white knuckle rides

Commitment is relative. Seen employed at its most extreme, we find it hard to look away, even if it is through the gaps between our fingers. Equally, just committing to learn to kitesurf is a massive step for most of us, and can be no less exciting (and occasionally harrowing) of course.2019 has already delivered incredible action, through both the King of the Air and the GKA Kite-Surf World Cup Cape Verde – the first event of the GKA’s Kite World Tour season that saw the world’s best wave riders put on a magnificent show. All eventually had to bow to the barrel hunting prowess of Mitu Monteiro, the maestro of the wave at Punta Preta. We have sensational images and comments from both events this issue. KOTA on…

Kevin – supreme at height “NEVER IN MY LIFE HAVE I SEEN RIDERS GOING SO HIGH AND MORE IMPRESSIVELY COVERING SO MUCH DISTANCE DOWNWIND.” By winning, Kevin became the first male* rider to claim a hat-trick of King of the Air wins. He was tied with long-time rival Aaron Hadlow on two wins each prior to this event, who sadly had to retire with an awkward rib injury sustained during a relatively innocuous looking landing during the event. No doubt Hadlow will be back! (*Susi Mai claimed three Queen of the Air titles when the original event ran on Maui back in the early 2000s) I would normally be writing this piece from the depths of winter, where a motivational piece is needed to wake riders…
