Vela Baja - OPENING DAY NOVEMBER 15, 2014
Located just a 1 hour drive north of Cabo San Lucas, Vela Baja has always been a favorite winter get-away. From mid-November through early March Baja's famous "El Norte" winds sweep the Sea of Cortez attracting kitesurfers from around the world with ideal conditions for all levels of ability.Our base of operations is the Playa del Sol, in the heart of Los Barriles, With a beachfront location, beautiful gardens, upgraded rooms, heated pool, an incredible selection of kites and boards from Cabrinha, plus assisted downwinder trips for advanced riders, our staff can't wait to show you Baja!
All lessons are taught on-site in front of the Playa del Sol. You'll start on the wide beach with a trainer kite to give you a clear understanding of the power of the kite. After that, the body-drag lesson will introduce you to a larger kite with a focus on safety, depowering, launching and landing, relaunching, and safety release. Those skills are necessary for you to get a board on your feet, and ride! You'll find plenty of latest kites and boards ready to launch plus other toys including seas kayaks, snorkel gear, and a well-tuned fleet of full-suspension Specialized mountain bikes with miles of guided or self-guided trails to explore, plus a wonderful and friendly staff, and the relaxed Baja atmosphere that our guests return for every year.
