You can get infection not only orally, but after damaging your skin (think of lots of sea urchins, coral reefs, etc.). After this you get few days sick, temperature and antibiotics — that sucks a lot.
Don't know why, but it does not stink now (end of March), but had very bad smell in January/February.
Overcrowded and choppy — you can avoid this, if you kite from sunrise 6am to 8am. Water is flat like glass and very few kiters out there.
To find not overcrowded place, man should go to undeveloped "wild" spots with small infrastructure, no hotels/schools on kitespot. Is it possible to find fully packed kitesurfing infrastructure, no-wind activities, hotels in 20m from beach, and still empty beaches? I think its not possible at all.
Lots of empty beaches close to Boracay. For example, Union Bay just 30 minutes from Boracay. No people, clean flat water, no infrastructure, only one kiteschool.
