Welcome to Destination Kiteboarding's Kiteguide - your guide to finding the best kitesurfing holiday destinations and travel in kiteboarding.

So its been a fun time since I last sent this out. In between the amazing summer we've been having here in Vancouver and Squamish,BC, we've been heading over to Nitinat on Vancouver Island to get some of the sweet thermal winds that funnel up from the pacific on those warm summer days. Racing at 5am to make sure we got a ferry on a long weekend was the easy part - getting my girlfriend out of bed was the challenge!

In this issue:
1. The Nitinat Return - first trip back for 2009
2. Kiteboarding Film shoot - Tourism Squamish's promotional kiteboarding vid - my pics
3. KSM travel packages - a great way to kiteboard and enjoy Maui - Kiteboarding School of Maui

1. Kiteboarding Destination: Trip to Nit, Vancouver Island
As my first trip back to Nitinat this summer, I was blown away (pun not intended) by the funkiness of this gem of a spot. Take a look at Nitinat's profile to get what I mean. The camping gets pretty crowded but with such a great vibe, cool friends and many new faces, we had a great time and wind-wind-wind!
Don't forget WindFest coming up this Friday from 14 -16 August. Click here to check out more on Nitinat.

2. Kiteboarding Film shoot
The Tourism Squamish film shoot - 2 days of "ACTION!" Yeah as I mention I got the role as one of the 'faces of Squamish Kiteboarding' and me and my faithful dog Cheekeye played the part - he did better than I - at least he understands when he's told to "sit"! Check out some cool fisheye lens photos and a bit more about the day.
