Kakula island during the 7.8 quake today

Marco, Thierry, Tom and Pablo were all on the water when a 7.8 earthquake hit Vanuatu today.  As the ground was still shaking and Marco was kiting by, he though we were joking.  They couldn’t feel anything being on the water.  The island was laterally bending and warping under our eyes with burst of sand being lifted off of the beach and blowing away with the wind.  It was surreal. The Island of Kakula is about 20k closer to the epicenter.

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.
