I cannot think of a more amazing place to go on a snowkite trip than Patagonia, in the south of Chile. It has to be one of the best spots to discover some real untouched, rugged beauty. No better place to get back to the roots of snowkiting and appreciate what mother Nature has to […]
This weekend Edge Watersports hosted the annual British Kite Racing Championships in Exmouth. There was tight racing in the top three between Olly Bridge, Guy Bridge and Connor Bainbridge. After recent performances in races around the World Guy and Connor were looking more likely than ever to knock Olly off the top spot. Experience and […]
Toby is one of the rising stars of British Freestyle. After his success in the Junior category last year, he decided that despite being young enough to remain in the juniors, he wanted to step up and compete in the Junior Pro category. This is a big leap as most of the competitors are much […]

IKSURFMAG took one on test to the Hardangervidda plateau – the Norweigan snowkite mecca which hosts the RedBull Ragnarok race. Here the kites lightwind and race performance were tested. Foil kites are becoming […]
Flysurfer foil kites come set up with the Front Line Safety system – this means the kite flags out on a single front line. It is possible to reset the safety system whilst in the water and relaunch the kite to continue your session.
