Taaroa Sword Foil Girl

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 😉

Campeonato Nacional WK – Venezuelan National Kitesurf & Windsurf Championship

The 3rd tour stop of the Campeonato Nacional Windsurf & Kitesurf 2014 took place in El Yaque from May 9th till May 11th, 2014. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to go to the first two stops. As I came back from Coche just before the start of the competition, I wasn’t able to train and try out the course like all the others. They didn’t put a schedule on the website or social media so it was hard for me to find out where and when registration was and when riders meetings will be held. I wrote them an email and they replied in a very friendly way where and when I could register. And through a friend who’s mom is with the organization I received the following itinerary:

4 Days Kiting at Coche Island

I initially booked the hotel for only two nights but then decided to stay two additional nights. Coche can be pretty crowded but this time I lucked out. Everybody was training for the upcoming competition in El Yaque and there were only very few kiters in Coche. Often I was alone on the water. Perfect to progress in Freestyle. I also wanted to use my time alone in Coche to learn how to use my NIKON V2 camera. I am especially interested in learning how to take good photos of kiteboarders doing tricks. You can see the results in the photos.
