    Strongest wind and BBQ

    July 27, 2018 in Turkey ⋅ ☀️ 30 °C

    Today it blew hard, 27 knots which is sort of the maximum you could get here. We were overpowered on our 10sqm which led to some nice jumps (and crashes).
    The left arm hurts badly but Yenal's worse, he cannot even hold a spoon with his right hand. Need to strengthen those muscles before the next trip, with more aggressive jumps and landings, it's becoming difficult to kite more than one hour and half per day.

    In the evening we had barbecue at Yenal' cousin's place. Fantastic meatballs, I love those!

    Early days

    July 22, 2018 in Turkey ⋅ ☀️ 34 °C

    Not much to say, it's the usual Akyaka routine with Yenal. Wake up, eat, kite, beer, work a bit, beer, poker, dinner, whisky, sleep.

    Yenal likes his fish so we went to his favorite restaurant on the first evening.

    That's all for today folks.

    This time it was close.

    July 20, 2018 in Turkey ⋅ ☀️ 32 °C

    I know! I haven't even finished the previous blog from Cabarete.. but this trip started so interestingly I could not stay quiet.
    What time do you wake up to catch a plane at 6:20? Some say 3:45, some say 4:00. But I say 5:10 and.... shit I am so fucked!!!
    5 minutes to get dressed, passport, lenses and finish packing then run in front of the Sheraton to get a cab. No cab!! I am sooo fucked!!
    57 minutes to departure, Prius arrives, I tell the driver "Dude I am so fucked, help me bro". He delivered, got me to the airport in 12 minutes...
    45 minutes to departure, I rush to the baggage drop off counter and say "Dude please help me". Dude did help me and added "No stress you had 3 more minutes!". Wow that was not close at all!

    First flight with Edelweiss left a great first impression, mucho better than those Eurowings clowns.. now on my way to the beach with all my bags (even that gopro I thought I had forgotten).

    Happy and relaxed. Of we go!

    Monday night, dull right?
    It's Karaoke night at VoyVoy! The place with no more than 3 customers any other day of the week is suddenly packed.

    A few brave (drunk?) souls and also some talents; hard to tell, sound is horrible anyway.

    Bottom line, it is not because it's Monday that.... not sure what I wanted to say.... cheers!

    25 knots and more

    May 20, 2018 in Dominican Republic ⋅ 🌬 27 °C

    The first few kiting days were crazy. While we expected 15-20 knots at most, we got 5 days of 25-30 knots from 1 to 6 pm. I think we got quite lucky!

    It is the first time I was fully depowered on my 10 meters kite and still could easily jump above 5 meters.
    The local champion (part of the Olympics team) was showing off with 12-15 meter jumps - it was very impressive to see it live.

    With a wind that strong (and gusty), I could not spend more than 2 hours per day in the water. And for the very first time my abs were sore after the second day.

    Paradise indeed

    May 16, 2018 in Dominican Republic ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    Sometimes things feel right from the beginning. This is one of those times. Great appartment, nice resort, beautiful view, sandy beach (oh really?), fresh fruits and coffee for breakfast - this is how life should be!

    10 minutes walk separate us from breakfast, exactly the right amount to wake up and get really hungry.
