"LIFE IS LIKE A KITE LOOP: IF YOU HALF-ASS IT, IT'S GOING TO HURT."
Portrait PC: Amanda Emmes / Action PC: Frankie Bees / Naish
In this issue we see kiteboarders tackling nature at its most extreme. From the challenges of polar exploration by kite in the arctic circle to big wave charging in Portugal and the biblical destruction wrought on parts of the Caribbean during this year’s hurricane season – we see what happens when nature delivers its full payload.
Jesse Richman recently flew into Nazare, Portugal on a stellar forecast (check the cover below!) . He gives us the inside line on that in KW #90 and we also get an insight into the mind of Jesse in These Things I Know.
Trust me - he's borderline genius...
