Kiteboarding holidays: Plan it. Book it. Share it


Kiteboarding is taking off! But with more people than ever interested and more destinations, where do you get advice on the best spots and deals?

Kiteboardingholidays.com pulls together all the kiteboarding holidays you could ever imagine. Rammed with courses, short trips, day activities and full-on two-week kiteboarding holidays, it covers the planet.

From Albania to Vietnam and Antigua to Indonesia, this site lets you search by region, country, or type of holiday. And with a new blog bringing some excellent posts, it's a site to check out.

All trips and experiences are certified 'Adventurous' and the site's hooked part of the AdventureSportsHolidays.com network of sites . So, if you're staying with PDC and fancy some inland time and adventure holidays in Mexico that don't involve the sea, you can easily check these out too.

And if that wasn't enough, it's all run by people who love kitesurfing and adventure sports, not by the huge tour companies. So expect a love for the sport not found elsewhere.

Check us out!

EPIC JUDGE C KITE 2012 PROTOTYPE



An other day at windy Hatteras, North Carolina, and could try today the EPIC Judge 8m, still a prototype tho, so I think the design of this kite is not the final one, not sure about it!
That was a great session in 20+ knots, very powerfull kite, very solid in the air, some bar pressure but not too much, just enought to know exactly where the kite is!
I let it fall ones and could relaunch it in no time without swimming toward the kite, just pulling one of the back line!
There were no briddles, just very short V front connexion lines.

Here are a few pictures taken during this session.

The SBC Kiteboard test team ranked the Epic Renegade as the best relaunching kite. (Head-to-head Surf Test, Issue 12.1)

Highlights
• Fast water relaunch with Delta shaping
• Simple performance for beginner to advanced
• Stable shape with good range and gust absorption
• Wave-rider approved with quick pivotal turns

The Renegade is the freestyle/wave kite of the Epic kite line that excels at powered Kite Loops, and has ideal depower for waves and smooth, lively, responsive steering. With just three sizes in the kite range, the 11, 9 and 6 m, the Renegade delivers simple and reliable performance in a wide range of conditions and disciplines.

Playacar Fase 1 Kiteboarding Area.

Thanks to few Local Riders from Playa del Carmen area, Solidaridad, Ayutamiento, Zofemat, la AKQR(Asociacion de Kitesurfing de Quintana Roo) y PDCK( Playa del Carmen Kiteboarding School) we finaly could install the "Rules and Area map" sign on the beach of Playacar Fase 1 in Playacar Residential Area, Playa del Carmen, Mexico.

From Playacar Fase 1 Kiteaboarding Area


The Launching and Landing zone is located about 300 meters south of "Xaman Ha condominio" beach and authorized the kites up to 25m north and 25m south of the sign.

While on the beach, the kites have to be parked the closest to the sign as possible and lines must be rolled up onto the bar.

While riding, keep your distance from shore( about 50m away from the shore line), do not jump or practice tricks close to shore to avoid disturbing or molesting the other beach users.
RESPECT OTHERS!

This new area is open for EXPERIENCED/ INDEPENDENT RIDERS ONLY! You have to be able to ride upwind to start and end up your session within the designated area.
Evaluate the wind condition first, if it won t be strong enough to allow you riding upwind.......DON T EVEN TRY!

If you plan to go for a Downwind ride, make sure you look up the map to choose your landing area/beach!

We remember you that one of the condition we have to follow in order to keep this area open to Kiteboarding is that NO TEACHING WILL BE PERMITED in the designated area!

Please contact the AKQR to know about the different Kiteboarding schools in Quintana Roo or pdckiteboarding@gmail.com about Kiteboarding in Playa del Carmen.
