The first SBC Kiteboard issue of 2013 is in the mail and on the way to newsstands and kite shops across the USA and Canada. Here is a sneak peek at the cover with Keahi De Aboitiz.
"There are times, as a photographer, where you force yourself to shoot just one more wave. On this particular day, the wind was playing games with us, at times dropping to the point that Keahi de Aboitiz had to body-drag upwind in hopes of another 15 minutes worth of wind, timed perfectly with a set on a fading swell. My skin was wrinkled far beyond my years, my eyes were fried by the salt and blinding equatorial sun, and my skin scorched as my sunblock had long since washed off. But if Keahi was willing to body-drag waiting for a puff, then I could surely stay neck-deep for a few minutes more. Everything came together as a set started to march down the reef, timed with a nice 16-knot pulse. Keahi did the rest, pulling into one of the best kitesurfing barrels I have had the pleasure to capture." - Jason Wolcott
