Come for a wild ride with Pro-Kitesurfer Gabi Steindl, one of Duotone Kiteboarding’s longest standing team-riders, on her “Wave of Life” — a life dictated by the swell, the wind and her kite-explorer missions to the most far-flung corners of the Earth.

After several years in the Kite World Cup (2003-2007), Gabi stopped competitive riding and embarked on her journey as a Globetrotting Freerider, Adventurer & Travel Writer.
Dedicating her life to the quest to discover new, untouched kitesurfing destinations and virgin waves, Gabi roams the planet typically on solo missions.
With over 80 countries under her belt — and counting! — she shares her adventures in articles (over 300 publications so far) for leading magazines internationally.
Gabi simply lives and breathes for her time on the water and her explorer-trips into the unknown. Originally from Vienna, Austria, Gabi is a permanent resident of Australia today living - when she’s not travelling - in Margaret River, Western Australia. Let Gabi show you her “Wave of Life” !

In the world of kitesurfing the male gender is dominating the beaches and girls are seen as secondary. Jalou Langeree wanted to prove this wrong and decided to do girls only trip. Joined by Olivia Jenkins and Catharina Edin, they went on a trip to find one of the most mesmerising left handers to kite in the world - Flame Balls in the South Coast of Madagascar. To reach that place, they embarked on a 118ft ship called ‘Luna Moon’ which allowed them to live and keep the proximity to this unique wave spot. To be able to kite in waves the right combination of swell and wind direction must appear, thus sometimes that means you have to wait. But if you wait long enough there is a high chance of scoring the conditions of the lifetime.
