Tkb’s Spring 2019 issue unleashes the latest eye-popping imagery and mind-blowing classic kite stories into 120 pages of printed kitesurf escapism.
On the cover, photographer Andre Magarao captures the unstoppable Carlos ‘Bebe’ Mario dominating the night session with amplitude and style in the slack water of Brazil.
In this issue Reo Stevens finds kitesurf paradise in the Marshall Islands, we go behind the lines of Cabrinha to get the backstory on their graphic designer and fine arts painter Patrick Dunne and Gabi Steindl takes us on an expedition to the Solomon Islands. Then Naish’s kite division leader and head designer Damien Girardin fills us in on the state of kite design, the F-One team returns to Madagascar after 10 years to survey the terrain anew and we send our most introverted staff member to Brazil to pen an introspective article on the group dynamics and team spirit of logistics-based kite travel.
