Get a kick from kite-surfing

Although many beach-goers dislike the wind, kite and windsurfers live for the powerful force. Cut through the salt water in the Dominican Republic on a kite surfboard. Or practice your best Kiteloop or Backroll on the smooth surface of the Dutch lakes. Do you prefer to surf with a sail? Then Zanzibar is your destination for windsurfing. Or book a surfing holiday on the Leeward Island of Bonaire and admire the beautiful coastline from your surfboard in the Caribbean Sea. With luck you may even share the water with some dolphins. Awesome dude!
