Hi,

So I've split up with my Mrs, sold our house, I'm fed up with being a slave to concrete and the monotony of work so I'm thinking of quitting my job and going on a round the world kite surfing trip.

Has anyone else done this? If so where are the must kite places that I should go to?

I guess Western Australia (I'll get a 12 month working visa), Cape Town and Brazil are a must.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Barry

Wind year round. Taranaki is one of the most consistant waves in the world.
