Marina shreds off the DR

Marina Chang is the new publisher of The Kiteboarder and is in charge of managing operations, distribution,
finance, sales, marketing, promotions, and strategic relationships. She will also play a key role in shaping
editorial content and the overall vision of The Kiteboarder. A Journalism graduate from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo,
CA, Marina worked extensively in advertising, public relations and event marketing for over 12 years specializing
in retail, hospitality and tourism. Before joining The Kiteboarder, Marina traveled to the Dominican Republic to
paraglide and learn kiteboarding. She was immediately hooked on the sport, moved to Cabarete and was a
partner at Kitexcite for three years. Through her marketing efforts, the school is now one of the best known
Kite Centers in the world, and the most recommended resource for people wanting information about kiteboarding
in Cabarete and the Dominican Republic.

I just picked Issue #2 up and started flipping through the pages. These are just a FEW of the things that popped up ...


- Megaslider shots from Real Kiteboarding in OBX

- Hurricane Kiteboarding, or how we spent late summer in Florida! (a personal favorite)

- Average Joe, useful new rider knowledge gained along the way

- Kitebeaches.com goes mobile

- Mental Notes! Ideas from the Menta Zone

- King of the Air low down

- ISOBARS, how to read 'em

- X-RATED Baggage tips

- NEW SCHOOL, a profile of an up and coming rider

- License to Kite or ...

- Kite Loop tips from Mike the O.G.

- Send It (collage o' riders)

- The Fury Of Fluery, Bertand Fleury revealed

- Don't Worry, Bri Happy!, Chatting with Bri Chmel

- NORTHERN EXPOSURE! - 8 hot launches in the Great White Northwest!
(this ain't Maui were talking about)



AND that doesn't even get you half way through the mag. Lots of interesting stuff in the back half.
Gotta love that heavy, high gloss paper too. It feels and LOOKS like something ... SOLID. I know they
appear in a lot of publications but even the full page ads look GREAT! They are doing an excellent job in
photography and layout these days.


MORE GOOD THINGS TO COME FROM THE KITEBOARDER MAG. - COUNT ON IT!

Agree its far better to read any book/magazine in paper format but the PDF version is a great idea too especially as it the the only way I can read it.

Only just started to read Issue 2, and already can't wait for Issue 3... :D
