The KJ Experience Mauritius
Just came back from another really amazing trip to Mauritius, however this time it was not for a competition or photo shoot, but instead to run my KJ Experience kitesurf & yoga courses, helping other passionate kiters progress in their kiting, and experience the magic of Mauritius and its waters. Something thats much more rewarding than getting on a podium, winning a trophy, or getting that classic image in a magazine, is helping others to feel the stoke of the sea and kiting, and experience the inner calm of yoga. Seeing others progress, trying new manoeuvres, pushing their limits, sharing experiences, feelings, wipeouts, then being united and calmed at the end of the day with a stretching, therapeutic yoga session in a beautiful environment , is really rewarding. My KJ Experience courses seem to attract very special, interesting people, kiters from all over the world, who I feel very blessed to have met and shared time with. Each and every one brings their own unique energy, personality, riding style, aims, and humour, which creates an amazing atmosphere on and off the water!
Thanks to all of you special people who participated on the recent course in Mauritius, and to my amazing sponsors North Kiteboarding and ION who allow me to push my own limits in the sea, riding with the most revolutionary, incredible equipment! In my bag for this trip was a North 9 & 7m Dice, which is the most awesome, ultimate kite for waves and freestyle, and the Pro series 5'11 and Select 135cm Twin tip. I also had my favourite purple ION hot shorty, Nova harness, and of course a fine selection of ION bikinis and board shorts!
The only other thing that was needed was wind, waves and sunshine, which Mauritius and mother nature gave us plenty of :-)
