Thu, 28 Jun 2018 17:50:12 +0000

When you think of a tropical destination with superb conditions for kitesurfing, Maui is one of those places that will always make you a better rider.

Once hailed the best island in the world, Maui is also often considered the world's windsurfing capital; a place where wind-and-water sports enthusiasts put their skills to test.

But it is also one of the birthplaces of kiteboarding. The world's first kite competition was held in Maui, in September 1996, and won by Marcus "Flash" Austin.

Nick Jacobsen is not a fan of competition. Instead, he prefers to inspire people through life-threatening, one-off projects.

This time, he joined the Kitesurfing Armada for a side-off event that involved colored smoke, similar to what the military uses for signaling landing or target zones.

Twenty-four hours after watching David Hastilow, and friends performing a kite formation display that included red, white and blue smoke, the Danish kiteboarder decided to do the same... towed by a boat.

When we talk about maps, it's safe to say that details matter. A lot.

In 2010, a German surfer named Simon Schuetz was searching for a world map with the best surf spots, but he didn't find what he was looking for.

That's when he decided to found Awesome Maps, a startup based between Berlin and Bali that makes illustrated world map posters for the active traveler.
