Between the flaps of Tkb Vol. 18, No. 1, Brandon Scheid tags along on an all girls snowkiting weekend and is generously gifted with the dump of the decade, Duotone’s Aaron Hadlow and Ralf Grösel escape a Cape Town lockdown and take the long way to Luderitz in search of consistent conditions for some essential R&D testing and we get the inside details on Naish’s father son duo Des and Tim Walsh. We catch up with Core’s Foil Designer Jan Termöhlen who unveils all the intricacies of Core’s new SLC platform, Cabrinha’s Marketing Manager James Boulding pens an essay on his fondness for the photoshoot and we follow Chris Bobryk as he flees Miami’s crowded beaches and takes us a mile out to the shallow sandbars of Stiltsville.
Profiles include Hatteras Bowls’ Gage Fichter and Cabo Verdean up and comer Hendrick Lopes. Marie-Eve Mayrand fills us in on how to ascend uphill, Ewan Jaspan explains a new era of bar innovation and we follow Eleveight’s Peter Stiewe on his path of design.
