La Ventana Classic and KiteXpo Canceled for 2013, Will Return in 2014

Updated 11/15/2012:

In lieu of the 2013 La Ventana Classic and Kitexpo, there will be a Kite Demo week in La Ventana Jan 16-20, 2013. So far we have received confirmations from Liquid Force, Ozone Kites, Axis Kiteboarding (Adrian Roper formerly from Underground), RRD, Mystic, Xenon, Werner Paddles and Airush.  We will also be supporting Lord of the Winds in 2013 with a Kitexpo demo event Jan 13-14, 2013 in Los Barriles where we expect the same companies along with North and Cabrinha. Stay tuned to www.thekiteboarder.com and www.facebook.com/thekiteboardermagazine for more info!

Eight years ago founder Tim Hatler and a few locals thought it would be cool to see if they could kiteboard the 11 miles from Isla Cerralvo to La Ventana. Now known as The La Ventana Classic and KiteXpo and Paddle Royale, the crossing has grown into one of the most anticipated events in North America attracting participants from all corners of the globe for a week of pro clinics, new gear demos, competitions, and nightly parties. Thanks to riders, the local community, and the windsurf, kite, and stand up paddleboard industries, this annual event has helped raise $97,808.50 of which 100% has been used for projects that directly benefit the local schools and community.

For 2013 there will be no La Ventana Classic as the event is taking a step back to prepare for an awesome 2014. In the meantime, plans are in the works to create a Kite Demo  week with participating brands at host properties in La Ventana Jan 16-20, 2013. So far we have received confirmations from Liquid Force, Ozone Kites, Axis Kiteboarding (Adrian Roper formerly from Underground), RRD, Mystic, Xenon, Werner Paddles and Airush.  We will also be supporting Lord of the Winds in 2013 with a Kitexpo demo event Jan 13-14, 2013 in Los Barriles.
