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....

Sad news for kitesurfing on Boracay

Submitted by Simone on Mon, 11/12/2012 - 06:17

One of the best entertainment and viewy sports in the world as kitesurfing has been removed from the Olympic programme for Rio 2016. This is a huge disappointment for all the kitesurfers worldwide who have been training hard since it was announced last May that kitesurfing was going to take part in the Olympic games. What a shame too for all the windsurfers who spent the last year training to compete in kitesurfing. Boracay Island has also support local kiteboarders to make their biggest dream reality. A bitter blow for everybody involved...
