The Flying Carpet von Nobile is a must for every kite school. It's longer than the shortest kite instructor from Funboard Center Boracay and guarantees every kite student a save boardstart and the first floating ride experiences. All advanced kiteboarders go kiteboarding when the others are still waiting for the wind. Unmatched upwind performance, perfect grip and easy maneuvering benefits with a pleasant ride. It also makes the Flying Carpet easier and more fun to ride than any other kiteboard of it's size.

Windsurfing versus Kiteboarding

Submitted by Simone on Fri, 11/23/2012 - 13:23

Two month vaction ahead in Asia which also includes 5 weeks of windsurfing at Simone's Funboard Center Boracay in the Philippines. I met Simone many years ago in Greece where I used to have a windsurfschool. As we both are passionate windsurfers we stayed in touch over the years and met on different spots just to get a good ride together.

You could call me a "soul windsurfer" and I was always arguing that kite boarding is nothing for me: no time, too much fun windsurfing, to lazy starting all over again....
