PREMIERING FOR THE FIRST TIME! The Stoke Farm takes us on an incredible 22 minutes journey showing off what kiteboarding in Holland is all about, with all its highs and lows.
“Kiteboarding in Holland is a mission. We have a lot of water and a lot of wind. Not the typical trade winds: Low-pressure systems deliver cold, rainy and gusty conditions with winds coming from all directions. Scoring a good session means preparing with the forecast charts, scouting locations, and requiring a bit of luck. Sometimes it works out, and sometimes it does not.
This season we wanted to take you on a tour through our best spots with prime conditions. As always, the wind did not work out as planned. This shows what kiteboarding in Holland is! You always have to play with the cards you are dealt. But in this imperfectness also lies the beauty – The unexpected is the reason we fell in love with the sport in the first place.”
