Jordan Ema-Otu lives in Leucate, France, where he works as a windsurfing instructor at Julien Taboulet’s Wesh Center. In February 2016 he travelled together with his friend Gaspard to Colombia for the second time in his life and they realeased the video “Colombia Trippin’ again”. The video is a short and simple sum up of the trip. It has good vibes, shows perfect spots for freestyle windsurfing and a quick glimpse of the South American country. It’s a country, where rhythm, the sea and a relaxed mentality are important parts of the daily lifestyle. Jordan and Gaspard inhaled this special lifestyle from the first second on and had fun on water and on land. They windsurfed at remote spots, made plans for 2017 and had enough time for some sightseeing, too.
Jordan Ema-Otu: “It’s still amazing, sailing every day, meeting amazing new people and just falling in love everyday a little bit more with this country. Thanks again to all those who made these few days a real success! The action was filmed all along February in Cabo de la Vela, Riohacha and Puerto Velero (near barranquilla). We plan to run a center at Cabo de la Vela. We had super strong wind here at the end of our trip and I was a bit sad that I have to leave, but anyway I will be back in October!”

Jordan Ema-Otu and friends windsurfing in Colombia
In 2010 Michael Rossmeier and Philip Soltysiak explored Colombia’s windsurfing beaches and produced a nice film. Link to the film: Windsurfing into the unknown – Colombia
I could have shown some wave sailing as well for sure but our camera passed out tragically when we made it to the wave spots. The best part for this is between Cartagena and Barranquilla.
If you want we can talk about it through MPs on Facebook.
Just write me before! 😉
You gonna wavesail next time? Supposedly its good in Santa Veronica and there’s some french guys that own a windsurf / kitesurf house there.
What about the wavesailing in Cartagena?
No it’s a French friend that came for a month
Is the other dude in the video the only local freestyle windsurfer in Colombia?
