Hawaii … so close to my home in San Francisco that I chose to visit far flung lands instead, knowing I could easily pop over to the islands any time I wanted. I finally dug my toes into the sandy warm shores of Maui over a year ago, and I finally am updating my blog […]
Experience new riding freedom on a Cloud kite, created by Boardriding Maui. “I developed the Cloud to perform radically different from all other kites. It is only for riders with a passionately different definition of their riding.” – Greg Drexler
The sun was dipping into the Caribbean Sea as the speedboat docked upon the palm laden island. I was greeted by a strong breeze, affirming my decision to come to Belize for a solo kite holiday. After dropping off my bags at a hostel, I wandered down the beach, reveling in the freedom to explore […]
The Varatraza blew fiercely across Sakalava Bay. I dug my toes into the white sandy beach, watching Tom kite between the stone islands. He was clearly overpowered on his 6 meter kite, the wind gusting from 35-40 knots. I had attempted to go out earlier, but the strong wind proved too powerful for little ole […]

Since I have become a kitesurfer I find myself in places I would never choose to visit as a traveler. El Gouna, Egypt is one of these places (as is Hua Hin, Thailand) that delights the kiter in me with windy shores, while disappointing the traveler in me with an abundance or tourists and void […]
When your boyfriend lets you fly his brand new 2012 Cabrinha Swtichblade 6m kite before he does! To see more photos from kiting in Dakhla, Western Sahara CLICK HERE!
Dakhla is located in Western Sahara, a disputed territory claimed by Morocco. The main kitespot is located about 30km north of Dakhla city pretty much in the middle of the Sahara. I kited here in late April and would guess that we had 20-25 knots every day. We rode comfortably on a 6m Cabrinha Switchblade […]
