Arriving in Noordjik, with the expectations of a normal kite event, I was greeted by an event with a different focus. Fun!!
And fun it was, with a great vibe on the beach and wind to entertain the large crowds on the beach, the Kiteboarding open seemed to be a success on all fronts. I met up with some Peter Lynn team members, talked about all the new developments and shared some of our experiences with each other and with the public.
Most noticeable at this event was the stage on the beach. Of course, always traveling with kites and guitar, I ended up jamming some tunes as the sun went down.
Only one negative aspect for me, and note to self: “Never go to Holland without a full wetsuit”! The first day I froze in my East coast of south africa suit… Thanks to Marjin from peter Lynn for lending me his suit for the remaining 2 days! But by the time I left, the weather was warming up again.
On my last day I tested some prototypes which I will tell you more about in my next post…
Next destination, Italy, with test kites in tow.
