Playa del Sol offers an enchanted tropical setting that is a world apart from the hustle and bustle of over-commercialized resort areas. Guests will find Playa del Sol's intimate setting to be a nice change from the ‘mega resorts’ found in other areas of Baja. With only 26 rooms, Playa del Sol is able to offer a slightly more personal touch for all its guests.

Program

If you are interested in learning to kiteboard, then this zero-to-hero package is perfect for you. This is a course for complete beginners wishing to gain the skill to kiteboard.

To ensure your maximum progress (and safety), Vela Baja generally adopts an effective “one-on-one” approach to kite lessons. Furthermore, although each course has an outline structure, you’ll find that the instructors tailor each and every lesson to fit your exact needs. Please also note that kiteboarding lessons will typically include some theory, as well as on-water time.

You will have eight hours of lessons throughout your stay. All the equipment you will need is provided.

Kiteboarding Conditions

Conditions at Vela Baja are perfect for all types of kiting. For launching and landing there is a wide, sandy and uncrowded beach that stretches for several miles in both directions. The wind usually fills in around mid-morning and blows until late afternoon. Winds vary from a steady breeze to very strong with a typical windy day ranging 18 to 23 knots.

The side-shore winds from the left ensure there is ample space for all kiters. When a strong “El Norte” blows, sizeable swell can build giving great conditions for kitesurf style riders.

Kiteboarding Safety

Your safety is Velabaja Windsurf primary concern and they provide a constant safety watch and rescue service for their kiting customers. Furthermore the location is fundamentally safe for the following reasons:

  • There are no strong tides or currents.
  • There are no submerged hazards.
  • The shape of the bay and wind direction enable easy self rescue.
  • The majority of the beach is wide, sandy and free of obstacles.
  • The beach is far from roads and traffic.

Kite rental

You can rent from the wide range Cabrinha kiteboarding equipment. No matter the wind conditions, your level, or preferred riding style; there is equipment to suit your needs.

You’ll find an extensive range of twin-tip and kite surf boards as well as the latest hydrofoils. The majority of kites are current year models with sizes from 5 meters to 14 meters.

Rentals start from as little as half a day with prices discounted for longer periods. Your safety is the primary concern so Vela Baja asks all renters to take a brief pre-rental assessment course. Alternatively, you may present your valid IKO level 3 card as evidence of kiting competency.

Location

The primary operation is at the beach front “Playa Del Sol” Hotel in the town of Los Barriles on the East Cape of Baja California Sur just a brief 45-minute journey from Los Cabos International Airport (SJD) along the Mex 1 highway.

Los Barriles spot

Los Barriles has long been famous for the regular strong “El Norte” winds that sweep down the Sea of Cortez in the winter months creating ideal conditions for windsurfing and kiteboarding.

Winds are typically side-shore from the left (Port Tack) frequently blowing from around 11 a.m. until late afternoon. The spot is very safe due to the shape of the bay. On calmer days, the clear waters of the Sea of Cortez are perfect for stand up paddling and free-diving. The surrounding countryside hosts a highly developed network of scenic and challenging single-track mountain bike trails.
