Round the world kitesurfing trip

Postby barrybarryr » Sat Nov 12, 2011 12:58 pm

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

Wow! Good for you :thumb:

If I were you, I'd make a pilgrimage to Kite Beach ... and Hatteras ...

You have to add New Zealand into you wish list.

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