Ever wondered just how high you’re jumping when hitting the waves? Well, thanks to the excellent people at Woo Sports, these speculative beachside arguments can finally be resolved!

Whilst the public perception of kiteboarders might be of young guys and girls, in reality you’ll find people of all ages and backgrounds hitting the waves, even mums!

Boys have it so easy when it comes to watersports, don’t they? To get out onto the waves all they have to do is throw on a pair of shorts, grab their boards of choice and go. As for us girls, we have to worry about keeping our modesty intact while we’re on the water; while each huge barrel carries…

Here at Explora, we’re all huge fans of yoga; you’ll find most of us perfecting our poses when we aren’t on the waves, and we incorporate yoga classes into many of our surfing and kitesurfing camps too. But why do we love yoga so much? The tranquillity of a yoga practice may seem at odds with the thrilling exhilaration of…
