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.

Araya – Venezuela’s Secret Flat Water Kitesurf Spot

We booked the trip with Araya Kitesafari. Departure time from El Yaque was 6am arriving in Araya 1,5 hours later. We checked in to our posada and were served breakfast almost immediately. Around 11am we took the boat to the kitespot. The wind was very strong this time and we barely did unhooked tricks. But the water was flat as usual and everybody had a great time boosting big jumps and old school tricks. Around 5pm the girls decided to kite back to the posada followed by the boat with the rest of the group. Arriving at the beach in front of the posada, we did jumps and tricks impressing the locals so much that they wanted to take photos with us once we landed our kites. It was a great first day.
