Mombasa to Diani - Leg 5

Mombasa to Diani - Leg 5

Day 5 Mombasa - Diani. Distance covered 33km. Distance kited 54km. Hours on water 3.5

As always the day would begin early, at around 6:45am. Nic, ever the pro, would be up an hour before everyone else editing his photos from the day before. We hope you’ve been enjoying Nic’s daily photographs capturing the Kenyan coast, it’s people, and our expedition (picking up a bruised cheek from his camera after hours of photography on board the bouncing skiff). It’s a very special feeling for us to have our trip documented in such a wonderful way, and we owe Nic a huge debt of gratitude for giving up his time to join us.

'Mr. Tricktionary Michael Rossmeir (Rossi) and Canadian pro freestyler Phil Soltysiak had one goal this winter: get right off the beaten path and sail waters where few windsurfers had been before. This wasn’t easy to find during the winter months, but, after many long nights of discussions in Tarifa (these boys have it tough), they came up with their destination: Kenya on the East coast of Africa, south of Somalia and north of Tanzania.' - Boards Windsurfing Magazine, 2012
