My August Getaway – Ilha do Guajiru, Brazil!

After the PKRA in Germany I wanted to go somewhere to train and to unwind at the same time. I thought of Egypt as it’s cheap and most kitespots have perfect conditions for Freestyle. But Paul wasn’t too crazy about me going alone to Egypt so we decided that Brazil would be a good choice. We have already been once in Ilha do Guajiru and I absolutely love it.

In 2012 I competed under the Venezuelan flag in the PKRA at the German and Venezuelan tour stop and I was actually ranked #7 in the world for a short time ;)

5 Caribbean Islands in 3 Weeks – ST. MARTIN

DSC_0890

As we are passionate frequent flyers we knew that Maho Beach in St. Martin is famous for plane watching. The arriving planes fly at minimum altitude over the beach and land on the smallest runway in the world just behind the beach at Juliana Airport (SXM). The vibe at the beach is awesome. Tourists stand at the beach sipping cocktails while airplanes come in for landing just a few feet above their heads. We have seen videos on youtube before and did not want to miss this experience. We checked the flight board before our arrival and saw that KLM would land about the same time as our plane. Unfortunately the plane already had arrived when we landed. But we asked the taxi driver to stop so that at least we could see the KLM plane taking off. So we hung on for the jet blast. I never imagined that the jet blast would be so powerful. It literally blows you away. I’m glad we were not standing right at the fence. After the KLM took off, we stayed to watch the DELTA flight coming in and took some nice photos.

7 steps on treating a sea urchin sting

Sea Urchin

I have had a lot of sea urchin stings and some spines on the bottom of my foot had to be removed with a laser. So you would think I learned my lesson.  But fiddlesticks! I stepped again on a sea urchin and instead of taking good care of it, I continued kiting. The wound got infected and I ended up going to the hospital where I had an incision (surgical cut) to drain the pus. So if you don’t want to end up like me, follow these steps to treat your sea urchin wound properly!

I love Paul’s video “Foiling in Venezuela” and he inspired me to do my own foiling video – the girl’s version. It took me quite some time to create the video especially finding license free music that matches my ideas. I wanted to do a video that’s fun to watch. So I hope you like it!

Raley to Blind – El Yaque | Coche Island

So finally here it is: My first video edited with Final Cut Pro. I bought the license for the song from Beatpick. The videos are shot with GoPros in Coche Island and El Yaque. In Coche I was training with my 2013 Cabrinha Xo Caliber board 129cm with foot straps. I’m still getting used to boots. In El Yaque I used my 2014 XCaliber Alberto Rondina Signature Carbon board 132cm with boots. And of course my so loved 2014 Cabrinha Siren kites ;)
