Moments of Zanzibar by ABoards rider A.Salnik

Zanzibar is blessed with warm weather and average temperatures ranging  25°-28°C all year round. Thanks to windy conditions and pleasant sea breezes it never gets too hot. Zanzibar’s shallow crystal clear waters, sandy beaches and constant winds have near perfect conditions for kitesurfing with best months from mid of June until end of September and from December until February.

A little while ago when Europe was still in deep winter ABoards Kiteboarding Ukraine team rider Andrey Salnik enjoyed paradise like weather, beaches and winds of Zanzibar.

Started riding: all starts in surfing………

Surfing: Bocas del toro was a great place for me to really start surfing!.. finding the right place where I could easy go out to surf, with different point brecks, perfect waves, good waves. 2009 was my year to really get good at it!! realizing how incredible that sport can be, I belive is even more extreme and you don’t need more gear to carry on. All my life I try so many different times, at one point I stop trying the surf, part for it was of not been in the right spot, to be able to really learn surfing, and guess I didn’t have so much the self-discipline of padle, padle, padle, it wasn’t so much fun, until I saw the kiteboarding, I totally got hooked in; I could go every where, more action, it became easier and more fun, hahaha…

Kiteboarding: I got inspired to the sport when the crew of Realkiteboarding came to visit the island of cozumel. after that..I start & stop several times as well, part of the main reason was of not having the right gear, the wind condition were short seasons, or some other inconveniences that I couldn’t easy just get into the water and go riding.. I was just watching instructors videos of kite… until 2007 I finally got my gear set, and 2008 I move to Dominican Republic to get better at it, no longer of 3 days I start improving … DR knowing for best spot for kiting, visiting before for short holidays. In there I dedicated so much more to the sport… participating in a trip for 3 days and been part of the film secret spots in DR with the crew Starkites. In middle of 2009 I start traveling around searching for new spots with wind in panama. where later on I could mix the two sports depending on the weather conditions.

Industry experience: I am a freelance Artist, for several years I had my airbrushing company, work as a freelance photography model, modeled jewelry, promoter for few years, and now dedicating more to the interior decorations. Inviting you all , to visit my website:

Competitions: none
I try to train in DR for the race competition, for the PKRA, but there were no race competition at the time. The whole story chance when I arrive the 1st night at extreme hotel, I got robe after that getting into very disturbing experience with a robbery & legal process, I lost all the concentration for training, I focus more on paints for work, and staying in there until everything got resolve, the history and up me leaving the country and the girl getting out of jail. not a cool history, sorry about that, but regards of adding this information, I meet as well wonderful people that help me in the way! and now good friends. During the legal process, I won the contest with the Aboards. I realized this sport now is part of my life style. I have the skills and abilities as surfing, and with better luck and more time in the water things could work out much better. However is has give me a good experience of life, stronger mind. more careful in my travels. I lost the motivation to train for a competition, I try for life! Jeje:) I enjoy extreme sports!!!..pure adrenaline!!
