WIND OR NO WIND - After a few days marking time wakeboarding at CamSur Watersports Complex’s cable lake reputed to be the best cable park in the world, some twenty of the best kiteboard riders in the world were all smiles and jubilant as a brisk wind rose Friday, December 10 and enabled them to dig up, unfurl and left fly their kites for a whole morning of kitesurfing at the Lago del Rey.
