New innovations in board technology have completely changed kite racing this year.  Joining us  this week on The Kiteboarder Magazine and live videocast is John Gomes, organizer of the World Nationals in San Francisco in August and Nils Stolzlechner of NJS Designs, whose boards are being used by top racers like Sean Farley, Damien Leroy and Jesse Richman. John will be talking about the upcoming event and Nils will be going over advancements in board design and fin technology. Nils is also developing all kitesurfing fins for Futures Fins Company which will enter the market next year and will share a bit with us about this project.
