Top 3 kitesurfing spots?
1. Mejvodnoe, Crimea, Russia for sure one of the best places in my country. here is warm, flat water, pretty cheap and a couple of hand made sliders for having fun every day.
2. Taiba, Brazil as for everyone else. It's real kiteboarding gym with perfect conditions.
3. Col du Lautaret, France is my favorite place for snowkiting. It's a small canyon surrounded by huge mountains with plenty of opportunities to ride. Hills, kickers, powder, 1 minute flights and windy almost every winter day!
