Kiteboarding the Grenadines – Adventure 06

We Kiteboard Salt Whistle Bay as well as the Tobago Keys. Hands down some of the best locations to kiteboard in the eastern Caribbean! We stop by Bequia and buy a 4 pound lobster. Then continue on overnight to Martinique where we stock up on french cheese, baguettes, and wine. Note: Fuel problems are now […]


Where has the time gone…

Well we are so far behind in telling tales of our journey, it’s daunting to catch up. We have been flying through the Eastern Caribbean Islands working our way south. Destination: Grenada. Deadline: July 5th.  Just over a month ago we left the virgin islands and we have been moving almost non-stop since. We have […]


Flying Pigs & Work

The Exumas:  “Sapphire blue water. An exotic collection of dream destinations.” That’s how the travel brochures describe the place we call home. We’re fortunate to be here. Very fortunate. We don’t realize it at times. We grow immune to it very quickly. This past week I’ve spent almost every single waking hour working. That’s right. I’m sitting […]


Sailing Innovation

The sailing world is just full of innovation these days…. foils, kites, kite boats, foiled kite boats. Awesome.  


Anniversaries & Kiteboarding

Well here we are at the end of another summer. It has been one of the most amazing summers for myself; Self employment, flexible hours, happy clients and kiteboarding. To say I am grateful would be an understatement.   To top it all off, Ashley and I celebrated our Anniversary with a trip to Nitinat […]


Kites & Bears

Kiteboarding – The most amazing sport invented to date. You can surf, jump or just ride. I can’t put into words how awesome this sport is. I get shivers up my spine just thinking about how great this last weekend was. By far the most fun I’ve had in years. The closest comparison I’ve thought […]


Best Kiteboarding

Another successful weekend learning to kiteboard at the best kiteboarding location. I was out on the water for  a few hours and it seemed like just 30 minutes. You get in this zone while out on the water. It’s awesome. Sounds corny but wind and water hitting your face, surfing the occasional wave and a constant battle to […]


Wanted – Wind for Kiteboarding

Pretty good but slow weekend. Fed the Kiteboarding addiction and headed back to Nitinat for another couple days of riding. Lack of wind turned that into 1 hour of riding at the end of Sunday. The wind gods were not willing.   Good times all around tho. Brother in-law plus new girlfriend made for plenty […]


Holy Shit. That was an awesome day

Yesterday I headed up to Nitinat lake, for some of the best Kiteboarding around. Ashley and I had taken kiteboarding lessons in the Philippines during our December vacation and I’ve been hooked ever since. Unfortunately there isn’t a place to learn safely around Victoria during the winter months because it’s too windy, cold and dangerous. […]
