This year in Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, the SBC test team was hard at work putting the latest designs through the paces in plenty of wind and waves at various sound and ocean locations. We have compiled some of the details here to help guide you through the ever-evolving kite-gear jungle, and let you pinpoint the kites and boards you should demo this season. The full details of board tests will be available in the spring issue.
The SBC test team encourages riders from every discipline and skill level to get out and demo the 2009 kite designs. There is something out there for everyone and you’ll never know what you’re missing if you don’t try something new. We’re confident you’ll be impressed.
Be sure to check out the gear selector chart on page 81 of the SBC Kiteboard 2009 Buyer's Guide issue to help narrow down your choices.
SBC test team: John Bryja, Craig Cunningham, Dave Marshall, Daniel Steiner, Shane Thompson and David Tran
