UNDER PRESSURE // Corraling a bunch of international team riders to a South Pacific island is always going to be a logistical challenge. Throw in a few stubborn airline desk staff along the way, and it only gets tougher…

LAKE FANTASTIC // The consistent improvement in downwind gear of late meant that Naish's Michi Schweiger was able to live out a long held fantasy of downwinding Lake Garda with his pals. We get the full story.

LEADING THE CHARGE // Foiling is lucky to not have a huge amount of disparity between genders, at least within certain disciplines of the sport. But there's still a little work to be done. On the eFoil side, there's a crew of female chargers out there letting it be known that gender is no barrier to going electric…

BENEATH THE FOIL // With an increasingly populated water surface, it becomes even more important that we're considering what's underneath. Thankfully there are people out there like Marine Biologist Lorenzo Mittiga, who is very happy to have that conversation.

SKOOKUM NARROWS BC // We have a double helping of quality Brian Grubb adventures this issue, starting in British Columbia, where we join Brian on a standing wave on a remote and somewhat sketchy tidal inlet.

IN THE ZONE // In one of the most exciting M2O events to date, Oskar Johansson fought a close-run battle against his peers. We get the full round up of the day that led to him placing 2nd on the podium.

DESTINATION GUIDE // Itchy feet? Well, there's a cream for that. But there's also our first ever Destination Guide, with a comprehensive list of some of the most exotic locations that you'll definitely want to consider visiting…
