Between the flaps, Reo Stevens and Martin Vari unveil a long-held secret wave locked into preservation. We reveal the unstoppable force behind Matchu Lopes, converse with Théo de Ramecourt about the international racing scene and tail Ewan Jaspan as he squeezes through the Covid lockdown borders in Victoria, Australia to find kiteboarding escapism farther north. We lift the Cabrinha curtain to discover a learner more defined organization and follow Matthias Larsen as he explores the cross-cultural connections between kiteboarding and buddhism.
Profiles include West Coast ripper Michelle Gabriel and F-One’s Matt Maxwell. Steven Akkersdijk fills us in on how to go around the world on a foil, Pablo Martin explains how he went from freakin’ out to foilin’ freak and we pay tribute to 20 years of Liquid Force Kiteboarding.
Drop in and dive deep into 120 pages of real kite journalism and the imagery to back it up.
