the spin cycle

What is it about influence? We’re all under it to some degree, whether we like to admit it or not. For many the trigger is the ‘sun passing the yard arm’, while others ‘just wanna be like Mike.’ Booze and basketball analogies aside, I’m serious. Why did it take me standing on the beach at the GKA Kiteboarding World Tour Air Games to suddenly be inspired to go out and mess about with a mate trying one footers and double spins for the first time in ages? The conditions in Tarifa hadn’t been the most epic for the first heats on this new world tour that aims to put the ‘show’ back into professional competition, but they were the sort of conditions that most of us are regularly faced with. 15 –…

AIRUSH The Ultra V2 is one of the lightest SLEs out there, making it an ideal choice for any regular travellers or riding in light summer winds. Thanks to its one-strut canopy, the Ultra V2 starts at less than two kilos in the smallest sizes and Airush saved even more weight by reworking the bridle attachment points. The bigger sizes now sit further forward in the window for upwind performance while the smaller sizes are designed to remain stable in punchier conditions. This isn’t just a light wind machine by any stretch - it’s fast and responsive enough to be ridden in waves and has plenty of lift for freeride twin-tip riding. But in particular the Ultra V2 is particularly special when used for foiling! SIZES: 17, 14, 12, 10, 9,…

jesse richman and mikaili sol set the new air games standard in tarifa

“COACH FABIO INGROSSO SAID, “I TOLD MIKAILI, ‘YOU’RE ONLY 13, YOU HAVE NOTHING TO PROVE, BUT IF WE GET A TOP FOUR FINISH THEN THAT’S ALREADY FANTASTIC.’ WE PRACTICE THIS SORT OF GAME OF KITE DURING TRAINING WHEN I TELL THEM TO GO OUT AND DO BIG SPINS, SO SHE REALLY ENJOYED THIS EVENT.” JEEP TARIFA PRO: 26TH JUNE – 1ST JULY The GKA Kiteboarding World Tour ‘Air Games’ hasn’t had the easiest start since inception this year. The first event at the Mondial du Vent in Leucate had no wind; the first time that event at that spot in France hasn’t had wind in 20 years! At the end of June Tarifa kept us waiting until the sixth and final day of the Jeep Tarifa Pro to truly deliver for the…

gka kite-surf world tour news

Rolling regularly now, the KSWT rounds come thick and fast through the summer and since last issue two events have rattled by with another certain event happening in late July at the annual World Cup round, staged annually at the Rene Egli centre at Sotavento in Fuerteventura. In round three at Viana do Castelo in Portugal, 2016 Champion Matchu Lopes finally found his riding flow again, landing an inspired strapless triple-front roll in the final (the first time one has been landed in competition) against tour leader and friendly rival, Airton Cozzolino. Having won the first two events of the season, and looking unstoppable ahead of Portugal, Airton struck back at round four in Tarifa, where he now remains undefeated in four years – his two unhooked handle-passes making the difference in…

parlier pounces at the hfpt san francisco!

The beauty of foil racing is that it doesn’t take a lot of wind to get an event off the ground. Last year events ran in winds as little as eight knots, but in June, when the Hydrofoil Pro tour hit San Francisco, conditions were gnarly from the off! Defending HFPT champion Nico Parlier struck hard on day one, taking five bullets (race wins) - a stellar start to his event after a challenging season so far in which the Bridge brothers have won both the previous events (Olly claiming La Ventana and Guy following up with victory in Montpellier). The wind got stronger and gustier on day two and Parlier took a heavy slam as he rounded the first mark, losing ten places in the process but somehow clawed his…

five fairly fascinating facts

1. In case you’ve been living under a rock North Kiteboarding have officially changed their name to Duotone! Read an interview with boss Till Eberle now on page 060. 2. Laird Hamilton is credited with being one of the pioneers of surf foiling, but Darian Smith, a legend of the early days on Maui, was the first person to kite on one. Those early foilers attached themselves to their boards with snowboard bindings! Imagine trying to get out of that if you stacked it at high speed! 3. In November, the International Olympic Commission will confirm 100% whether or not kiting is going to the Olympics. Nobody’s totally clear yet on what the format might be, but given that the IOC requires all sailing events to be able to take place in…
