First big Norte since our arrival is hitting right now. Solid 4.5 -4.7 yesterday, though a little flat for our liking. Wind blew all night and we woke up to some nice swell up at the General's. Should probably be out there right now instead of writing this as it is fully cranking. Big decision for the day is if we are gonna load up the van and go sail the butter flat secret spot, or sail up to the Generals for some jumping. Either way its going to have to wait until after Joseph the fresh squeezed juice, doughnut and empenada guy pulls in the drive way and delivers breakfast.

Got some fun shots from yesterday with the clew-view an GoPro. We had 8 guests out yesterday ripping it up and I was trying to get super close to get them in the frame and I almost got taken out. (check the last photo)

Gonna get some more snaps today.

Looks like these conditions might happen again really soon... As in tomorrow! A nice little Norte pushed in some swell last week, enough to get in some surf and SUP action just down the beach. After sailing all day on my 4.5, we decided to get in a little surf session, followed by a smaller SUP session the following morning. Looking forward to it happening again SOON!

The last couple weeks have been insane, such great conditions. We just had 3 days off but before that it was 11 days straight of 5.0 or better with 5 days of solid waves. We were so beat by the end of that stretch we were down to 1 hour sessions. Ha. Had a rockus group of Texans down here who sailed every single day they were in town along with one of our regulars Don who hit it right on the money. Such good sailing. And it looks like the wind is back today with another huge Norte hitting tomorrow.

One of the days in that stretch the huge swell combined with the big moon flooded our gear shed all the way back to the board racks.

Hey Windsurfers,

Just throwing a heads up about the insanely windy season we are having down here in La Ventana. While California is suffering drought and there is no snow in the West, we have had one of the best seasons in recent memory.

I have yet to sail anything bigger than a 5.0 since Thankgiving. December saw 25 days of 5.0 or better wind. Now in January we are on day 18 of solid wind and its only January 22nd. We have 12 extreemly stoked windsurfers sailing with us down here right now who have scored every day they have been here. Not to mention the swell we have seen this month has produced the best surfing and SUPing waves I have ever seen down here! (Check the photos).

We still have lots of space open in February for anyone who want to come down and join in on the fun. Ticket prices in to Los Cabos have fallen to as low as $350 from SFO and we can set up our taxi guys to pick you up and drive your over. Also, Aeromexico is doing 2 flights a week from Los Angeles to La Paz, Thursdays and Saturdays.

Our last two groups found round trip tickets from the Tijuana airport to La Paz on Volaris Airlines for $250. They said walking across the border and grabbing a taxi to the TJ airport was a breeze and the airport was one of the nicest they have seen.

So if you are tired of the crappy snow season, or want to get warmed up for the spring windsurf season come down and score some great wind with us down in Baja.



Cheers,

I was in the group that flew from TJ on Volaris. Round trip tickets were actually only $150, but you could pay an extra $50 for excess baggage. Parking in SD and walking across the border was really easy. There is a guide here:

http://flyfromtijuana.com/parking-for-the-tj-airport/

On the way back, the time it took from landing the plane in TJ, getting our baggage, getting a cab to the border, walking across through US Customs, and getting the shuttle to the parking lot was only 45 minutes.

We rented gear from Wyatt, but my buddy had already rented a house. Next time it probably would be a lot easier just to stay with Wyatt. The rental car for a week with gas and insurance was about $700. Probably would have been cheaper and more fun to just stay w/ Wyatt and drive the 4 wheelers around.

Anyway, I had a great time, and Wyatt and Ty are great hosts. Looking forward to going back next year.

We sailed 7 out of 8 days. The first day was our arrival day, and we didn't hit the water until the end of the day, so rigged big and blasted around on 6.5/95l.

We had the next day off and then sailed the next six days... one day on 5.0, and then the rest on 4.4 and 4.7.
