THE 2006 FIX
WITH FREE KING OF THE AIR Red Bull DVD
Issue 20 is all about getting back on the water. Some of us have dug deep and taken advantage of the awesome conditions that this time of year brings. Others are chomping at the bit to get back out. This issue we whet your appetite with a bone big enough for the Rottweiler in all of us.
We’ve taken inspiration from all the tales we’ve had of riders getting out no matter what. We’ve sampled much of that winter fire and doused the pages of issue 20 with images and session notes from December 2005 through the eyes of riders and photographers across the world. Norway, France, Brazil, South Africa, the US and Wales – experience them all.
Also, we follow the ballsiest riders for a year during the making of their new movie, we’ve got more riding tips than ever before, and much, much more.
The season has started…
