribe to the feed at Itunes and get notified of podcast shows, videos and PDF versions of the magazine as soon as they’re posted online!
