My husband and I tagged along with Marilou and her kitesurfing group for a day trip not planning to kitesurf but to enjoy the sea, beautiful beaches and awesome snorkeling around Pigeon Cay. Little did I know that she had much more planned for me and brought along the “training kite” so I could try the sport of kite surfing. I was very nervous as I knew nothing about kitesurfing and had never attempted it before but Marilou with her expertise and easygoing spirit put me at ease and gave me the confidence to strap myself (with her assistance) to a kite powered by the wind. For my first lesson we stayed on the shore where I could learn the basics about the wind window, how the kite responds to the wind and safety maneuvers. For a first lesson I considered this a success but Marilou encouraged more just like she knows how to challenge your mind and body during one of her yoga sessions!!! She let me feel what it is like to be behind the kite powered by the wind by letting me body drag behind her through the water. Very basic but for a first timer the chance to experience the power of the wind was a very memorable experience. Just a taste of what kite surfing is like and I will for sure try kitesurfing again and would consider returning to Roatan for a repeat lesson with Marilou!!!! Glad I had the opportunity to experience Kitesurf Roatan and Marilou was so gracious with sharing her knowledge!!!!!
