So I finally got round to finishing the edit from our road trip round Sri Lanka. The perfect storm of laziness, being busy with work and following that up with a hard drive malfunction meant it kept being pushed back and other projects got done first, but here it is!
It's actually kind of nice I finished it today because this marks exactly one year to the day since we first arrived here :) so enjoy this little recap from the last year, with all the old friends and the new ones we made along the way .
Back to the island of St. Maarten where I use to live for 4 years. We moved there when I was 4 and when I turned 8 we moved back. I have so many great memories of this place and it's also where the foundation of my watersport career was laid. I got an invite of my pilot friend to come along and you can't really skip on an invite like that right?!

2017 Slingshot Ghost Whisperer Hydrofoil is one of the best on the market. We loved riding it and at $1399 it is a well priced all carbon foil. We have them in stock, but hurry as they are going out the door fast.
"When you find yourself at arms reach of a long awaited goal, with every step leading to that, a drop was shed, a drop of sweat, of tear, of joy, of salt water. Until it comes down to that very last one, 'Until The Last Drop', my road to a World Title in one magic minute." - Bruna Kajiya .

As children the Joubert brothers stumbled upon the amazing power of kites. They began to push the limits of snowkiting in its infancy and bringing the sport to the mountains of France. Pascal later brings the European style to the USA and influences a still growing movement. As the sport grows kiters around the world develop styles reflective of their terrain and weather pushing the sport to extreme heights but not without controversy.
