Tkb’s Spring 2018 issue hits the presses with a heaping serving of classic kite stories that will put you one step closer to knowing everything one needs to know about the legendary people and places of kiteboarding;

In this issue we interview GKA judge Mallory de la Villemarque about the current state of the Kite-Surf World Tour, tail Sensi Graves on a travel junket to the unknown kiteboarding paradise of Bermuda and follow Jesse Richman, Ewan Jaspan and Paula Rosales as they share the importance of environmental stewardship with the children of Palaui Island. Photographer Justin Bruns tells the tale of traveling to with Damien Leroy, Mark Miedema and Evan Netsch for a kite festival that challenges the strict codes of Saudi culture. We take a tour down under with Colleen Carroll, Craig Cunningham and Noe Font as they road trip down the East Coast of Australian on their Bubble Film tour and we print the pixels of a Great Lakes bird photographer with an infatuation with shooting kiteboarding who has been documenting the burgeoning kitesurfing scene for years.

Balancing riders’ interests against tour sustainability has always been a struggle but the GKA seems to have it dialed. Tkb interviews GKA Kite-Surf World Tour judge Mallory de la Villemarque about the current state of action on this year’s tour.

Sensi Graves joins Laurel Eastman, Therese Taabbel and Melissa Gil on a travel junket to the unknown kiteboarding paradise of Bermuda. Perched off the Atlantic seaboard, they discovered that this tiny island might just be a foilboarder’s paradise.

When the missteps of progress surround an otherwise pristine island off of the northern tip of the Philippines with trash, Jesse Richman, Ewan Jaspan and Paula Rosales step in and engage with the next generation of islanders on the importance of environmental stewardship.

Damien Leroy, Mark Miedema, Evan Netsch and Justin Bruns are invited to a kite festival in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia that challenges the strict codes of Saudi culture.

In the final stretch of their world premier, Colleen Carroll, Noe Font and Craig Cunningham take their Bubble film for one last spin in the land of Fosters and kangaroos while touring the Sunshine Coast in style.

The eastern Great Lakes region is home to a raging confluence of three large bodies of water and a sizeable population of hardy kiteboarders. A bird photographer with a passion for shooting kiteboarding has documented the burgeoning kitesurfing scene for years and finally puts pixels to paper.
