CYCLONE OMA | Overpowered on a 5-meter KITE! | VB#8 2019
Karolina Winkowska just dropped her latest vlog from Eastern Australia, and in this episode, she shares her kiteboarding experience during Cyclone Oma. Karolina talks us through the what to keep an eye out for when kiteboarding during a storm, hurricane or cyclone.
I am a professional kiteboarder, and I ride 200 days a year. I’m very familiar with my equipment, and I had experienced hardcore kiteboarding conditions in the past. That being said, kiteboarding during cyclone OMA was a big surprise for me, as winds reached 50 knots! The second day, the wind dropped to 35knots, and made it possible for me to use my smallest 5m kite, and enjoy big waves!
It’s not very often that you can ride such big waves, and thus it was a great opportunity to give it a go and shred it:)
