Nordic Kite Girls – ON TOUR

nordickitegirls

For the European summer, Marit Nore, Anne Valvatne and I decided to do a little roadtrip through Denmark and Germany. The trip was supported by Kite Worldwide. What we did was basically just riding around in Denmark and Germany checking out all the good kitespots, hanging with the locals and documenting it. Unfortunately it just so happened that this week was the only week of the summer in Denmark/Germany WITHOUT any wind! Classic rookie mistake to believe it’s going to be windy, even though it was not a slight bit of breeze on the forecast a week in advance. At least you cannot say anything about our optimistic, Nordic spirit! No wind ended up giving us more ‘free-time’ to explore the culture of our neighbor countries, as well as getting up to heaps of other shenanigans.  To sum it up nicely, as our photographer, Uwe Schröder described the Nordics on tour; ‘this is not normal’!!

Enough said.
