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 page…

“NEVER IN MY LIFE HAVE I SEEN RIDERS GOING SO HIGH AND MORE IMPRESSIVELY COVERING SO MUCH DISTANCE DOWNWIND.” I would normally be writing this piece from the depths of winter, where a motivational piece is needed to wake riders up and prepare them for the up-coming Northern Hemisphere season. Not for the first time, Mother Nature has blindsided me. I’m unsure how often we can call weather “un-seasonable” before we realise that our concept of applicable weather per season is seriously misguided, but few people will argue that this year has been a little bit odd. Most of Europe seemed to skip directly from autumn to spring – a concept that I generally endorse – and even if the weather now suddenly takes a turn for the worse, it has been…
