Unique and valuable kitesurfing podcast

By Bdwelle - Sep 17 2017

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 !!!
