For the ninth year in the row, Tkb conducted the largest and longest standing consumer review gear test in the kiteboarding industry. With an army of testers and the biggest arsenal of products, the Tkb Freeride Gear Review team put over 120 products through the gear review wringer with comprehensive analysis from an obsessive team that reflects rider experience from industry insiders to retail experts and most importantly, the end-user/consumer. With the help of our testers from all walks of kiteboarding, Tkb’s staff assembled detailed gear reviews with objective performance criteria of the latest 2020 kites, twin tips, surfboards, foil boards, foils, light wind-specific and wingsurf-specific gear all packed into one neat and tidy 300+ page digital package
