What is and why is the brand what you are riding the awesome and amazing kite? Did you ” stick” with your kitebrand since day1? Maybe you have changed your kite brand and you are riding something completely else these day’s?


Did you ever not enjoyed a kite brand? What did you do with the kite? Sold it to a new buyer with the story to him that it was a amazing kite:) :lol:

Basically tell me what your story is regarding the kite brands and why you believe in them?

Looking forward to these discussions and the “ego’ of the brands what rule the market, :rollgrin:

Kitesurfing At Siargao, Philippines.

This is your dream kiteboarding heaven for the months that us in the Northern Hemisphere normally spend sitting at home in the early,dark evenings in the cold watching the television.  We have great conditions from the Mid November until the end of March.  This place definitely needs to be on your ‘bucketlist’.

With beautiful white sandy beaches and great wind it is everyone’s dream to kiting in the lovely lagoon in Siargao, Philippines. This kiteboarding holiday destination in the Philippines is one to watch.  Then sit back and enjoy your Pina Colada on a pristine beach in between your kite surfing sessions and go back to ride the waves as Cloud 9 on the reef.  This is also a great destination for non kiters to visit alike.

It is the new Boracay – but less crowded.   I think everyone agrees that is tiresome ‘ducking under each other lines’ while you are kiting.

A lot of us all want that same feeling again that we had when we started kiting – An awesome energy that you build up and the explosion on the water to shoot you up in the sky like a rocket!.  Then you are up there, hanging in the sky and finishing with all the space to land your tricks or big air.  Nowadays, you often need to watch out where you will land your jumps in many kite destinations in the world.  Siargao, Philippines will give you that same kite energy along with more space to express yourself on the water.

After a great day riding, enjoy the sunset with a cold beer or cocktail in one of the many bars on this Philippine kite island and continue this with great food at Kermit kite-surfcamp.  This place is known for its amazing international dishes with a friendly atmosphere.

Great accommodation is key for your well deserved kite surfing holiday.  Kermit kite surfcamp has outstanding reviews on Tripadvisor and that made our decision easy to work together and give the kiters among us the optimal kite vacation.

Kermit accommodationSeabreeze kite club started in Sumatra, Indonesia, a pearl in the kiteboarding world and becoming more popular while we speak.  It is a kiteboarding destination which shares the same recipe as Siargao, Philippines.  Undiscovered but Oh, so beautiful.

Look us up and we look forward to sharing the same passion at  


How did you started with Kiteboarding?

What is it that attracts so many people to learn this sport?  Is it the sensation of flying or to be independent expressing yourself on the water?

I think we need to go back in time.  We all love to be on the water. It can be surfing, windsurfing etc.. but…. kite surfing is a different animal.  We can go cruising or ‘being shot like a rocket into the air’ and we can extend the surfing part in the waves without paddling into it.

Kiteboard student in Indonesia

Kiting is so diverse and is one of the biggest and fastest growing sports in the world.

I started kiteboarding 2007 when I saw an amazing colourful scene in the sky at Cabarete in the Dominican Republic and I wanted to be a part of it.  I took lessons at Laurel Eastman Kiteboarding because they were professional,approachable and very helpful.  I wanted to learn in safe conditions and liked that their instructors were all IKO qualified.  I since worked at Laurel’s school and learned a huge amount of knowledge that has helped me grow as an instructor and now an owner of my own school in Indonesia.

It is great to see new students with their huge smiles when they make the first meters.

You know that they are going to be ‘hooked’ for life!

How did you start?  And why did you start kiteboarding?  What has it done for you since that magical moment that the power of the kite took you out of the water?
