Kite boarding is one of the extreme water sports that I want to try. You ride a board and then you use the power of the wind to propel yourself to surf with a help of a giant kite. I know that you need proper license to operate a kite board in some beaches, but if you are one of the licensed riders, then check out the 2nd annual Blue Palawan International Kite Board Open 2017.
