Issue 80: Kites… Life.

Where are we, and where are we going? Here we are again, this time for our 80th issue of Kitelife… When I took over the reins from my friend Mike Gillard in January of 2003, I had no idea where it would lead, but I’m pretty pleased with what we’ve done over the past fifty-three […]

Issue 71: From the Editor

Wow, seventy-one issues… Can you believe we’ve been at it this long? Even since I took over ownership from Kitelife’s original owner Mike Gillard in 2003, we’ve done fourty four issues and a great deal has happened in the meantime, much of which can be found in our archived pages here on the site. We’re […]

Wow, can you believe this issue marks our 11th year as an Internet magazine? Still run by kitefliers, for kitefliers like it was in the beginning, and while the variety and quality of content may fluctuate as it does with any publication, we’ve always tried to deliver a real “from the streets” kind of flavor, […]
