The children most certainly are the future of our sport and last week saw the World Kiteboarding League play host to the Junior Championship for riders from 8 to 18 at St.Pere Pescador, Costa Brava, Spain.
Time does not stand still and there is a new generation of rider ready to rock it on and off the water. Emmka Martonova is one such rider who has just been picked up by Crazy Fly, so it is time to get to know her better.
It can also go very wrong for even the best riders in the world and after so many attempts at a tricks and many crashes sometimes you just have to accept that is not your day and sit back, take a break and smile about it.
We talk to Canadian Marie-Eve Mayrand who overcame a personal injury, 45- to 48- knot winds, and a collision to place third in the women’s snowboard category at the Red Bull Ragnarok 2017 world snow-kite race in Norway.
