Barbuda Kite Playground
From the Bahamas to Barbuda, Blake Olsen heads off on another island adventure to the Barbuda Ocean Club to put on a show for their guests. Check out the action in this short clip from Blake at MAC Kiteboarding.
“Barbuda and Antigua is a two-island nation in the West Indies. They are separated by thirty-nine miles of water dividing the Atlantic Ocean from the Caribbean Sea. Antigua is a beautiful island with mountains and city life, whereas Barbuda is a flat desert island with secluded beaches with rustic pink sand beaches.
On the first of February, I left the Bahamas and headed to Barbuda for an event at the Barbuda Ocean Club. It is a private resort on the southern tip of the island that is currently under development. The whole PLH (Peace Love & Happiness) crew put on the most incredible event for the small group of guests interested in buying there.
They put on a freestyle kite competition, organized downwinders, had daily yoga, boot camp, boat tours, spearfishing, fishing, paddle boarding, e-foiling, sea bobs, and pretty much any water toy, boat accessory you could imagine. At the awards ceremony, points were given to the people that participated in each of the activities. In the end, the person with the most activities won. That is what these sports are all about, just having fun and enjoying it all. It’s really not about the competition, it’s about making the most of the experience and participating in the activities with an open mind. You never know until you go, when you go, then you’ll know. Try something new and see what you think.”
