Gabe it is not obvious to me were the link is to there survey?

My input is to not leave out a major brand because they do not by a full page ad, I saw this happen in "Windsport Magazine last summer" when they were reviewing sails, they completly ignored Gaastra, in there review,comparison of gear.

I also would like to see a history of the different companies and who the main players are behind them, including who owns them, and if they are affiliated with other buisness that make other products have nothing to do with windsurfing or kiteboarding, who the money men are, were the kites are made. A tour of the factories, etc.

A survey of what brands are most popular at certain venues around the world.

An anaylesis of the maturity of the industry, competition, brands we have never heard of in the Bay area etc.

Thanks

Jeff

It's not obvious at all but it is there. It's the "The Kiteboard Magazine wants to send you to the Dominican Republic".

Get to express your opinion to the magazine's editor, get a free mag (I got one!), and BONUS entered into a trip to DR.

Great points!

Our Gear Guide is coming up next issue and we have given every manufacturer the opportunity to highlight their gear.

On the Innovators and designers, you hit the nail on the head...stay tuned to future issues for interviews and profiles of the creators of our kites.

There is actually a section on our website that says something like "send your comments to the editor" that is another option or just email editor@kbmag.com

Thanks for the comments.
