La Ventana 2012: Scenes from Burning Bush

Last night was Burning Bush, an annual party held here in La Ventana. As usual, it was quite a sight to be seen. In keeping with apocalyptic predictions from the Mayan calendar, this year's theme was The End of Bush.

No Mas Basura in La Ventana

Today was the annual No Mas Basura (No More Trash) event in La Ventana. Held the Friday before the upcoming La Ventana Classic and KiteXpo, No Mas Basura is a community effort to clean up the towns of La Ventana and El Sargento.

History of the La Ventana Classic

What began as a local competition to help out the local schools in the small Baja community of La Ventana and El Sargento has grown into one of the largest kiteboarding events attracting kiteboarders from all over North America and beyond.

La Ventana Update for 1/17/2011: Another Windy Day!

While today wasn't quite as windy as the last few, today was another good day for kiteboarding in La Ventana. This small town in the Baja desert is quickly filling to capacity with kiteboarders and kiteboarding industry people. La Ventana has to be one of the few places in the word where kiteboarders can be walking down a remote dirt road and run in to other kiters they know.

La Ventana Update for 1/15/2011: Burning Bush, More Wind, Clinic Schedule Announced

Today we had another perfect day of kiting here in La Ventana, with the TKB test team being able to get out for another full day on the water. After a morning planning meeting with Tim Hatler of Palapas Ventana, we were able to test 9m kites from North and Caution and a Litewave board. The wind was still blowing late into the day, so we shot a few photos with Wainman HI team rider Spencer Lujan until the wind lightened up.

South of the Border in San Quintin

Head 20 minutes south from San Diego on I-5 and you will find yourself in a wildly different place. As soon as you cross under the large green, white, and red sign that reads “MEXICO,” make sure you line up in one of the “Nothing to Declare” lanes and hope for a green light.
