Re: [ksurf] Re: kite surf trip to venezuela
- we'd fly (30 min) from caracas to los roques and stay there on a sailboat
which would take us around the archipelago. we'd live on it during this
time. also there are several "posadas" (small hotels) on the bigger islands.
there are a couple of well known kitesurf spots (ie Madrisqui/ dos
mosquises) close to Gran Roque (where aircraft usually land) but there are
about 50 islands and 200 keys in los roques so it's very likely there are
many other good spots.
this is all in planning stage, im working out the details in the next couple
pd. no problem with females!
