Germany and more.

Hi!
Normally i hate to start my posts like this but now it has been almost 2 month since I haven’t posted anything and my blog deserves a welcoming start of the summer.
Lets get back to the important part of this, about 1 week ago I started kiting a bit, taking it easy but its always feels amazing to get salty again after 3 month of knee injury, after a couple of days on the water the PKRA contacted me to help them out in Germany with the live streaming, I booked my flights and of I went to check out how my comp buddy’s were doing, at first it was hard and strange not to feel the stress of the competition but after I just got really motivated to train for the next season. In Germany I got to see Aaron and it was cool to hang with him for a day, talking about how much injuries suck and that we could’t wait to get back there.
Now I am sitting at the airport in Zurich waiting for my flight for Malaga, this weekend I am helping to organize a fun invitational in Tarifa, if you are around from the 19th till the 22nd of July you should come and check some sick action!!
Peace!

Back to the Roots

After an amazing trip in the Philippines it was quite hard to get back on routine, but slowly i started getting back to the reel world and study for my upcoming exams next week. I’ve been in Tarifa now for almost 3 weeks and it has been pretty cool, i had a chance to see all my homies and hang a bit with them, also edit some videos (new video coming up very soon), bit of emails, study and all of that “boring” part of life, but it always has to be done. In terms of wind Tarifa hasn’t really been that good, I had a couple of good poniente sessions to get used to the “cold” wether and stick some of the tricks i learned in the Philippines.

Back in the Philippines we did lots of filming, theres gonna be 10 episodes coming out online after “The Revolution” film (check my previews post to know more about that) and a 26 min video edited by stance that will be sold to the TV in France. We have lots of projects going on, so much that i sometimes forget half of them!
I want to talk a bit from the last place we stayed in the Philippines, its called Cagayan Valley, its a huge land owned by the Senator who invited us there and he wanted us to discover a place that could have lots of potential in kiting, so we decided to check it out and it was incredible, we had so much support for anything we wanted to do, we were treated like kings haha 2 huge houses with private pool in each of them, 24 hours room service, driver, Casino, lots of great food, wonderful place and most importantly the kiting was just perfect, flat water with waves on the outside, wind for 9 meters almost everyday and i could keep on telling but i dont want to make you to jealous 😛 I will post some pics from the place and its definitely a place to check out in the future, now they are working on some kite facilities and new places to stay so stay tuned, anyway the place will be visible on our episodes.

On the 18th of March i will be leaving to Dakhla to film and train for the PKRA, really looking forward to that.
Peace!

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.
