Over the past fifteen years, the extreme sport of kiteboarding has developed from an unlikely concept into a worldwide phenomenon. Kiteboarding: Where itís at . . . tracks these changes and looks at the various tangents that the sport has taken.
With stunning photography, each part reviews one of the four main disciplines within the sport: Freestyle, Waveriding, Wakestyle and Course Racing. Within each part is a background to the discipline, the kit, profiles of prime locations, key events and some of the riders and brands who have come to define the sport.
With over 200 shots from the best photographers in the game, and comprehensive access to all of the main players within the sport, author Alex Hapgood has ensured that Kiteboarding: Where itís at . . . is the most comprehensive and visually stunning representation of the sport to date.
