Kiteworld International magazine was launched in 2002 and continues to build on its reputation as the only truly worldwide kiteboarding magazine. Twice a year Kiteworld comes super-charged with articles, breathtaking photography, gripping stories, reviews and news on the latest kit.
Subscribers to the digital edition have access to a growing pile of back issues.
This issue we′ve focussed on people, moments and journeys.
On page 14 you can read about Dave Kay′s recent 20th anniversary kite session in which he designed all his own gear and also learn about the kite design programme he′s launched online that could help you start to do the same.
Female product managers are a rare thing in kiteboarding. On page 70 Duotone′s Elsa Berger reveals more positivity in the industry pipeline other than just her own presence in what has, up to now, been very much a man′s design world.
Four years from now we′ll know which relay team won kitesurfing′s first full Olympic Gold medal. The race is on. We go behind the scenes, on and off the track, from page 40.
