Real life outside Instagram ๐Ÿค“๐Ÿ˜‚ Am a gear head. Bottom line, since the day i started riding a board, I love tinkering with gear. Most people hate the idea that you have to deal with so much gear with #kiteboarding but I actually really love it.
Enjoying the last week of #Amihan here in Pamalican paradise and making sure all our kites are ready to be stored in tip top shape ๐Ÿ’œ

The real hereos of the kite season are these two. Started piloting last season. Learned to ride exactly dec. 3, 2018 and now doing jumps, backrolls, transitions, interisland downwinders and certified IKO assistant instructors. That's quite a fast progress ๐Ÿค“ ..i can also be a strict coach if i want to ๐Ÿค”

Our assistant instructors or Beach boys as we call them in our local kite culture, are unique to the Philippine Kite Scene. Believe it or not, i only learned how to rig my own lines and recover my own board long after i was already going upwind and turning. Just because there is always someone to help you. I would remember calling in for the wind and walking to the kite spot where my kite is already set up and ready to fly. Kiting in the philippines is really such a breeze for beginners because of these heroes and We love our beach boys. Not to mention these two are not JUST your regular beach boys they are AMANSANTIS - that cool kiter surf dudes with an Aman service touch. Now that's ๐Ÿค˜

Raise your hand if you have ever kited in the philippines and love our beach boys ๐Ÿ’จ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿ˜š๐Ÿ’œ #aman

5 months. 2 days and counting in this beautiful windy tropical paradise.
So proud of myself for being grounded for once ๐Ÿ˜‚
I am always restless and on the go hopping from one competition, kite event, finding a place to sail, kite and surf everywhere.
I just realized too that...
This is the most time i have ever spent in one place, one island and one kitespot in the last decade. Omg! -
Extremely grateful that i get to share my passion for kitesports with everyone who came through this amihan season to support and share some good vibes on and off the water. Your happiness and stoke when your out there kiting keeps me going. Maraming Salamat #Amanpulo

When the wind dies 10mins in your session and the struggle is real.. all you can do is chill and smile ๐Ÿ˜

Am such a frother..am one of those kiters that would push to go out even when the wind is borderline dying..but hey.. Failure is an opportunity to grow and learn.. and get some really funny memories of drifting offshore and getting picked up by a random fishing boat, discovering a random bay somewhere downwind (because i ended up there) and many more life vs. Nature adventures

In between those spectacular tricks in kiting, there are these moments that we struggle and rarely post about. These are actually the moments that make you better ๐Ÿ˜š

You can find me where the wind meets the sea.. PS: it was howling like crazy during this shoot, and I have never seen almost 40knots to be this beautiful and sunny. Philippines you are amazing ๐Ÿ˜ Lens: jackjohns

I often get asked:
Do you get island fever?
I don't understand why there is such a negative connotation to what island fever is... to me island fever is

A feeling of detachment from the outside world
So the answer is i guess yes, i have island fever
-- years ago i hung up my high heels and city life to have exactly that, to be detached from the outside world ๐Ÿ˜‡

What am learning is that being detached from the system of the outside world has a lot of repurcussions:
As much as i would love to just detach and stay in an island forever i have errands to do at the outside world to actually sustain my island life.
For instance: the technology of paperless money, online shopping and online banking has made me sustain my island life longer before i'd have to go back to the city.
Recently i have been having some issues with paypal as they cannot prove my existence since i cannot physically go to a bank like... tomorrow. So, accounts are suspended and i'd have to suck it up and stop the online shopping for now.. which is not necessarily a bad thing, until i would need something like a new tube of toothpaste ๐Ÿ˜‚

A special thanks to @susikite for bringing me two bottles of my conditioner from the maui ๐Ÿ˜™
And @vmvhypoallergenics for the skincare package ๐Ÿ˜™

It's not just a sunset, it's a #moonrise too.
There is something profoundly moving about experiencing a full moonrise. ๐ŸŒŒBe still and the earth will speak to you ๐ŸŒŒ

Taking this time to thank the wind and sulu sea for the countless blessings it literally blew my way ๐Ÿ˜‡
