IKA Surf reader award 2019

The IKSURFMAG Readers Awards have been a regular feature of the kite industry since 2011; their nine-year history has seen them grow to become the most respected awards in the kitesurfing calendar. What makes them different is that they are voted for by the readers of IKSURFMAG, a very strong media outlet in the business. This year over 15,000 votes were cast, and as ever the competition was fierce. Each winning brand gets a special awards logo they can use on their site and a physical award for the trophy cabinet. Next year is the tenth anniversary, and we are planning something even bigger!” – Rou Chater, Publishing Editor - IKSURFMAG

“This is a simple one, who out there made the best kites in 2019, consider not just your favourite kite and how it flies, but the build quality, the number of designs and the ethos of the brand.” IKSURFMAG.


“Since we became Duotone, there has been a noticeable increase in people joining our community and investing in our products; a shift in the industry. We have always focused on quality, reliability, safety and innovation. The manufacturing process brings our designs to life, creating product lines that speak to the rider, its performance-driven designs for the emotional connection.”
