Gabriele Steindl: Professional Kitesurfer & Freelance Writer - Action, Lifestyle & Travels

KiteGabi Homepage


“Welkam to the Hapi Isles” is the title to my pioneering kitesurf adventure in the Solomon Islands.

Adrift in time, with wonderfully wholehearted people and unimaginably beautiful, the Solomons might be the last untouched paradise on Earth. With only 6000 tourists per year, this is truly “off the beaten track”. What I found island hopping across the broad archipelago with Stephan Kleinlein, a top professional action sports & nature photographer simply blew me away. I reckon the super 16 pages spread proofs that 😉

My article offers an exciting adventure showcasing this unique island world in which one almost feels like on another planet. This trip stands for “true pioneering” in every sense of the word – no kitesurfer has ever ventured into these waters before…

Covering much more then “just kitesurfing” (first ever white homestay visitor with a tribe on a remote island, world-class diving at several wrecks from WWII, surfing etc.) and supported by spectacular original images, dive into this beautiful feature below by downloading the pdf or clicking on the thumbnails to read online.

If German is not your mother tongue, find the article in several English magazines, for example in Action Asia or The Kiteboarder, Spanish in Surf a Vela and Italian in 4Kitesurf.

Have fun & write to me, I always love to hear from you!!
