Watch ‘The Great Journey’ — An Epic Kitesurf / SUP Adventure by Motorcycle

It was not only a kitesurf/SUP trip, it was a real adventure along the way.

What you see in the video is what we lived for three weeks. Probably the hardest trip we’ve done so far. The excess of weight was a real handicap during all the trip, specially during the desert part, not to say that non of us are professional motorbike pilots (Nuria learnt to ride a motorbike 10 days prior to departure). No external assistance, only the three of us.

The average time packing every morning was about 1.5 h (kiteboarding gear, an inflatable stand up paddle, several cameras, camping gear… ).

More than 400 GB of images captured, 5.000 km ridden and lots of memories and emotions that we tried to summarize in a bit less than four minutes.

Enjoy the ride, for us “the great journey”
