Langyaw #3 Riding the Wind in Boracay

The wind was strong, the waves rough and the skies are brooding. But at the horizon, a beautiful scene unfolded: a bevy of kiteboarders were passing, all participants to the Boracay International Funboard Cup. Their multicolored kites contrasting well with the monotone of the sky as they race to who gets to the finish line first.

At the beach, team mates and supporters were shouting for their favorite team as I was busy taking a shot with my camera. I only had a 70-200mm with me that time but this shot got me very excited.

Two months from now, Boracay will once again host this international event and its always a great excuse to head there on the first month of the year. Can’t wait? Relive the moments with the FREE photo e-magazine by clicking on the image at the right.

    Ayy. I didn’t see this while I was in Boracay. Maybe because of the weather. Even Parasailing konti lang din. Too bad. Do you have to be trained in order to do this??
