Bas Koole Gets Bday Gift from Kiteworld

Some may say that today, the 9th of May, is Europe Day. But the people who love to have fun out on the water know that today is in fact the birthday of Airush-sponsored pro kiteboarder Bas Koole. I believe that a joyous and heartfelt “Happy Birthday, Bas!” is in order. So here goes: Happy Bday Bas, hope all your wishes come true!

Bas got a pretty cool gift from Kiteworld magazine – he is on the cover of Kiteworld issue 51. He’s inside the magazine as well; he’s the star of some pretty cool pics shot by Ydwer van der Heide. The pics were shot in Brazil and, as Kiteworld explained, capture the art of freestyle riding.

As you can imagine, Bas was pretty stoked to make the cover of Kiteworld. He said he’s very excited to make the cover of one of his favorite magazines.
