Issue 74: Buggy Newz: Life’s a Beach!

This worked well but as I got closer to the coast the rain started, as expected, and as I arrived at the campsite by 4.00pm, I was surprised at how many folks were already there. As the rain had been predicted for the evening I decided, unwisely I might add, not to take my tent, […]

Issue 41: ProFile with Bob Childs

We got to talking around the Kitelife office, discussing those areas of kiting that we haven’t focused on recently… You know – those “power” guys, and some folks in other countries, and the Kite Aerial Photography (KAP) aficionados, and also some of kiting’s “historical” figures too! Anyway, Bob Childs’ name came up in our discussions, […]
