Light wind gear continues to evolve and the new model year gear for 2015 is better than ever.  Join the TKB crew from March 28 – April 5, 2015 as we demo the new Light Wind 2015 gear in Baja! Which kites turn like a 12m? What brand offers the most fun in light wind? Which kite and board gets you riding the soonest? What kite has the best low end grunt and wind range?

Want to review gear and help other riders around the world when it comes time for them to choose new gear? Looking for new light wind gear at demo pricing? We’ve got you covered.


Just another beautiful Baja sunset from your private casita at Palapas Ventana.

Palapas Ventana will be our host with a semi-private  beach, compressors, dedicated launcher/lander, and a convenient on site restaurant above launch.  This eco-resort boasts ocean views from every casita, gear storage, wifi, and amazing food created by Chef Ruben at PV’s restaurant/bar/espresso cafe.  You can choose from a specialty casita (complete with your own bathroom) or a regular casita (bathrooms/showers 25-30 feet from your door). Rates include 19% hotel tax  but not standard 10% gratuity.

Specialty casita:
Single  occ  $1647
Double occ  $1197
Triple occ $1047


Regular casita
Single occ $1412
Double occ $1,002
