IKSurf & Tonic Awards 2022
As we wrap up another epic year on the water, IKSurf and Tonic Magazine have opened up their Reader Awards in order to get your vote.
We’ve consolidated some quick links to help you cast your vote…
Best Kitesurfing Accessories Brand of 2022.
Where would we be without our favorite accessories? These are essentials to go kitesurfing; without them, we’d probably be hypothermic on the beach with massively sore arms! This is your chance to vote for your favourite accessories brand of 2022. Who had the best wetsuits, harnesses, footstraps, fins, and all those other things that amplify your time on the water?
Best Male Kitesurfer of 2022 – Juan Rodriguez.
In 2022, some fresh faces came onto the scene, taking out some of the biggest names in the industry. While we’d love to include our old favourites in this list, times are changing, and we must adapt. If you don’t recognise some of these names, look them up – they are the future of kiting! These young riders deserve the opportunity to duke it out for the coveted title of Best Male Kitesurfer of 2022. So, who will take the crown?
Best Video of 2022 [Nomination] – Pathways featuring Jack Rieder.
Take a trip down memory lane with Jack Rieder! Although Jack’s only been kiteboarding for about six years, his relationship with the oceans and lakes started long before that. Having recently overcome his first big injury, he feels like he has grown significantly as an athlete and a person. Reconnected with himself and his passion, he’s healed up and is more motivated than ever!
Best Wing / Hydrofoiling Accessories Brand of 2022.
Especially in harsh conditions, hydrofoiling accessories are essential. They allow us to stay out there despite the elements for as long as possible. Which brand offered the best, long lasting, comfortable, quick-drying accessories?
Best Foilboard Manufacturer of 2022.
It’s no secret that not all boards are made equal – but we’ll need your help deciding on the best! So who gets your vote for the Best Boards Manufacturer of 2022? Which brands were the most innovative, used the best materials and created the ultimate magic carpet?
Best Hydrofoil Manufacturer of 2022.
This award goes to one foil in particular because making the perfect foil is an art! Which brand provided us with the most choices, which foil used the best materials, was easy to assemble, and felt comfortable on the water?
Best Male Winger of 2022 –
There have been quite a few names that have stood out in the wingfoiling world, and we’ve tried our best to compile the best of the very best, but who did you think stood out the most? Who claimed their spot on the podium and shared exciting and innovative content throughout the year. This is the first of many (hopefully) Tonic Mag Male Winger of 2022, but who will claim the first award?
Best Wing Foiling Video of 2022 – Zane Schweitzer Pathways.
Grab a seat; you’re in for a treat. Join us as we dive into the world of Maui-born waterman Zane Schweitzer. Filmmaker Tao Farren-Hefer takes a fly-on-the-wall approach to unpacking what has led Zane from his childhood on the water to competition wins and a near-death experience, up to his current internationally recognised waterman, author, and environmentalist…
