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.
