Product Description

Review

"Holy cow. I can only imagine the work that went into this - what an incredible amount of time and dedication!" --Windsurfing Magazine, USA

"A fantastic book, every kiter and windsurfer simply should have one!" --KITE Magazine

"What makes this 320 page creation so special: it doesn't just introduce the spots and anlyzes the wind, weather and wave conditions, but also gives you comprehensive tips for planning your trip and what you need to know when staying there - expert information for live-loving enthusiasts." --FIT FOR FUN

"Now the WORLD GUIDE should join the EUROPE GUIDE in every glove compartment and on every bedside table."
--kitelife

From the Publisher

The endeavours behind this 320 page work were enormous: like the EUROPE GUIDE all the information was collated first hand from hundreds of experienced locals. On top over 50 pro riders, world champions and legends of our sports contributed their knowledge and experience. The Wall-of-Fame is adorned with names like Antoine Albeau, Kristin Boese, Pete Cabrinha, Bjørn Dunkerbeck, Aaron Hadlow, Robby Naish, Ruben Lenten, Ben Wilson and many, many more – a who's-who of the whole kite and windsurfing scene. And finally the archives of 100 of the world's leading photographers had to be screened and out of 20.000 action and travel shots, the best 700 pictures were selected for the book.

the book has lots of information but beware that if you want info on european spots it is nowhere near as comprehensive as the european edition and if you are principally going to sail in europe the other edition is essential and super detailed. Sailing around the rest of the world your destinations are often preordained so this book is less useful and rather more for interest value.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4/5, Book should have been hardcover 5 Nov. 2010
By brent123 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Great book, full color, lots of information not just about places to visit, but winds, tides etc.

The book is quite large, not a pocket book and has beautiful full color pictures. The only negative I found was for the price you should be getting a hard cover.

Go Buy It, this is one of a kind!

This was a gift for my son who is really into windsurfing. He picked it out and really wanted it. The satisfied grin on his face was all the "thanks" I needed!
5.0 out of 5 stars Book full of info and details 19 Dec. 2010
By Brittany - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book exceeded my expectations. The amount of info and detail on kitesurfing, wind, AND travel was all you'd ever need to know when planning a kite trip. I will never need to buy a lonely planet again!

Really nice book, well made and documented. To cover the world is quite a job! A few popular spots are not covered, but it's still a good reference.
