Kitesurfing School Historic Gallery

In this historic Kitesurfing School photo gallery, we'll try to show some last century photos (back in 1998, 1999) so you can put some faces to the names of the pioneer kitesurfers mentioned in this web site.  We'll also include some modern famous kitesurfers and manufacturers.

This is what Carabete bay looked like "last century", back in 1998 (no kite on the sky except for those of Hung, Jan and Terry).
Hung Vu, Antonio Esteban and Jan Pina are checking out Jan's new 220 cm kiteboard, the first kiteboard ever made in Dominican Republic. Dan, the future kitesurfer is practicing with Hung's FOne 230 (Carabete Dec. 1998)
Hung is holding the kite while Terry is trying to untangle the lines. Dan, the future kitesurfer is between Terry and Hung. Terry's board is an FOne 230 in the foreground (Carabete Jan 1999).
Hung, Andre and Cory Roeseler.  Magic Surf (the name on Hung's T-shirt) is the windsurfing shop in Paris where Hung bought his first Wipika kites  (Baja, Mexico April 1999)
