Tkb’s summer 2018 issue is dropping into subscriber mailboxes everywhere. On the cover Eric Rienstra seamlessly crosses between the roles of professional athlete, event judge and kite brand rep while relentlessly pushing the progression of park riding.
In this issue we follow Gabi Steindl through the ups and downs of a kitesurf mission to Matanzas, Chile, explore Northeast Brazil’s carefully curated multi-day downwinders courtesy of Surfin Sem Fim and follow Blake Olsen to New Orleans where he discovers kite spots in the least likely of places. We interview Big Wave Surfing World Champion and kitesurfer, Grant ‘Twiggy’ Baker about the transition from kitesurfing to big wave surfing and foilsurfing, tail Emily Reich and Evan Netsch to Puerto Rico just nine months after Hurricane Maria and follow Jerrie van de Kop on a massive wind-assisted voyage to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro in the name of climate change awareness.
Tkb’s 2018 summer issue, Vol. 15, No. 2 is available in coffee table print or through the convenience of your digital device.
