I had no idea what to expect heading over to Ukraine, but this setup was insane πŸ™Œ Big thanks to Extrem Style Kite Club, Federation of kiteboarding and surfing of Ukraine and KITE CLUB Odessa for inviting me to check out the Ukraine kiteboarding championships πŸ™ I had a blast! πŸš€πŸ€™

Kiting pipeline can always be such a tease. There's days with wind and no swell, there's the days that are good but too crowded and there's the days like this where the waves are perfect but the wind is just a fraction to onshore. Here's a few snippets from what was still an incredibly fun session but the wind wouldn't let me into that perfect one I've always dreamed of! Next time I'm ready! πŸ‘ŠπŸ»

A couple months back myself and @moonawhyte jumped on board the #cabrinhaquest for what was an incredible trip up the inside of #fraserisland and out to the islands at the start of the Great Barrier Reef. β›΅οΈπŸThis was just one of the many highlights from a quick day trip on land on Fraser. Still in disbelief of the water clarity and colours at this freshwater lake πŸ˜³πŸ’¦

Man I love kiting's ability to turn average waves for surfing into a hell of a lot of fun! A kite can let you generate as much speed as you want no matter how small it is πŸš€ Good times in Dakhla from a couple weeks back πŸ€™

Making the most of some lighter wind and the first day with water in the lagoon here in #fuerte. Not deep enough for fins but that doesn't mean you can't have fun without! πŸ‘ŠπŸ»
