What an incredible week I had with Ride and Dream. Raphaelle and Julien do an amazing job curating people from all different parts of the world, ages and skill levels and bring them together as a team. The days start early with lots of Kiteboarding and finish with lots of laughs and drinks. It is probably one of my most memorable weeks I have ever had, and am looking forward to joining Ride and Dream on their next Kite-Camp.
