is it so strange that that people from europe would want a kite show in one of the most favoured destinations for kitesurfers from europe.
i think you guys in maui must buy all that spiritual home of kitesurfing shit they peddle to the press about the islands.
Well,I hate to bring it up,but,Egypt, its in the Middle East right?
Many people are nervous about traveling to such destinations.
This spot must have something real good going for it. I will check it out.
Maui is without doubt the Spiritual home of Kitesurfing !
However,this does not mean that it is the best place
Its often TOO windy,not many spots.Restricted launches,crowds,etc.
The history,development and soul can not be denied !
I have seen many places with much better conditions,wider beaches,more room,shallow water,steady winds.
Florida,Cabarete and Australia come to mind.
I wish I could spend my time traveling to all the different hot spots on the Globe !
But Maui is special,as an Energy Centre
