Perhaps the most important award of this year, we consumed more kite media than ever in a period that saw many kiters locked down and unable to hit the beach. Equally, it was difficult for the brands and riders to get to the locations they usually would for shooting. However, you can never discount the ingenuity of kiters to come up with something extraordinary! We selected the most popular videos from the website and the most engaging content produced this year as nominees. Who is going to get your vote?
