Welcome dear kitesurfer! This is a kitesurfing-related website containing spot-reviews, news, kitesurfing stories, buying guides and much more. It does not matter if you are ride wakestyle, freestyle, waves, “dingel-dangel”, or just chilling, you will all find something to read on this site (I hope). The kiteboard blog is a place where I can write everything I want about kiteboarding, and share my thoughts about this awesome sport and lifestyle.

I try to travel to kite spots as often as possible with my wife (she has a kitesurfing blog as well, but in Swedish). The sport or lifestyle kitesurfing never stops fascinating me, and I often want to write down everything I see, so a kiteboard blog was really needed for me. I just regret that I did not make it earlier. I have much memories from the days living on the west coast of Finland, where all the big beaches are located, that would fit very good in a kiteboard blog. Who knows, maybe I add the stories some day.
There are some reasons. First: I have friends in at least three languages, Swedish, Finnish, and English. English is the only language all of the people knows. Second, I like to compete. I like to compete with the big kiteboard websites about the visitors. And for reaching such a big audience as possible, you have to write in English. Now enjoy the kiteboard blog!

I was in KTA last year, and I have spoken to guys that knows the ones arranging KTE and various Wave-events in kitesurfing. There is always the same problem, to find a main sponsor for the events and even more critical, the tours. As a marketer myself I am very interested in different ways of […]

OMG, I want to test this. Just have to grow some balls, get a boat and convince a driver to take responsibility.. Anyway, in this video Jesse Richman was in Hood River, Oregon, and had a boat towing him up 790 feet. He then let go of the rope and flew down to the water, […]
The winter at the northern hemisphere is now just a memory, the sun is melting the snow, water is dripping from the roofs, there is romance in the air, bums and beggers are crawling out from their hideouts, and big water kitesurfing is up again in our amazing waves in Finland… Who the heck am […]
