TheKiteMag Issue #5

Cover1 - TheKiteMag Issue #5

Issue #5 of TheKiteMag is here. Bigger yet again with 144 pages of premium quality photo and feature goodness.  We've even got around to squeezing Mr Hadlow onto the cover… 

For this issue we held our deadline to ensure that we could get the first sumptuous print photos from the Triple-S to you. These epic shots are stitched together with some exclusive words from the main man on the front line, Brian Wheeler. He talks us through the history of the event, how things went down this year (spoiler alert: it was pretty tense), and also caught up with event founder Trip Foreman to see what he's made of the last ten years, and his hopes for the next ten.
