Aaron Hadlow is back at Colona Watersports for the second time. His first kiteboarding visit to Magawish was actually 5 years ago when he was first learning to jump at the age of 11, but back then Colona Watersports was not even in the planning stages. In August 2003 Aaron was here for 2 weeks and was blessed with strong wind for the whole time.
This time around it has been windy again, Aaron has been riding the sand bar every day, practising his latest moves for the upcoming competition in Canada in the beginning of September.
We asked Aaron what made him choose Egypt and Colona Watersports again?
Aaron: This is my 3rd visit to Magawish and Colona Watersports, 2 years ago I was here at the same time and I had wind every day so I decided to come again this year, hoping for the same. I choose this spot over other places in Egypt because of convenience, Colona Watersports has a great set up. You can rock up in the morning, your kite’s are already here, use the compressor to pump them and head out to the perfect conditions off the sand bar. Most of the time I am riding at the sand bar because it is a great place to learn new moves with smooth wind and water and immediate rescue if it all goes wrong.
