Coming up in issue #59 we test a handful of the earliest releases for 2013, including the Airush Lithium, North Rebel, Best Kahoona and Woodboard's 136 model.
We take a trip to Los Barrilles and discover a kiting mecca in Mexico. Elsewhere we meet a kiter with one arm and one leg who regularly rips in Israel, we meet the man with the coldest job in kiting and we take a look at the peak of high performance surfing with a kite, featuring expert commentary from the discipline's best riders, photographer Jason Wolcott and we assess just how much we've caught up with the latest rippers in the world of surfing.
Issue #59 will be out in September when lots of you will be thinking about new surfboards, so we also have our almost annual surfboard guide and lots of indispensable technique tips.
Plus all your favourite regulars, including the second column from Aaron Hadlow and more boosting tips in Warning: Oxygen Mask May Be Required.
