Kiteboarding magazines consistently rate La Ventana as one of the best places to learn and train. From mid-October to mid-April there’s warm water and consistent wind suited for beginners to experts. Around late morning the winds begin, light at first, and typically building to 15-25 mph in the afternoon. It usually blows from about 11:00 to 4:00 or 5:00 with calm mornings and evenings for other activities or relaxing.
You can launch on the wide beach right in front of the resort. The winds are side shore, and there’s an air hose on the beach to get your kite ready quickly. Onsite gear storage is in our beachfront bodega.
For an extra fee, we’ll shuttle you upwind for a downwinder:
To Campground: $5 (2 rider minimum)
To Hot Springs: $10 (2 rider minimum)
Alas Del Mar offers kiteboarding lessons with new ‘DUOTONE True Kiteboarding’ and ‘ION Water’ gear. Wing foiling is a new exciting sport and we have the Fanatic and Duotone gear for learning and progression, come fly with Alas del Mar!

“Your progression, enjoyment and safety are my priorities. I’m committed to helping you learn to be a competent kiter, able to assess conditions and choose the right gear to help you to progress quickly and have a great time on the water. Once you’re ripping, I have the photography skills and equipment to get some shots of you in action. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you enjoy your time on the water. ”
Would definitely come back and recommend it to others. The staff was very helpful, the beach is amazing; the cabin was just right and the gear all rigged and ready to go was sweet (you don’t need any more gear!) What can I say, it’s a Windsurfer’s paradise. I was fortunate to have near perfect sailing conditions with high winds for 4 of my five days. The SUP boards and kayaks were a big hit with my non-sailing family members and really nice to have access to on those glassy mornings. The hot tub and fridge full of beer was the icing on the cake. Thanks and hope to be down again next winter.
We were so incredibly happy with your place. Nothing could’ve been better. The location was perfect for the event, the place is beautiful and we cannot say enough about the food. Thank you so much for having us. We now know where we’ll be staying when we come to La Ventana again. Everyone was very friendly and we look forward to meeting you next time we’re there.
If you want to go where life’s warm and slow, go to Baja. If you want fantastic wind for kiting, go to La Ventana. If you want the place to relax well, eat amazing food, lounge in the shade and watch the kite/air show or sit in the hot tub after you get out of the water, go to Ventana Windports. You can feel the care and hard work that Esteban and crew have put into creating this place over the years. You’ll not find another like it anywhere.
My wife and I spent a week at Ventana Windsports between Christmas and New Year’s. It’s a beautiful place with all the comforts of home, but none of the annoyances, and plenty of wind. Steve keeps about several quivers of sails rigged and in a bodega on the beach, right next to a big rack of about 35 boards in any range you could ever need. Sailing literally out of his backyard/beach – that’s the way a vacation should be! On the calm days, my wife took beginner lessons and I went exploring in one of the kayaks. Overall, it was a great vacation!
