Francisco Lufinha, a world record holder of the longest journey on a Kitesurf without stops (48hours and 874km), has a secret. It’s a place where “natural landscape with vibrant greens and blues takes your breath away,” where people are “warm and welcoming” and where you can experience “all the four seasons in the same day.” This place is called the Azores, a Portuguese archipelago in the North Atlantic Ocean.

This video, produced by The Flying Man for HumanEyes, offers a glimpse of what you can get from these islands. You’ll have to get there and discover the rest for yourself.
