Hi there everybody,
My name is Kara, I’m 25, from South Wales and I will be instructing with Wind Riders in the 2012
season. I have only kited for around 3 1/2 years now but have spent a lot of my time travelling in
South America, the Caribbean and other places following the wind during that time. Before I started
my travels I studied languages and so teaching kiting around the world allows me to combine all my
passions – languages, kiting and meeting new people. I also ski, SUP and surf a little… love fresh fruit
and making cocktails with it (as I also double up as a bar manager)!
I look forward to meeting some of you guys when I rock up in May!
See you soon

The snow season has started.
Italy has some beautiful snowkite spots. They are spacious and offer lots of touring posibilities. Because they are so spaces kiting with a normal tube kite is possible. Offcourse nice snowkite from Ozone is easier. You can launch and land more independent. But also with the tube kites you will be able to explore areas you can only walk to or snowkite to!
Join Wind Riders on a tour or take a lesson to get into Snowkiting.
Mika is all winter in Italy, ready to take you to the nicest spots. End of February Wind Riders is organizing a snowkite camp. Join us on the snowkite adventure!

My name is Sam, and I will be part of the instructors team for the upcoming season. Just a little bit about me : I’m 28 years old, and i’ve been kitesurfing for as little as 6 years now. I am an all-around kiteboarder for I like to do some freestyle as much as wavestyle but also foilboarding and mountaiboarding ( which is in my opinion underrated ). I’m currently learning italian the proper way, and I hope I ‘ll be fluent speaker by the time I will arrive at lake garda. I’m looking forward to be a kiteboarding instructor in France which require a state diploma. As for my hobbies aside from kitesurfing I like video editing and picture editing as much as playing guitar.
Hope to see you soon at lake garda !

Mika was so kind to let me tell something about my great Vietnam adventure on the Wind Riders website.
For my internship during my sportmanagement study I headed of to lake Garda in spring 2010. I started kiting, became an Iko-assistant, and ended as a IKO-kitesurfinstructor in 6 months time. Now, almost 2 years later after my adventure at Windriders, I’m at the best kitespot of Vietnam.
The conditions for kitesurfing are really good overhere! De wind is blowing here almost every day from 10 until 35 knots and more. With mainly sideshorewind the spot is good for waveriding and the watertemperature is around twenty degrees.
Next to that is Mui Ne a really nice place to stay en therefore well known by backpackers. There are a lot of restaurants and bars around en there are enough possibilities to experience other events besides kitesurfing. The White and Red Sanddunes, the stunning fishing village and even the Mekong Delta is reachable from Mui Ne. Life in Vietnam is quite cheap. Breakfast, lunch and dinner doesn’t have to cost you more than 7 euro’s a day.
Do you want to learn kitesurfing this European Winter I can definitely reccomd you Mui Ne. Also for het more experienced riders this place is an excellent for a kite holiday.
Do you want to learn kitesurfing in Mui Ne, rent gear, book accommodation, or do you have any other questions? Don’t hesitate to contact me!
