ISSUE #38 HITS THE SHELVES!
"Welcome to Oahu; a place where your resume doesn't count, magazine cheques are not accepted and sponsors' credit cards are declined. In God we trust, all others pay cash." JEFF PFEFFER, AIRUSH SHAPER AND PHOTOGRAPHER
"We fend off the crowds, we pay the high prices, we dodge the wide sets and we try not to get beat up.... We find our dreams, fears and each other along the way, hopefully, humbly. We build up stories our kids probably won't believe. We look to the next set of storms, the next opportunity and we try to be ready. We work on our weaknesses and steel ourselves for the next big test - and we know it's coming.” JOHN BILDERBACK, PHOTOGRAPHER AND VIDEOGRAPHER
We talk to ten guys who've carved out careers in Hawaii and call it home.

HIGH TIMES! A DECADE OF KITEBOARDING - KWTV CHOICE CUTS
Celebrating the last decade of kiteboarding, this fine selection of vids documenting the bold, the brave, the skilled and the bloody insane...
Don't try this at home! Yes, that is a kite. And yes, that's a balloon he's just jumped out of. Good ad for the reliability of a Flysurfer though! Click here to watch the video
Equipment advances have been thick and fast over the last decade. Last newsletter we revealed what she'd look like. Now we have moving pictures and words from the design team. If we were any sharper we'd be dangerous! Click here for the Rhino video
Kiteboarders have to pay their dues from time to time, and here, an up-and-coming star of the Polish kitesurfing scene cracks out a move, but not in the way he'd hoped. Go to the dark-side by clicking here
