This Week:

Major advances were made this year in board design for kite racing, as exhibited by the number of prototypes and custom boards at the 2008 US Nationals in San Francisco. Interest in kite racing has taken off, so much that rumor has it that North is planning on releasing a race-specific production board in 2009. This week on The Kiteboarder Magazine and the ASnews.net podcast, we are pleased to welcome avid racers Nils Stolzechner of NJS Design, whose boards were used by many competitors at the nationals, along with Chip Wasson, one of kiteboarding’s first pros and founder of Ultra Nectar clothing, who has been experimenting with foilboards and a variety of custom directional boards for racing.
