Also known as kite-boarding, this extreme sport lets you ride a small surfboard across the water as you’re propelled to dizzying heights while hanging on to the handle of a huge kite. Boracay is hailed as the Kiteboarding Capital in Asia and is the top windsurfing spot in the Philippines. The large, 2-mile lagoon in Bulabog Beach, with smooth, flat waters 1.5meters deep, has mild, steady blowing winds perfect for this sport. International competitions are held here around January to February, but courses are available all year for beginners and advanced levels. Instructions are offered in English, German, and other languages.
