Enjoyed a fascinating, fun-filled MaiTai gathering on Necker. We brought together a whole host of kitesurfing enthusiasts and forward-thinking entrepreneurs.
The events are perfect for meeting interesting new people, letting your hair down and building some great connections. Plus there's lots of kitesurfing, which is always fine by me!
MaiTai was created by kitesurfer extraordinaire Susi Mai and venture capitalist Bill Tai. The first ever MaiTai Necker was co-led by Constantin Bisanz, serial entrepreneur - thanks to all.
What's more, MaiTai is set up as a non-profit to harness the community’s power to promote environmental advocacy and protect the playgrounds nature provides for us.
The next big MaiTai event will be on May 24th for a week and Susi Mai is encouraging kiters and non-kiters alike to attend, email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. Hopefully if you’re a non-kiter, you’ll be a kiter by the end of the week.
MaiTai works for kiters and learners alike and I look forward to being there. Below are the other entrepreneurs and kitesurfers who came along, and you can see more of the photos over on Facebook.
