Aphrodite Resort

Overall a fantastic place with some priceless unspoilt kiting spots. With great people and food and cheap beer (they even come with a plate of chips as well if you’re lucky), you can't beat it. Northern Cyprus deserves attention but don’t tell everyone; we don’t want to spoil it with overcrowding like some of the more famous spots. Wind and Weather…

Kitesurfing Technique - Shifty to Blind
Shifty to Blind

This is a fun little gem, popular amongst the wake style fraternity, which can be done equally effectively hooked or unhooked. It’s a more unusual sight than the classic Raley to Blind and therefore should hopefully get you a few whoops from your peers. The best part of this move is that by preceding the blind with a shifty, you…
