One of the industry’s leading kite companies abandons the name and logo upon which they built their legacy in favor of a new moniker: Duotone. With the same innovative team and portfolio of award-winning products, company ringleader, Till Eberle, has little doubt about forging a new and stronger tone.

You can never go back, they say, but when Evan Netsch revisits his semester abroad stomping grounds, he discovers a kiteboarding paradise unchanged, only improved by new tools of his trade.

Known as the encyclopedic resource for all things kiteboarding, Alex Fox is the momentum behind Slingshot’s smooth marketing machine, kicking out witty ads, visually engaging board graphics and headturning product videos. The next generation of industry professional is here and he can do pretty much everything, both on and off the water.

Stationed on the Baltic island of Fehmarn and housed in the cabbage-packing factory of his youth, Core Kiteboarding’s founder Bernie Hiss builds a culture of precision and perfection in the well-known German way.

While few modern kitesurfers know the story of Neil Pryde or the legendary manufacturing company erected under his name, most windsports enthusiasts have used his gear.

Julien Salles takes a team of cold-water operators into the outer reaches of Scotland’s Hebrides archipelago to sample every nook, crag and cranny of the Isle of Lewis and Harris.
