Unique and valuable kitesurfing podcast

I found this show looking for podcasts focused on my own favorite sport: kitesurfing. I appreciate a specific point of view, and Bjoern had the cool idea of going deeper into kiting by learning more about some of the most interesting destinations around the world for kitesurfing. He does a great job unearthing all of the details that you need to understand a spot. One of the great things about our sport is that we can do it in so many incredible places around the world – and this podcast is a great way to learn about some new ones! I'm aiming for Durban as part of my next trip to South Africa in early 2018!

Rank #2: EP4 Kitesurfing Chile / Matanzas -Bring your Wetsuit, Wind and Waves are taken care of. Interview with Mike from KITE CHILE

Podcast cover
Read more

The Humboldt current brings cold water up from the Antarctic, combine this with a high pressure system over the south pacific and warm weather over the Chilean land mass, and wind is guaranteed. In the summer months of the Southern Hemisphere this combination is almost a certainty so windy days are plenty. Add to this  a swell that originates 1000's of kilometers South, in the Antartica, and you have your perfect Kitesurfing destination. Matanzas offers several spots from beginners to expert wave riding, all within 20 Min drive, and on the rare none windy days to some SUP, surfing.,or some great wine tasting.

We talk to Mike from KITE CHILE who offers Guided Kietsurf Tours ( all Inclusive ) to Mantanzas.

Enjoy !!!

Rank #5: EP8-Wait!...What?...Where??- Wind- and Kitesurfing the Abrolhos Islands with Mick Steffan Indian Ocean Charters

Podcast cover
Read more

Count on the Australians to come up with some "kick ass” idea to go wind-and kitesurfing in some remote and “sick" locations. In this episode we take you to the Houtman Abrolhos Islands. They are located around 80 km west of the Geraldton ( mainland Australia) and next to getting very consistent strong winds, they also get a massive swell origination in the Southern Ocean. It is well known as the site of numerous shipwrecks, the most famous being the Dutch ships Batavia, which was wrecked in 1629, and Zeewijk, wrecked in 1727.The islands are uninhabited with the exception of some fisherman. As a tourist you are not allowed to stay on the islands so the only possibility is to stay on a boat. Every year Mick organizes a 3 days wind and kitesurfing “expedition” to the Islands for like minded fellow water-sports and wave addictes. We talk about the trip , what to expect, the wind conditions , some of the spots,  and some other interesting and funny topics.

ENJOY!!!!
