Sumbawa - Lakey Peak 2011 - Cabrinha Drifter

Hello friends,

this year the trip to Lakey coincide with the transition of kites that I use from Ozone to Cabrinha.

The CAB Drifter is an excellent choice for Waves and I'm very happy to use them. We had a good trip for both waves and wind. I add some pics from 2010 when I did not get enough images to make a gallery. You should be able to spot them!!!


Many thanks to Mommet for the photos. see album

Sumbawa - Lakey Peak 2009 - Ozone Light XC

Hello friends,

another year is gone, after my annual trip to Lakey the kite season is definitely over... and we are already looking at the 2010 season!

October is not the good month in Sumbawa but still we got couple of good days!

With more and more years under our bells we can now confirm that the best months for Lakey for both swell and winds are August and September

Bali - Sanur - September 2009 - Ozone Zephyr 17m

Hello guys,

for the last week I have been testing the new Light Wind Kite from Ozone, the 17m Zephyr.

The kite is great and thanks to the low end I had a great day at Oka point, the outside reef of Sanur!

Wind was 8 to 12 knots from South that is very rare and makes the Waves there almost side shore..

The other kiter is Jonathan with a Light XC 14m.

Many thanks to Atsushi for the photos. see album
