Why Visit Zanzibar

Zanzibar, what is it known for? Unless you've already explored this part of Africa, you won't even know there is a tropical paradise waiting to be discovered. A unique combination of exotic beaches, a colorful history, and a diverse culture make this island a compelling destination and will make you dream to Kite surf Zanzibar. You will be amazed by the beauty of this place.

Kitesurfing Location

Almost all of the tourists who visit Paje go here for kitesurfing. This makes the town itself look less commercialized and more traditional. If you’re a kitesurfing geek and looking for a special place to enjoy kitesurfing, then a kite surfing in Paje Zanzibar beach should be on your bucket list. Often referred to as the “Pearl of Zanzibar”, this beautiful paradise is one of the world's most coveted kitesurfing spots.

Visiting Zanzibar was a magical experience; the people are down to earth and incredibly honest. Plus, the white sand is unlike anything we've seen before — There are many white-sand beaches and crystal-clear waters in this area, making it home to one of the most beautiful beaches on the planet.

Weather and Wind Conditions

All throughout the day, the tide in Paje drastically rises and falls. Low tides leave the inner lagoon empty and kiters have no choice but to head out to the sandbanks or on the outer lagoon. During low and high tides, both of these lagoons offer perfect knee-deep flatwater conditions. High tide offers mild chop and some kickers for some freestyle.

Kite surf in Zanzibar enjoy two seasons in Paje. Beginning mid-December, the first one runs until the end of February. During this time of year, the wind comes from the North and it blows at approximately 12 to 25 knots. Locals call this season the Kaskazi. From time to time, Paje gets hit by anticyclones from the Indian Ocean, which can bring in some pretty decent swell.

The second season is commonly known as the Kuzi and it takes place from May until October. If you happen to visit the area during this season, you'll notice that the winds are a little bit calm in the morning while they become more wild around noon. This is the time when surf spots start popping up everywhere!

Unlike some tropical beaches, Zanzibar's reef isn't as extreme as those on other tropical islands. You could usually see turtles or dolphins joining kiters on the shoreline during kitesurfing sessions.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
