Zwei Destinationen dieses mal - Jeder der in den Vereinigten Staaten und Kanada an der Westküste kiten gehen möchte kann diese beiden Reiseziele sehr gut miteinander kombinieren:
Hood River (USA):
When it comes to kiteboarding, Hood River is most definitely a hot spot. But it's unique - you're riding in a river, surrounded by rocky mountains, lush green forest, and a rainbow of kites on the windy summer days. Hood River is home base to many American pro kiteboarders including Colleen Carroll, Craig Cunningham, and Brandon Scheid.
The American head offices of several kite brands like North, Slingshot, and Liquid Force are all here! In summer, this spot brings kiters from around the world to have a go in the slider park, participate in one of the many summer events like Bridge of the Gods and Kiteboard 4 Cancer, and enjoy lit sessions with this incredible backdrop.
En Squamish (Canada):
On the west coast of Canada, somewhere between Vancouver and Whistler on the Sea to Sky Highway is the town of Squamish - a natural paradise that lures adventurers from around the world. This hidden gem happens to be one of Canada's most beautiful kiteboarding spots.
Most kiters have some difficulty seeing the appeal of riding in a glacier-fed river... but the only way to know is to go. These towering mountains, the thick forest, and the cold water are all part of the package.
Those brave enough to face the challenge will have the reward of kiting in an intensely beautiful destination. It’s hard to put into words the magic of this spot.
