YOU GOTTA GO THERE TO COME BACK
It seems you always come back stronger, even after just a short kite trip; you're somehow more balanced, the mind is in better order, free of debris.
This issue we have tales of incredible adventure in San Blas and French Polynesia, plus the isolation of Kenya, the reliability of Marsa Alam in Egypt and more. Plus we have our indepth northern Brazil ride guide after compiling our very own analysis of a collection of spots that you really should know about before booking your trip, from Paracuru all the way up to Barra Grande. Barra where? Oh you just wait ? we will reveal an absolute gem that few in the kiting world seem to know about. We've given it a good sampling, ridden the donkeys, eaten the fish, ripped the flat waters and tasted the beer... all in the name of research. There will be info on conditions at each spot, location info, how to get there, where to stay and colourful images and descriptions... not that these spots need the 'big sell'.
You'll also find our 2014 twin-tip buyer's guide laid out in this issue, with sections on kite/cable cross-over models as well as details on the split boards.
Elsewhere our team of acclaimed columnists are back with their unrivalled mix of kiting intellect and banter, including the importance of kite control, getting closer to God and a breakdown of the different types of pop - do you know the difference? As usual we hand pick the finest shots from the stacks of submissions we get from the sport's top photographers for your optic enjoyment.
