Meg has been sending several reports while she is taking some much needed R&R.
It was a busy Christmas and New Year period on the kiting front with plenty of students leaving as happy new kitesurfers. The easterly trade winds allow for perfect conditions and the sand flats provide the ideal environment with no obstacles and miles of shallow water to master kite flying and board start skills. As one student commented, “everything was perfect…all in all it was an incredible trip and kiting was my favourite part” (Mickey Syrquin, Dallas).
We’ve also had fantastic surf and some awesome paddle board and surf kayak sessions in beautiful clean waves at the sweet right-hander just 200 ft off the island. The volleyball matches have been in full swing with the local staff and guests playing every evening at sunset. We of course did a bit of celebrating…costume party on Christmas Eve, everyone got involved and we had a fun afternoon making costumes for both kids and adults…everyone got creative, we even built ourselves a Christmas tree from palm leaves. There were also a few evenings on the Vela deck and around our fab new table under incredible stars. It has been a great holiday period in the sun.
