The moves that won the PKRA World Title

It’s about that time of year again; time for us to stoke your soggy
winter travel fires with a burning desire to get out there and
experience some of the best kiting on the planet. Issue #55 comes with
our free annual Travel Guide, which this year will be bigger than ever.
New additions to this year’s guide include Peru, Taiwan and the
Philippines, but as usual we’ll be covering most corners of the kiting

In the mag Youri Zoon breaks down the moves that won him the world title
and we sum-up the first KSP World Tour season. In global affairs, we
analyse the recovery of Egypt after the Arab Spring at the start of the
year – turns out kitesurfers have been key to the survival prospects of
many resorts, Jenna Hannon gives us the local’s lowdown on being a kiter
in the City of Angels and Yaron Barlev and Eitan Sultin kick-off a
series uncovering the riding potential in the Middle East, beginning
this issue with a tour of Israel’s top spots.

On top of all that we run through subtleties in bridle designs in our
technical feature, Pit Lane, Jason Wolcott blinds us with some of his
latest and greatest images and we’ll have a selection of the latest gear
to have been ragged by the test team. Plus lots more!

That’s a total of over 260 pages for you to dog ear in January!
