KITEWORLD SUMMER EDITION 2021

FEATURE HIGHLIGHTS

PLACES YOU SHOULD NEVER GO KITE…

When Dutch photographer Ydwer van der Heide and his frequent trip companion, South African Oswald Smith, were turned away at the check-in desk for their flight to the Bahamas due to Covid restrictions last December, they reconsidered an unlikely location they’d never quite pulled the trigger on booking in the past

RIDER UNCOVERED

The return of a classic Kiteworld series from the early 2000s. This issue we knock on the door of Clinton Filen, a man fascinated by the idea of multi-purpose gear and well positioned to pack one of the most interesting travel quivers, as brand director of Airush Kiteboarding and AK Durable Supply Co

THE BETTER KITER

Self rescue kitesurfing technique feature

If you’re not 100% clued up on self-rescue technique, you’re reading the right issue! BKSA head of training, Andy Gratwick, refreshes us on the get-to-shore drills

OFF LIMITS: OAHU

Seasoned North Shore surf and kite photographer, John Bilderback, watched Moona Whyte, Keahi de Aboitiz and Reo Stevens step beyond the usual boundary ropes with their kites this winter season

YDWER UPDATE

We catch up with photographer Ydwer van der Heide to get an update on his recovery after a serious surf foiling accident in February left him with little movement below his shoulders


NARROWED HORIZONS

Those lucky enough to be paid to kite and travel share experiences from an unusual year spent riding at home. We also hear from two riders who managed to escape… and just kept on going!


ALL I NEED

If the thought of negotiating airports these days leaves you feeling aggravated and anxious, has the idea of escaping in a van ever seemed more appealing? Antoine Auriol sells the dream this issue after a long trip around the incredible Iberian peninsula


FASHIONABLY LATE

KW editor Jim Gaunt hooked up with Core designer Jan Termöhlen to find out why one of the most anticipated first foil releases took until 2021 to launch


LIP SUNGLASSES INTERVIEW

Riding with sunglasses can be a hassle, but Lip Sunglasses technical director, Graham Saunders-Griffiths, could have you reconsidering your approach to eye protection on the water


LEARN TO KITELOOP!

Lewis Crathern prepares you to send it this summer


PLUS – TESTS:

More key players get a rinsing: Cabrinha’s 2021 product range that launched in February is hot. This issue we contrast the Moto and Switchblade. CrazyFly’s Infinity foil kite set us free in some very light winds in recent months and the irrepressible Duotone Neo has had an SLS make-over. Find out how much difference that has made, plus there are highlights of the standout items we’ve tested and published reviews of online since the last print issue
