Some of the best memories of my life were made in 2011 … but 2012 turned out to be an incredible year as well! When I departed for my next big adventure, “Golden sands & European Trysts”, I had no idea the many great experiences that awaited me or where in the world I would I [...]

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 [...]
In June I took a short, cheap flight from Zurich to Hurghada to participated in my first KB4girls Global Event in El Gouna, Egypt. Warm sun, wind, and water combined with energizing girl power from 22 incredible ladies from three continents made for a fabulously fun experience! I first learned about KB4girls (Kiteboarding 4 Girls) when I returned to San [...]

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 [...]
I am so excited to be a part of the KB4girls kiting clinic and fundraising event in El Gouna, Egypt in a few weeks! Not only will I get to kitesurf (so fun!) in the Red Sea (so cool!), but I will also be kiting for a cause; which makes my time on the water [...]
Winter was dragging in San Francisco, the wind was predicted to hibernate in the Bay area until April. I hadn’t been on my kiteboard in months and was eager to get back on the water. To celebrate my 30-something birthday last month, three of my amigas and I headed south to Baja for an extra long [...]
