Hoe het weer werkt

By |2023-06-16T12:03:24-04:0016/06/2023|Uncategorized|0 Comments

Het is weer zover… Het orkaan én regenseizoen hebben zich weer aangekondigd. Al een paar dagen is er geen zuchtje wind voelbaar en de nachten zijn voorzien van heerlijke regen op de daken. Maar ik vind het genoeg geweest. Na een paar dagen van tricks visualiseren en lesmethoden uitdenken lijkt het zover. Er zal een briesje staan. Met mijn high volume directional en wave kite ga ik het water op. 
Ik ben alleen…. Opeens wordt de lucht koeler en wordt het wat donkerder. Ik kijk achter me en zie wat regenwolken en [...]

Is Kiteboarding Dangerous?

By |2023-08-09T10:37:29-04:0005/04/2020|Kitesurfing Spots|0 Comments

If kiteboarding is dangerous? Well, the most important of all is that almost everybody can learn to ride. Women, men, young and old. Even if you are not the fittest tool in the shed you can learn kiteboarding. A 3 year old has already been spotted kiteboarding. All you need to be able to kiteboard is to be comfortable at swimming, not be scared of water and know to have fun no matter what you do. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WTej8rm6yP4&t=140s Kiteboarding looks spectacular and to some very sensible people it looks dangerous to soar a [...]

The Twintip Kiteboard

By |2023-08-09T10:38:20-04:0003/04/2019|Kitesurfing Tech & Kiteboarding Tech|0 Comments

We see them often… Those big question marks in their eyes when we ask them what kind of twintip kiteboard they have. For all they know all kiteboards are the same… Actually, even better yet.. they have it because they liked the colour of the board. When they offer us a look at the board we already hope it’s not the shiny one, prominently draped on one of our couches. We look at their happy faces while the wave their shiny board in our faces while showing off their little tiny ‘blades’, [...]

How the Kite flies

By |2023-08-09T10:36:35-04:0007/03/2019|Kitesurfing Tech & Kiteboarding Tech|0 Comments

How does the kite fly? It has been slamming onto the water for over 30 minutes now… While Yoël has been calling out for about the same amount of time already… All I have been hearing is… “Release the bar!!” Bwwwhhaaaammmmm “Let go of the bar!!” Frrrrrrrttttt Bammmmm “Not the orange line!” Crashhhh. It's my day off, but it isn’t Yoël’s. That beautiful first lesson... I turn around in my hammock and return to reading my book. When about 1 hour later I realize that they are quiet, no slamming and [...]

The Kiteboarding Kite

You have just rolled and stuffed our kiteboarding kite into its bag and have collected your snotty towel. This of course after rinsing your sinuses with loads of salty St. Joris [...]
