KITEWORLD MAGAZINE

THE FINAL ISSUE

Our younger readers will find it hard to imagine a time when if you weren't personally part of the discussion or nightly garage gear tweak, or you weren't right there at the spot to witness groundbreaking events, then it was hard to spread the word of evolution beyond the rumour mill. There was no Facebook and no forums. A lot has happened since we started publishing in 2002, as you'll get a feel for when you cast your eye over all the Kiteworld covers below, and on the next three pages.
