Winter on Fuerteventura is normally really quiet, there is not much wind but instead we’ve got lot’s of free time. I decided to use it effectively and I came up withe the idea of making my car a little bit “happier”.
The main reason of this action is to make people smile…Do You think it’s going to work? ?
Last week, on Tuesday morning I was woken up by somebody ringing the door bell very intensively. At first I was pissed, who wouldn’t be? I had changed my mind completely when I saw that that was a courier with couple of huge boxes for me. Funny, it was my birthday that day so have a look! That is definitely the biggest b-day present I’ve ever got!
These were my Liquid Force kites, could not imagine a better present! Well, whole gear for the next season was already collected so I directly booked my flight to Fuerteventura to try it out. Looks like I am lucky, there is some wind!
My board sponsor SU-2 boards was really generous this year. I’ve got 7 brand new boards from them and that can only mean… PICTURE TIME! My mother wants to learn kiting this week, so I came up with the idea that she should earn her lesson. So here it is my mum’s first kite picture session:
I am extremely happy to announce that Liquid Force company has decided to support my project of personal kite coaching. This season ( and hopefully the next ones as well) we are going to fly the newest 2014 ENVY kites!
Looking forward to try them out at my homespot Sotavento!
Check out the new collection of Liquid Force Kites here.
I did’t realise that being unemployed is so hard! For the last 2 weeks I have been staying at my parents’ hause in Poland, still waiting for my passport to be done. All my old frends left to England or somewhere else long time ago….so I am here totally on my own. I tried to find some activities like raking leaves at my grandmother’s allotment. 15 Ares! Don’t trust this picture, after 2 hours I was not so happy any more!
But that’s not everything. Polish web portal Bluelife was collecting kite riders’ profiles. I suggested that I could help them with creating a kite part of the portal and they seemed to be pleased to hear that. Well, I am running now the project called ” Kite beach of the month”, I choose beaches which are the most windy at one certain month. First article about Brasil beaches in November is already online! You can read it here , of course unless You can understand polish ;p
My last project is my new private blog, which is absolutely not connected with kitesurfing.. but I am not telling You anything more yet. Time will show!
This year, instead of going to one country for winter training, I decicded to jump into a car and go around Europe in search of nice windy beaches. I started my journey in Scheveningen, Haag in Holland, where for the first time I got a chance to take part in MINI Kitesurf Tour Europe. We got little wind that’s why we ran single and double elimination in one day, means I had to run 8 hits with just little breaks. Finally, after the super final with Sabrina Lutz, I ended up on the second place! Exhausted but satisfied…
After that, together with my good friend, we drove to Paris, where we had some education program ( Louvre, Moulin Rouge and of course Eiffle Tower) Last day we spent in Disneyland, which was so dissapointing…. I didn’t meet Micky Mouse:-/
Just when the wind forecast appeard to be better, we headed in the direction of north cast of France, hoping for getting some action in the water. Well, we didn’t get any but the beaches of the west side of Bordoux are endless and as beautifull as the one which I know from Fuerteventura.
On the spanish- french boarder I said goodbye to m y friend and jumped into the train from San Sebastian to Barcelona, where another stop of MINI European Contest should take place. The forecast looked not promising but unexpectadly on the second day was “windy”…… well enough to run competition. This time I was not so lucky, my kite appeard to be waaaaaaay to small and I landed outside of the competition area, actually just after I started. We didn’t have the opportunity to run doubles, wind didn’t appear any more but still I got amazing time in Barcelona….sighsteeing!
Well and now… I just discovered my passport is not more valid so I am heading my home country, Poland:)
