Kitesurf?
#1
We have just spent the last month working our socks off here at IKSURFMAG towers and just finished a new website for the magazine.

<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.iksurfmag.com">http://www.iksurfmag.com</a><!-- m -->

Basically it makes it loads easier to access different sections and also makes it interactive with the clever Facebook Connect technology.

I know there are a few kiters on here so hopefully they will find it of interest. Even if you don't kite, feel free to check it out. It is free to read the magazine and you don't have to register...

Checked it out earlier via Facebook - looks really slick, I like it.

Put me down for a job if you do a biking one!  Wink

Free kites to Sketchy members I think is what Rou meant to say, but he cant really put that on a website.. I'm picking mine up on Thursday by the way Wink

Yeah we avoid the prices, mainly as its an international magazine and the price of a kite in France varies wildly to one in the UK and so on and so forth.

They are madly expensive though, £1000 for a new one but you could pay upwards of £1300, and you need 2 or 3! The second hand market is really cheap though, so unlike a good bike which should hold some of its value, kites sadly don't.

I think Rou should have a complete 101 for Noobs to Kitesurfing, Im only about 5mins from the sea, I think trying to kill myself in mid-air with another expensive hobby would be ideal!  Wink

Also - just a suggestion, could you not setup a search box to enable visitors to search all the current and back issues? I think that would be a powerful tool, especially for looking for product reviews and pictures of hot surfer chicks

About £100 to £600 normally, the more you spend the newer and safer kite your get. Really old second hand gear is pretty dangerous for a learner to be using. Can you fly a normal 2 line kite andy?

Read and had a flick through as normal Rou.
