La Ventana, Baja, Mexico: The sleepy town of La Ventana is filling up with kiteboarders and kiteboarding manufacturers and reps in preparation for the 2010 La Ventana Classic and KiteXpo. The TKB staff is here and will be posting updates and photos throughout the event.

The last few days have provided great kiting conditions and last night was the Burning Bush Party in the desert. Imagine a few hundred people in the Baja desert setting stuff on fire and you have an idea of what it was like.
