Re: Travel location with girlfriend January/February

Consider Cape Town. For you - world class kiting. For the GF: art galleries such as the https://www.norvalfoundation.org/ and https://zeitzmocaa.museum/ .

North Evo, maybe Rebel..
+1 North Evo for nice yanky jumps and tight loops.

Rebel for long floaty jumps. Not so much for looping.

Re: Corona Virus - Has your country banned kitesurfing?

In the UK you are allowed out for 1 type/session of exercise per day. However, there is no non-essential travel allowed ... so no driving to the beach.

Re: New Woo jump record: 33.9m

When I got home I showered and I had sand stuck around the side of my eyeballs. I did get a screengrab from the Woo app and uploaded it to MS Drive. I added the link as a picture...

Re: Where to go for three weeks end of 2019 (Nov.-Dec.)?

Caribbean is better a bit later if you ask me - not that I have the full overview of all the Caribbean. Tanzania if that is Zanzibar is too early. Wind is better mid January.

Karen Hou is a local kitesurfer and rocks the Woo leaderboard. She runs a B&B / kite lodge on Penghu called "Sunrise B&B" ... highly recommended.

Re: Oil catastrophe NE Brazil - pls report affected beaches

I saw a few small pieces on the sea side of the bar at Barra Nova when I was there 23 Sep - 1 October. They were really tiny bits and not many of them. Sadly there was tonnes of plastic everywhere :-(
