Another Great Kiteboarding Session at Kakula Island — Featuring GoProHD & KiteHero Mount

Check out Team Genetrix on another great day of kiteboarding at Kakula Island, Vanuatu.  Unfortunately, you can’t quite see the friendly dugong (aka manatee) who showed up to say hello to Marco.  For information on our kites, check out

How to gain some instant poundage.

No wind today.  Perfect timing to indulge in the local cuisine, Laplap with coconut milk.   Ground manioc (tapioca) is wrapped in island spinach which has been soaked in coconut milk.  The whole dish is wrapped in ginger leaves and burlap then baked underground by hot volcanic rocks.
Two days of preparation but well worth it.

Driving around Vila

Drove around downtown and part of the island of Port Vila today.

The Magic Tree

A personal tour of the tree house with Julien to paradise.

Kakula Island Session (now in HD!)

Watch Marco, Julien and Victor rip some huge airs in this video we shot over the weekend at Kakula Island resort, a private island kiteboarding paradise in Vanuatu. We took over all of the island’s 5 rooms and even had a few folks sleeping in tents and couches, but no one complained because the conditions were great and everyone was cool.

Celebrating 30 Years of Vanuatu’s Independence

The 31st July is the Independence celebration here in Vanuatu. On the outer islands, the kids never get to see fireworks so we decided to blow up some of our own fireworks for all to enjoy.  It was crazy — but no one  lost any fingers.

Eat My Wake!

A late wake board session. This place is magical. I can’t imagine how flat this place must be when there is no wind. 25knots again today but the lagoon is somewhat sheltered.
