Changi Beach

Changi Beach is a great place for cycling, a nice walk, or just about any other sea sport.

When I was there on my bike recently on a nice windy afternoon, I saw several people out on the sea kiting. It was a great day for the chute-powered wakeboards, with the high winds out on the sea. I spoke to one of the guys who was kiting that afternoon, and he said it is a difficult sport, but one that offers quite a thrill. That was certainly the feeling I got from watching it.

I have not gotten to give it a try yet, but I think it is something that I would enjoy a great deal, and if I can find the time (and energy!) to give it a shot one day, I might just do so.

If you are interested in joining the kiters at Changi Beach, you'll have to do a little training first. The fellow I spoke to on the beach gave me a number for the guy who does the training. You can contact Nasir at 96620354 if you would like to find out more about lessons. Try to get to it soon. This is really the season for kiting, with the high winds that you'll find on the sea right now. After the monsoon season ends, you might still can kite, but it won't be as fun, even on the days when it is possible.
