LENS MASTER GALLERY

#08: BRYAN ELKUS

We first started working with Bryan in 2008 when he sent us some fresh and exciting perspectives of the action going on daily in Cape Hatteras. Clearly a top rider himself, it was obvious from the start that he builds up a great rapport with riders, so much so, that he was the official photographer for the 2009 Triple S contest in June, providing fantastic visuals for our report in issue #40.

BILDERBACK VIDEO SERIES

#04: TOM COURT

North's UK all-round ripping representative, Tom Court, is one of the cleanest riders you'll watch. Sliders, kickers, wake-style, old school and strapless in waves, he's got the lot locked down. Here he tells us about shooting in Hawaii with his other half (Susi Mai) and shows some effortlessly clean tricks alongside some funny faces in Bilderback's home studio.

Martin Vari at Kiteworld

MARTIN VARI COMES IN FOR HIS SECOND BIG INTERVIEW WITH KITEWORLD

He's one of the most popular kiters on the planet, changed the face of competition kiteboarding in 2003 and has three world championship titles. Hailed as an inspiration to many of today's top pros and revered as an awesome 'machine' to compete against by his fellow competitors of a few years ago, Martin stopped in at Kiteworld during the UK leg of his European tour with his lovely girlfriend, Sylvenia.

Triple-S Contest

TRIPLE-S 2009

The Triple-S contest took place in Cape Hatteras in June and is seen by many as the ultimate freeride contest. Triple-S stands for 'surf', 'slicks' and 'sliders' - watch four video session reports by clicking the link below - featuring Hadlow, Lenten, Slezak and more...including Brandon Scheid, the story of the event - who took second place overall. Never heard of him? Look out for the hero of Hatteras with two features in issue #40 and in these videos on the Liquid Force gear.

Hadlow's holiday video

HADLOW'S HOLIDAY VIDEO REVEALED

Unfortunately we didn't catch the world champion on the sauce letting it all hang out with a load of slappers though. We call it a 'holiday', he, no doubt, calls it a 'training trip'. Either way, the action his mate Neal Hilder got of him tricking in Lagos, Portugal is hot as you like. PKRA Fuerteventura contestants, watch out next round.

All At Sea

ALL AT SEA COLUMN - BEST ODYSSEY DIARIES

Gavin McClurg, Captain of Discovery - the boat that runs the Best Odyssey global adventures - started a regular diary column in Kiteworld issue #39. In issue #40, he tells us of the first time he welcomed Shannon Best onboard and, although all turned out well in the end, they didn't get off to the best start. This is the video they made on that trip which started out in Antigua. While the white sand beaches and crystal clear waters are pleasing on the eye, it's the sick tricks from Shannon and Clinton Bolton that make this video a must-see.

Issue #40 out now - get it!

ISSUE #40 IS OUT NOW - GET IT!

Another 164 pages of dream weaving material. The cover is already a favourite, but some features are causing controversy with 3 x UK champion, Lewis Crathern, who has strong views on what makes a rider influential. Read it, decide for yourselves and let us know! (Email: jim@kiteworldmag.com) Anyway, click here to see what other funk is in there.

(Look out for a feature with Lewis, looking at the idea of influence in the sport, coming soon.)

THE WRITING'S ON THE WALL

If, like us, you like nothing more than spreading dirty gossip and plastering pictures of yourself and friends everywhere, then find us mixing it up on Facebook and Twitter. Unsure about it all? So are we really, but apparently all the cool kids do it - as you'll see on the homepage of kiteworldmag.com, where we're following some regular twitting riders from the world of kiting.
