Karakul | The Black Lake | Каракуль
It was an unbelievable privilege to be the first person to kitesurf in the stunning country of Tajikistan.
At 12992 ft, this is highest sailing regatta in the world. One of the most remote and land-locked regions on the planet and under ice for eight months of the year, the kitesurfing at Karakul had some wild conditions.
