Made in Taiwan

Taiwan, a kitesurfer’s paradise??

To be perfectly honest with you, until recently I would have had strong doubts about this statement. That’s precisely why it’s so freakin’ awesome to take risks, give yourself a push and go out into the world to expand your horizon!

Ever since my earliest childhood the country Taiwan was well known to me (that’s what I thought anyway!). After all the entire kingdom of my toys, my bike and later on almost all my electrical gadgets, fake designer-clothes and the majority of house and kitchen utensils in my parents’ house carried the “Made in Taiwan”-badge. I knew little else other than that Taiwan was producing a hell of a lot of goods and that it was somewhere in Asia. I was astounded to discover in the process of thoroughly researching the globe for a new explorer-mission that this island in the Pacific seemed to be blessed with promising conditions for wind- and wave-addicts….

This article in the leading international magazine Kiteworld, reports about my unforgettable three-and-a-half week journey in this truly unique and so amazing country, where I made heaps of friends, soaked up the culture and was experiences a Taiwan that I didn’t have a clue existed!
