What’s in Their Bags?

GKA pros talk tech on their kitesurf setups

An athlete has to be prepared for all conditions when coming into competition, that’s why the GKA created the “In the bag” series, where riders empty out their boardbags, go through their favorite set-ups and show us what they travel with.
