Hi Windlovers! I have just had the chance to try out the new 135cm Torque board from Ozone, so I thought I would share a quick review of this awesome new product with you.

Snow kiting conditions in southern New Zealand this season have been a all-time prime, with good winds, clear skies, great snow coverage and frequent top-ups of fresh powder.  A standard approach to long (50-80km) backcountry missions is to go with two foil kites – large and small – flying one and carrying the other for when wind conditions change en route or with elevation. Don't forget your climbing skins or snow shoes if the wind should drop when you're way out in the great white. The alpine plateaux of Mt Pisa, Old Man and Old Woman Ranges are like a...
