What does kiteboarding mean to you? To some it’s simply an escape from work, for others it’s a transforming experience that leads to rearranging their entire life. Wherever on the scale you fit, you’re bonded to the tribe.Next issue is our 100 . We’ve seen many ground breaking changes in the sport and since 2002 we’ve witnessed several generations take their grip on a style or direction and have their time in the spotlight.I was recently in France for the first round of the newly unified GKA Kite World Tour’s Freestyle World Cup event in Leucate. This year will see a combination of predominantly pure freestyle (read: unhooked trick) based events, but with some high-wind ‘open discipline’ stops, such as round two in June at Vargas in Gran Canaria,…

GKA FREESTYLE WORLD CUP LEUCATE Taking her first event win, Francesca Bagnoli from Italy, while Carlos Mario dealt another killer blow to his chasing pack, for yet another win FRANCE: 20 - 25TH APRIL Brazilian dynamo Carlos Mario and Francesca Bagnoli from Italy got their seasons off to a flyer in April at the opening GKA Freestyle World Cup fixture of 2019 - the Mondial du Vent in Leucate, France. Last year’s event was a false start for the GKA tour with no wind at all and similar conditions prevailed for the first few days in Leucate this year, with the event site becalmed.The wind suddenly arrived on day four. To make better use of the southerly wind direction, the event was moved to…

In truth 99.9% of kiteboarders, no matter which discipline…

kiting quietens the mind -therapy for all

Rogue Founders. Left to right: Derek McCann, Ryan Murphy and Edward Monk Some say that through kiting they find their ‘flow’, or a kind of meditation. For others it has literally become a lifeline. Three Canadian military veterans who had difficulties transitioning to civilian life after service found that kitesurfing was an incredible tool to assist them in troubling times. Through their discovery they’ve set up a nonprofit, the Rogue Adventure Group.Founders Edward Monk, Derek McCann and Ryan Murphy all have unique and extensive military experience. They were deployed to Afghanistan on combat operations that resulted in an extremely deadly tour for Canadian Forces. In the seven months that they were there, three close fellow Combat Engineers lost their lives, amongst others. They not only struggled to deal with…
