As most of you know or can read and see on this weblog, kiting is our family-shared passion. Since we came back to live on Bonaire at the end of April, we spent as much time on the water as we could. The feeling of riding the crystal green-blue waters at kitespot Atlantis, the numerous encounters with turtles while kiting, the spotting of and sometimes riding with dolphins, the progression we make, the joy of being on the water with all four of us, the fun people of the kite community of Bonaire, the friends who visit us to share this passion, the great events that take place.
Recently the boys teamed up with two great kite brands; Blade Kiteboarding and Lieuwe Boards. They are now kiting with ‘Blade’s new freestyle machine: the Mist, an action packed C-kite’. First experiences are excellent and they are really really really looking forward to more wind so they can challenge and test their Mist further. More recently the new Lieuwe boards arrived on the island too. Lieuwe creates high quality handcrafted custom kite boards. Together with Jan, Mark and Ties designed their own freestyle ‘Lieuwe Shotgun’, ‘a light board with a great upwind performance that features an immense pop’. Perfect.
Our boys developing themselves as kiters in the beautiful surroundings of Bonaire plus the dad who can create awesome pictures and movies of this process: an ideal combination for starting this cooperation with Blade and Lieuwe!
