Capital city of Sal… no clue what the name is!
I was thinking about this trip a long time ago, at last Cabo Verde Island are just 1700 km from my homespot, Fuerteventura on Canary Islands. This year I’ve finally found a great reason to do that!
Kook Proof kite school on Sal was organizing an IKO instructor course, where I could upgrade my qualifications. Not hasitating much, I booked the flight, which appeard to be pretty challenging! To save money I decided to fly with some local airlines, which ended up in taking 3 separate planes…Well I was lucky to got there on time, the way back I needed to spent 10 hours waiting on the airport because they had cancelled the flight without bothering themselves to inform me about it.. What a pity! Those ten hours were actually devoted to see another island Santiago, where I was supposed to spend another day.
My travel phlosophy is not to book any accommodations through the Internet, but to look for it already on the spot. It’s much more exciting to go somewhere without knowing actually, where are You going to sleep. Moreover it’s normally a way cheaper. This time I was extremally lucky! One of the kite instructor had booked an apartment for his parents and they were coming exactly the day I was leaving. I could live there for the whole week almost for free.

Anyway, time spent on Sal was amazing! I’ve learnt how to give classes out from the boat on the deep water. Though it scared me at the beginning, I saw that is actually pretty effective way of learning..unless there are massive waves and super strong wind:)
So now, with lots of new experiances, happy to be back home!

I cannot remember the last time I was wearing a dress…That was probably on my First Communion.. Anyway, it’s seems like it’s going to change!
Polish company SUNASU, which is an abbreviation from SUkienki Na SUwaki (dress with zipper) has offered me to try them out. At the beginning sceptical, but I took an offer and I absolutely don’t regret that. Sunasu appeard to fit my needs perfectly. It’s just so comfortable to put it on after a surfing or kite session in cold water. I wonder why nobody has came up with this idea before!
So guys it looks like Wiktoria is going to wear dresses now! And You can check out the new collestion of SuNaSu on Facebook.
What a nice surprise on Saturday morning, when I opened my Facebook site and I saw there my picture on the poster of German National Kite Competition for the year 2014. I used to already be a poster girl of Kitesurf Trophy of the year 2013, but I didn’t expect that they will take my picture this year again.
Ok, ok they’ve made it totally diffrent so that You cannot really recognize my face but have look on the pictur from 2013… no doubts that’s me!
100% Fuerteventura lifestyle. Filmed one sunny December day, on Sotavento beach.
We were all very excited about having Ridley Scott, filming on Fuerteventura his new movie “Excodus”. I was often going to the places where they were currently shooting, hoping to see famous director himself. Unfortunatelly, army and Guardia Civil was preventing everybody to come to close to the stars. In spite of that I got some nice shots while I climbed the nearest mountain.
Anyway, we were very happy to have them here till……. they closed our lagoon for the whole week ( and that was a super windy week with onshore wind….. in other words the condition You don’t often have on Fuerteventura, specially in the winter time). Nacked tourist who love to stroll along the beaches of Sotavento, didn’t like it neither, there was even one funny action with a nacked guy jumping over fences and an army guy running after him… Anyway what is the most important now: Lagoon is again available for everybody!
Together with my Liquid Force mates from kiteboarding-fuerte, we took adventage of that and took some nice pics and videos.
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:
