Red Bull Lighthouse to Leighton Race 2017

Red Bull Lighthouse to Leighton Race 2017

I competed in my first long distance kiteboarding race! The 19km race began on Rottnest Island and ended in Leighton, Perth, Western Australia. The race was fun but extremely challenging as the winds were light (10-15kts) and the largest kite I had with me was a 10 meter. It was a slow go for me […]

Squamish, so beautiful so cold!

Squamish, so beautiful so cold!

Squamish … the town name means “mother of wind” for the thermal wind that blows consistently through the valley. The Spit is where hundreds of kiters launch and enter the water where the river pours into the Howe Sound. Squamish is perhaps the most idyllic kite spots I have experienced, with gorgeous mountain and waterfall […]

Kite Babes in Palawan

Kite Babes in Palawan

Missing the wind and desiring a tropical paradise where we could kite in bikinis, five kite babes fled California winter to explore the gorgeous Palawan islands in the Philippines. I packed my new bikinis I bought from a small boutique I stumbled upon in the Mission District in San Francisco. How was it possible that there was […]

Hawaii … where have you been all my life?

Hawaii … where have you been all my life?

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 […]

Raggamuffin Sailing in Belize

Imagine waking up on this tropical deserted island in the Caribbean and watching the sunrise as you kitesurf in empty butter flat turquoise waters. My mates Julian and Lukas did just this and you can too! Julian snapped this gorgeous photo on his GoPro while on a sailing adventure with Raggamuffin Tours in Belize. When […]

Kitespot Review: Gokova Bay, Turkey

Kitespot Review: Gokova Bay, Turkey

A kite spot that is “Always Windy” is a kiters dream.  Sarah Craddy of Always Windy promotes her organized kitesurf holidays to such dream spots, one of which is Gokova Bay, Turkey. I spent ten days kiting in Gokova bay last September, and had strong, consistent wind 9 out of the 10 days I was there. […]

Kite Spot Review: Caye Caulker, Belize

Kite Spot Review: Caye Caulker, Belize

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 […]

Bonifacio – my favorite Corsican city

Bonifacio – my favorite Corsican city

Teetering on the edge of magnificent limestone cliffs is the ancient and idyllic fortress town of Bonifacio. For all of the beautiful reasons seen below, Bonifacio is my favorite town on the French island of Corsica. Panorama view from the citadel when you climb up the “montée.” Looking out into the deep blue mediterranean sea! […]

Corsica a mountain in the sea

Corsica a mountain in the sea

I knew nothing of Corsica before I spent two weeks  in June camping and driving around the small island in the mediterranean sea. All I saw impressed me greatly. The island appears to be one big green mountain, and in fact two-thirds of the island is mountains forming a single chain. I enjoyed driving along […]

Kitespot Review: Sakalava Bay – Kiteboarding in Madagascar

Kitespot Review: Sakalava Bay – Kiteboarding in Madagascar

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 […]
