The Tkb editorial team drops another 120-page tomb of unmatched long-form kiteboarding journalism with the release of Vol. 18, No. 4.
On the cover: Photographer Lukas Stiller slows down the shutter and skillfully tracks the action to capture the high-speed motion of Lucas Arsenault’s impressive butter slide.
Inside this winter issue, we dial up Noè Font and learn a thing or two about the casual discipline it takes to be a filmmaker/athlete while Flysurfer’s Marie-Eve Mayrand takes us into the backcountry of the Canadian Rockies and Stig Hoefnagel spills the beans behind the existential hunt for wind in Holland. We head to Sardinia for the formula kite racing event by which all others are measured and dive deep into the outlines of Cabrinha’s new design program. Arthur Guillebert fills us in on last year’s upset and the brave new world in the freestyle tour and Paul Serin talks story of a bare-bones strike mission with the Manera team in the northwest corner of the Spanish Iberian Peninsula.
Profiles include Santa Barbara foil addict Hunter Becker and Aussie hustler Peri Roberts. Janek Grzegorzewski advises us on our first technical kiteloops and iKitesurf Meteorologist Mike Godsey fills us in on the secret to La Ventana’s relentless winter wind patterns. We get the low-down on Slingshot’s new 5-strut big air agro machine and look back at 20 years of Flysurfer culture.
