My just-completed trip to Martinique was filled with a lot more adventure-themed fun than all of my previous 10+ visits here combined, most of it enjoyed out on the water. Kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, boating – my daily wardrobe choices never veered far from boardshorts, sunglasses and not much else.
Among the watersports fun I didn’t get to try: kiteboarding.
The footage shows Spanish/French actor José Garcia trying his hand at kiteboarding earlier this year alongside some of the sport’s top pros, all of them competing in the UNICEF Kite Academy Challenge.
When they weren’t riding the waves, Garcia and his friends enjoyed a lot of the same things I got to do, see, and explore on my last trip. Here’s hoping I can realize my kiteboarding dreams and more fully match our experiences next time I’m in The Isle of Flowers…
