Travel with Elana | Kite Surfing

|By Elana| Home, Travel with Elana

Just when I thought traveling in Cape Town can not get any more exciting, I bumped into Malin Kirjonen.  A boxing champion , stuntwoman and a F-ONE kite surfer.

I’m not gonna kid you, Even though I have the guts to try extreme things, I’m not very good at doing extreme things.  Malin is incredible on her board, and took us on a journey where none of our cameras have ever gone before.WhatsApp Image 2017-02-21 at 12.22.45 PM

My travel buddy Jan, captured all the action.  For Jan, photographing action sports is all about capturing that one perfect moment, often a split second.

A few factors need to be perfect when taking these snaps; your focus, exposure and shutter speed to freeze action!

Jan says: “Getting everything right is extremely hard, but its also very satisfying when everything comes together.”

Reaching heights of up to 7 meters in the water, Malin makes surfing look so easy!  Her love for Cape Town ?  Well, the  lifestyle, the mountains, the best beaches and of course the greatest conditions for kite surfing!
