Last winter we decided to explore a new spot for kitesurfing: Watamu in Kenya. It’s not an exaggeration that this place is truly amazing! Not only that it offers perfect kite conditions … also the surroundings, the landscapes and the culture are so worth to discover.
It don’t need many letters to describe our latest trip to Africa – cause I think this video shows so much more impressions than words can ever give. Just to note: It was awesome, breathtaking and unforgettable – and to be honest, I immediately want to go back!

Kitesurfing in Kenya – Watamu 2017
Summer, sun, kitesurfing – it’s the perfect happy-combo! Unfortunately not for our hair and skin … UV-radiation, water and salt can cause irreversible damage to them. So they need more attention and extra care. Of course the hair topic affects rather women than men. But nobody gets around protecting his skin from the sun! In the last few years I spent many weeks in the summer heat for kitesurfing – and so I had enough time to try different sun- and hair care strategies & hairstyles and to collect tips from others. So I could create my personal top combo for skin and hair. Et voilá, here it is!
Nowadays kitesurfing is declared as fun sport. So as the definition says, it’s fun. I totally agree. Of course, otherwise I wouldn’t do it! However some underestimate that kitesurfing under certain conditions is still what it was in its early years: an extreme sport. And extreme sport is dangerous. Or can be dangerous, depending on how one looks at it.
Though modern safety systems are incomparable to those in the initial years of kitesurfing (depower was non-existent or very low, and Quick release was also not really developed) unfortunately there are still tragic accidents. It happens that kitesurfers get badly injured or even die. Of course such incidents are frightening and can lead to doubts – on the one hand one absolutely wants to try kitesurfing, on the other hand he’s afraid.
