LOCATION

Boracay is one of the most establish kite locations in Asia with an already well established world reputation for top class wind and kiting conditions. As one of the Philippines top island holiday destinations, Boracay also offers lots of options on places to stay, eat, drink, party and try your hand at other watersports when you are not competing. The competition will be located once again in front of Aqua Boracay by Yoo on the Bulabog beach side of the island where all the kite action takes place during the winter monsoon months. The kiting here takes place inside a large reef protected bay that means for the most part flat or more or less flat water in all but the strongest of winds, which can be pretty strong during January, so expect those maxed out days on the water. Bulabog beach itself is not so wide, but more than enough for set-up and launching needs, plus it is shallow for a good way on the inside giving you plenty of safety margin to work with.
