From mid-October to April/May, La Ventana offers great conditions for a Baja California windsurfing vacation: warm water, good wind, and a variety of sailing sites well-suited to anyone from beginning waterstarters to freestyle experts.
The north wind here is more consistent than other Baja locations due to the Venturi effect created by Cerralvo Island to our east, and the thermal suction from the rising hot air from the desert peninsula to our south. The wind usually starts in late morning, light at first; typically building to 15-25 mph in the afternoon. It usually blows all day with calm mornings and evenings for other activities or relaxing. Then there are the epic days of the big Nortes; these days are peppered throughout the season and provide great high-wind sailing and swell for those who are up to it. There are even a few spots for the wave sailors on those big days.
