The Far East Tales (Philippines TV trailer)

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!

Knee Injury

As most of the people who practice any kind of extreme sport you always have the possibility of getting injured and its part of the game, you gotta pay to play. Two weeks ago I came back from France and Tarifa was spoiling us with perfect winds, I kited everyday together with some of the Top PKRA riders and feeling really confortable with my riding landing all my doubles again and doing some more powered tricks till one day in the lagoon while filming for a new movie I broke my meniscus and stretched some of the ligaments in my Knee, I first didn’t really know what was going on but then I realized something went wrong… Alvaro and Ewan, who were at the lagoon filming came to help me and we went straight to the hospital, ones we arrived the doctor said that i only had my ACL a bit stretched and that it was gonna be OK, i already had some bad experiences at the hospital of Tarifa so me and my mom decided to see a specialist that would do a Scan and really see what was going on. When we finally had the results it was a bit worse than what we thought, my meniscus was completely squashed and some of my ligaments were stretched, he directly said that I needed an Operation for it not to hurt anymore because a meniscus can’t really get repaired and they would have to remove some of it.
Now I am back from the surgery, 6 weeks no kiting 😦 that really sucks but I will be back stronger than ever!
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!

When it really blows…

I went out to sea today, the waves were high and a big wind was blowing from the Atlantic. Could hardly hold the kite, but the jumps were higher than ever. Adrenalin!
