The Need for Good Sportsmanship in Kiteboarding

Margarita Wild Winds 2013

We have all witnessed the drama that happened at the PKRA when they decided to re-run the final from the Pingtan event between Karolina Winkowska and Gisela Pulido at the last tour stop in Hainan. The decision was then overturned by the IKA. In between the two events kiteboarding forums and social media were on fire. The girls dissed each other publicly. People were taking sides – Team Gisela vs Team Karolina. What happened to good sportsmanship? Has everyone adopted a “win at all cost” philosophy? The phenomenon above does not only happen at the World Tour. It also happens a lot at smaller local competitions. There is always a lot of “whine whine whine” and “cry cry cry”.

How To Avoid “Ocean Frizzy Hair”

Suncare Kiting

When we moved to Margarita Island, I wasn’t using any special product for my hair. But my hair took quite a beating after a couple of month. Saltwater and sun can really damage your hair. And even though I love feeling the wind in my hair while kiting, I do not like the destroyed fried hair afterwards. I spent hours trying to detangle my hair. It was time to do some research and try out sun protecting hair products.

Icy fingers and toes after kiting? You may have Raynaud’s disease!

DSC_8831

Did you ever come off the water and noticed your fingers and toes have turned ghostly blue-white? You may have Raynaud’s disease, a circulatory disorder that limits blood supply and makes the affected areas – mostly fingers and toes – feel numb and cold in response to cold temperatures.

Ibiza calling

It was on our bucket list to go party in Ibiza and and it has been on my mind for the past 10 years. I know, it doesn’t have much to do with kiteboarding. But as this blog is about kitesurf AND travel, I thought I give you my review of clubbing in Ibiza.

TRIANGL bikini review from a Kitesurfer’s point of view

DSC_9749

Lots of women have a thing for shoes. Me? I’m a bikini girl. I absolutely love bikinis. But finding the right bikini for kitesurfing has been an ongoing challenge for me for years. On Instagram I stumbled upon the TRIANGL bikinis and let myself get sucked into the hype. Could these bikinis made of neoprene be the ones that I have been looking for for years? Here is my TRIANGL bikini review – from a kitesurfer’s point of view:
