Kia Orana Folks,

You will find that the next week will be very quite from our side. Tomorrow (16th Apr) morning we will be off to Aitutaki where we will be spending 7 nights on an isolated Motu, called Akaiami, with no connection to the rest of the world.

See ya on the other side 🙂

Rediscovering “SurferBoy”

windsurfing

… I can just hear the SurferBoy jingel … something like the theme song to Superman :-))))

Windsurfing was my passion in the 1980’s. Back then when Robby Nash, another perfect 1963 vintage :-), was emerging as the worlds windsurfer “wunderkind”. As with many, the responsibilities of life and a family steadily blew away my windsurfing time, until it came to a dead stop.

No worries man … I’m back … and ready to ride again!

So I’m studying the latest windsurfing gear on offer, and discovered that some things have chnaged for the better. However, all in all I am glad to report that the basics remain the same … balance on the board, hold on to the sail … and away you go 🙂

Next, I wanted to explore windsurfing location … starting with The Cook Islands. During my last visit I suspected that the Aitutaki lagoon was a perfect spot for speed surfing. However I did  not see much back then. Surfing the net, I discovered that other adventure windsurfers discovered it too. Click here for a bit more.

Then I discovered that Kitesurfing is even bigger with some international events having been hosted at the lagoon. Guess I am gonna have to give it a bash!
