3 Best Places to Kite SurfLike0

Kite-surfing has always been such a favorite hobby of mine. That’s why when I met Charline from Mauritus, I immediately jumped to the opportunity to have her on Travel Junkie Diary!

1397593_10152078780861177_946406077_oCharline has been kite-surfing for almost 4 years now and is now an official licensed IKO Level 2 kite-boarding instructor since 2011 and recently moved to Dubai and is now working in the first and only officially licensed kite-surfing school in Dubai (Kitebeach , Jumeirah area).

Here is the list by Charlene Michel

3 best places to kite surf

1. Zanzibar Island  Set against the stunning background of endless blue Indian Ocean, beautiful white beaches and an African village where the peace of life seemingly hasn’t changed for over fifty years.The reef is far off-shore, after ample flat water, perfect for beginners and freestyle.The reef itself offers amazing waves for the more experienced kite-surfer. I truly believe Zanzibar is a truly unique place in the world to combine this extreme sport, with relaxing and discovering the raw beauty of this relatively untouched island.

Not the most popular sport for kite-surfing but with a huge turquoise flat lagoon, sheltered by the reef, easily navigable inside the reef, with wide area where you can stand with water at waist, and some waves only on the reef – ideal for beginners, freestyle wanting to improve, or those who want to learn wave riding!  All of this in a breathtaking landscape!

3. Le Morne (South east of Mauritius Island). This spot reunites all the ideal conditions for Kite-surfing in Mauritius, wind, shallow warm turquoise water, all year round sunshine and waves.…A gorgeous landscape with Le Morne mountain as a background ,the kite lagoon is a perfect spot to start kite-surfing (waist deep water and 300 days of wind per year!). The more experienced can kite surf on “La Pointe” beach. This beach will allow you rapid access to the various wave spots, Manawa, Oneye, Chameau, Little Reef and other small areas within the lagoon.The wind direction is side shore. Ideal for freestyle and wave riders.

  • From road trips to sailing across the Balkans. There were definitely some days that were extremely challenging from driving long distances to sailing for days around Croatia, but I've had an incredible adventure, made new friends and memories. I'm posting an article tonight on everything you need to know if you are traveling to Montenegro for the first time tonight online. Thank you @flydubai for flying me to Tivat smoothly! Im now back in Beirut for a few days 🎶💃🏼!! Have a wonderful weekend everyone and thank you to all who messaged me and checked on me during my ⛵️🛵🚘.

  • Celebrate quitting the job that was killing your soul 🌊💕
  • Day 10: Sailing for two weeks across the Balkans/Dalmatia - I'm feeling so far away from everything... The scariest thing about distance... is that you don’t know whether they’ll miss you or forget you when you're gone.
It's bittersweet 💕
  • King's landing 🏰 (I couldn't find a better caption it was stuck in my head the whole time!!!) 😊
  • I worked out what would make me happy, and I worked out what I wanted to do, and I trained myself to do the job that would make those two things happen. 'You make it sound so simple.' He said
'It is simple,' she said. 'The thing is, it's also a lot of hard work. And people don't want to put in a lot of work. But I didn't get here simply by wishing for it.'
  • A fortified village dating back to the 15th century with stories and legends, the island of Sveti Stefan and the beautiful @amansvetistefan
  • The largest lake in Southern Europe. Skadar Lake, 70% in Montenegro, fully protected as National Park - 30%  being in Albania.
