What a month it has been here in Tonga….we arrived on 7th April and it was just go go go….We ended up spending about two and a half weeks on Tongatapu trying to get through government processes and paperwork….It was very stressful and hard…however we succeeded! We not only retrieved our containers from the customs […]

Here we are peeps…onto the final countdown.  A mere 15 days to go and Kitesurf Tonga will be leaving on a jet plane to immerse ourselves into our new adventure. After an intense 8 months of planning, visiting, selecting, making mistakes and bleeding the bank account dry it is time for us to stop thinking, […]

Glen has just sent me some pictures of the results of Cyclone Ian that he took yesterday on Uoleva Island, Ha’apai, Tonga.
