Hamza waterstart in Mallorca

 

Finally, we are able to upload this entry on our kitesurfing blog thanks that we have been able to rescue the photos which our kite teacher took while our kite student Hamza was starting his waterstarts and first rides.
Unfortunately, the file with contained the pictures had been erased by mistake but we managed to recover these images today, we bring here. We apologize to our friend Hamza for the delay and we hope that he will continue to move forward on its kitesurfing progression.
