Hello from Russia!

Postby CzP41004 » Wed Dec 13, 2017 10:11 am

Hi everyone!

I'm Olivier from Belgium. I discovered kitesurfing a couple years ago in the Alicante region with a couple friends met on holidays, and I've recently ordered new stuff (from a beginner pack...) to try on Crimean beaches now that I've moved there because of my job. I've joined the forum to learn more about how to use my gear and where the cool spots are, I'm mostly looking at Europe because, well, I'm an EU citizen. Russian beaches are nice but overcrowded, since you've got a big population and a tiny holiday-friendly coastline, and you end up slaloming between people...

Welcome Olivier!

Besides summer the beaches should be empty in Crimea, no?
