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.
… 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!
