kta- Kiteboard Tour Asia an der Bulabog Beach auf Boracay Island.Formula Kitesurfen nur so zum Spaß am Funboard Center Boracay.







This season Funboard Center Boracay has been very close to the Kitboard Tour Asia, the KTA Philippines Boracay Extrem...  at Bulabog Beach, Kite Instructor Glynn and Station-manager Simone, multiply winner of the International Funboard Cup in Boracay, went shoulder on shoulder with up to 80 international kiteboarders from all over the world to the 5th round of this event... more than 40 kitesurfers gathered at the starting line at the south end of Bulabog Beach and were waiting for the first flag going down for the twin-tip race. Up to the first buoye we are just talking about going up-wind. It's not about the best kite-equipment nor the best speed. Who can keep the smallest angel to the wind, but the biggest pain in the quadriceps is the winner... The lap to the second buoye looks quite relaxing, as long as you do not get tangled with any of the pro-rider already heading back. Done! Just go "Downwind" all the way to the finishing line. Sounds quite enjoyable, but it's not! This time your other leg is burning like hell! And that was just the beginning... Glynn could bravly mamaged to get 19th in the allover ranking. Well done! With the biggest respect to all participants, Simone has given up and went back to windsurfing and fun-kiteboarding. Cobbler, stick to your last!

As mentioned the last time, today we want to draw your attention on some accommodation on Boracay. Of course we picked first of all resorts, apartments and hotels on Bulabog Beach and hope we can provide you with a good selection for all kind of budgets: The main advantage at Bulabog Beah compare to the White Beachh is the easy access to the Kite-and Windsurf scenery, as well as a quite evening ambience and a permanent light breeze replacing any aircon. Last but not least the amazing sunset for all early birds!


Spacious apartments in Cohiba Villas at Bulabog Beach on Boracay Island.Perfect view from Cohiba Villas over Bulabog Beach.Cohiba Villas This resort probably has the best view on the whole island and surely the biggest apartments in which to stay in. The huge 40 and 40m2 balconies mean you never miss the kite-and windsurf activities at Bulabog Beach. And if you are too lazy to walk to White Beach, you can easily take the free shuttle scheduled every hour to the mall. Alternatively stay home and prepare your own meal in the well equipped kitchens available in every apartment.

Ralph's Place am Bulabog Beach auf Boracay Island.Ralph’s Place belongs to the first resorts at Bulabog Beach just behind Funboard Center Boracay elevated on a small mount. They offer many different types of bungalows, studios and apartments surrounded by a beautiful garden. All type of accommodation were built with native materials combined with a western style. We think this is one of the last typical resorts with the charme of a philippine design from the early years.
