Children Of the Revolution in the Philippines

Just came back from the Philippines and there is so much to say about it, here is a little sneak peak & the rest you will see in the videos coming soon:

So after a trip in Fuerteventura my mate Thomas Paris told me i should book my ticket to the Philippines and thats what I did, after a stressful 4 days organizing my trip I finally arrived. I didn’t really know what to expect but as soon as I arrived in Boracay things started to change. Me and the Children of the Revolution participated at the funboard cup, it was really fun and i ended up 3rd in Freestyle.

After the comp, the COR crew and Normeth (she organized everything for us in the Philippines) had a talk and we decided to escape the party and people in Boracay and focus on the video production we had planned to do, so we went to Union Bay were we found a perfect flat water location, we decided to do a heli shot there and it turned out pretty good!
After 3 days hitting kickers, kiting all day long and enjoying the spot we traveled to Sabang because Thomas definitely wanted me to check the spot out and he told me we would surf and kite all day in a spot were no one has ever kited before, so 3 days after union bay we arrived in Sabang, it was a very local little village in the region of Vigan, we were staying in a huge house just meters of a perfect breaking wave, i was amazed by this wonderful place! We filmed, surf, kite for 11 days and then moved to Cagayan Valley, the Senator sponsored us the stay there (5 star hotel, private Casino, room service 24h a day, etc) they wanted us to check a spot that never no one kited and by our surprise it was perfect!
All the trip was captured on video, we got 500gb of stunning images so stay tuned cause this year you will see lots of the Philippines around the internet!
I really want to Thank all my sponsors, especially Másmovil, Kitaddict, Prolimit for making this trip possible, Normeth for organizing everything, Theresa and of cours all the Children Of the revolution for this awesome time, I’m glad to be part of this 😉
I did some screen grabs of some of the images that resume what i said in this post, check the slide show.

My kite fascination started in 2002 with Jaime Herraiz as my first hero and have been flying on the beach kiting ever since, mimicking every possible move in any wind. I was not allowed to kitesurf until I was ripping waves in plain surfing (Tarifa winter waves) and I got my sealegs! (Antibes-Athens on Schooner summer 2006) I've been Kite surfing since June 2007 I love to Surf, Skate and Indo Board and Ski. I enjoy video editing, music and of course spending time with all my friends. I am playing with a number of tricks at the moment (when the wind is thermic from the west - 'Poniente') I perfecting my: - KGB with tweaked grap - Powering up my tricks - trying to get more control on blind landings - Higher kung-fu and air-passes - better back mobes and front mobes I'm currently I'm learning: - doubles When the wind is hard from the east (Levante wind) I love free riding and going for big and bigger megaloops with graps. My plans for the future is to travel to all the cool spots, meet more friends, and reach the highest point. I like to make freeriding movies and kite and surf forever!
