The Best Odyssey: can you imagine yourself in there? | Photo: Jody MacDonald

Imagine you're going to travel five years searching for the perfect kitesurfing session in a paradise island, in the middle of nowhere.

It's not a dream, it’s reality. Well, at least for the carefully chosen water men and women that have already surfed 132 kite spots of 39 countries.

The Best Odyssey is more than a kiteboarding expedition. It is an unbelievable life experience. The crew of kiteboarders has already travelled 40.000 miles in a Lagoon 570 catamaran, through the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Ocean.

At the same, the Best Odyssey is offering to serious explorers the opportunity to participate in a world sailing expedition that has never been done. Of course, this trip is not for kiteboarding beginners.

The mission kicked off in 2007 and will end in 2012. Jody MacDonald is the resident photographer on board the Best Odyssey and has captured incredible pictures, as the one above.

Recently, the crew has chosen the "Top Ten Places to Kiteboard on Earth". They are:

1. Marshall Islands
2. Cargados Shoals
3. Micronesia (Pohnpei and Kosrae)
4. Anakao, Madagascar
5. Raivavae, Austral Islands, French Polynesia
6. Atolls, French Polynesia
7. Los Roques, Venezuela
8. San Blas, Panama
9. Barbuda, Caribbean
10. Bazaruto, Mozambique

Thirty Formula GPS kiteboarders battled it out on the mountains of the Alto Sangro, Italy, for the second leg of 2018 IKA Snowkite World Cup.
