surfing leads the way again

Over in surfing, the World Surf League very recently announced that they will be awarding equal prize money for men and women at every WSL controlled event from 2019 onwards, making them the first US global sports league to do so. Two days later, also in the USA, the Patagonia Cape Hatteras Wave Classic, a kitesurfing wave contest that runs in September, also announced equal pay cheques for their annual event. On page 138 Sensi Graves reflects the often heated and many sided argument as to why it is that women in kiteboarding are fewer in number and also (some would say ‘therefore’) paid much less in prize money and sponsorship than most of their male counterparts. The main reason for the pay gap is often indeed related to the fact that…

CABRINHA Cabrinha’s full 2019 collection is out now with some exciting new products entering the line alongside classic kites like the Switchblade, Drifter and FX; all of which have been tweaked and re-engineered for the upcoming season. Two new boards feature in the surfboard range - the Cutlass and the X:Breed (which also comes as a ‘combo’ board for foiling or wave riding without the foil) while Cab have also expanded their foil line to include two separate set-ups to suit foilers of different levels. Additionally, there’s the brand new H20 straps and pads as well as a totally new kite for multi-discipline freeriding - the Moto! Cab’s formidable twin-tip range also returns for 2019 with everything from entry level boards, like the Spectrum, through to all-out wakestyle and performance freeride…

most wanted: extra the rise of the all-rounder

PEOPLE WANT TO DO OTHER STUFF Ten years ago, unhooked PKRA-style freestyle was the zenith for many riders and owning C-kites was a way of showing the world that you were an advanced rider (which is why I bought some before I could even unhook!). While technical handle-passes are still a goal for many, a lot of people just want to go bigger than they’ve gone before, perhaps learn kite loops and generally enjoy a user-friendly experience along the way. If they can afford it, many riders are often happy to own more than one board (e.g, a twinny, a surfboard and perhaps a foil) but they don’t always want to have two different kite styles in their quiver because it’s a big expense and, thanks to all-rounders, not always necessary. We…

brazilians claim the first ‘gka air games’ world championships

“JESSE’S OVERALL IMPRESSION SCORE OF 4.7 OUT OF 5 WAS SECOND ONLY TO HIS PREVIOUS HEAT SCORE OF 4.8. HE WAS NEARING AIR GAMES PERFECTION.” DELIVERANCE AT DAWN Even when all the championship riding was done, Carlos Mario and Jesse Richman had to be split from an equal points finish on countback results, while Mikaili was only assured of a clear win after beating her season-long rival Hannah Whiteley in the single elimination final at the last event in Germany. This first ‘Air Games’ season was a real test for all involved. A new format aimed to re-invigorate the twin-tip freestyle scene and attract more general fans. New school, old school, big air and kite loops all in one contest – it had the backing of the industry and some of the biggest…

gka kite-surf world tour poised for final push

The 2018 season has allowed the reigning champion to play to his strengths so far with the first event going down at his home break of Ponta Preta in Cape Verde and then three of the following four events were judged purely on strapless freestyle – an area in which he’s dominant. Airton also set a new strapless hang-time record at the Sotavento event of 14.5 seconds (and very nearly set another one after almost 20 seconds of air time!). He’s not 100% bulletproof of course, as current tour number two Matchu Lopes proved when he beat Airton with the first ever triple front roll landed in competition in their final heat together in Viana do Castelo, Portugal. In fact, Matchu is perhaps the only rider who can mount a real…

kite park league: patagonia hood jam

Come the finals it was clear that Brandon, Sam Light and Ewan were the ones to watch. However, Hood River hometown-hero Brandon used his local knowledge to overcome Sam Light and Ewan Jaspan with a blinding display, including a mobe 720 off the kicker, but his victory was a tight one - there were just 0.03 points between him and Ewan in second. In the women’s, Karolina’s all-out approach helped her edge past Julia Castro who notched up the highest scoring trick of the event with a backside one to 360 out on the Cabrinha slider to corrugated pipe, while relative newcomer Katie Potter pushed past some seriously experienced competitors to take third place. Brandon and Karolina still hold the tour leads going into the last event of the year in Icapui,…
