Got in the shop this morning and SendIt walked in with the premiere edition of Kiteboarding Magazine. This was before my time, but as someone who loves history this was fun to look at and see how much things have changed. Here are a few scans I thought y'all might enjoy.

Gotta love the cover, we are still talking about trying to go big in 10knts 15 years later...Haha

Fall of 1999 for me as well. Peter Lynn cquad. Wow had my ass kicked all winter learning. Best memories of the sport when no one else knows what you are doing and you get spanked every time you fly it. Now in 2014 my wife is flying a 5m in 35knots on the snow and all is good. Times have changed!!
