North Kiteboarding Issue 03/2018

forums_20180315_09.jpg

 

Hello and welcome to the latest news update from North Kiteboarding HQ.

 

The 2018 GKA Kite-Surf World Tour got off to a cracking start in Cape Verde, won by local hero and NKB team rider Airton Cozzolino and a respectful 3rd of team mate Sebastian Ribeiro from Brasil. Aaron Hadlow hit our screens this month with the first instalment from his latest series, Aaron Airs. One to watch this year is Aussie James Carew. A powerhouse with a smooth surf style, he's an exciting addition to the team. Paula's new movie 'Going North' movie truly shows the passion she has for the sport, culture, the ocean and wind. She dreams big, works hard and it certainly shines through in this flick. Ken Winner shares the design process involved in bringing the 2018 Dyno to life. Finally, we are stoked to win Best Kite Brand and Best Kite Manufacturer of 2017! Huge thanks to all who voted for us as well as our loyal customers!

Airton Victorious On Home Soil

"There was quite a lot of pressure to win. It's my home spot and all my friends and family were there to support. I wanted to be the first! I'm stoked on my performance and to take 1st place in my backyard means everything. It's a dream come true." - Airton Cozzolino.

Aaron Airs

"I created Aaron Airs as a platform to keep people engaged and updated on my season. As the concept evolved I wanted to let viewers into my kiteboarding life, talk to friends and the people I work with year in, year out, and try to do it in an interesting and informational way. It's a show for the fans alongside my normal media output." - Aaron Hadlow.

Who Is James Carew?
I have always been passionate about waves and surf-style. North already has a great Strapless team made up of some of the strongest riders on the tour, so being able to say that I'm part of that is really special.
