Another incredible week of strapless kiting in remote Baja Mexico

Photo gallery and video by our photographer for the week, Stu Gibson. The week held plenty of waves and wind but towards the end as the wind backed off we were able to find time to do some mountain biking, SUPing and surfing. Big thanks to Kevin's team at SoloSports who looked after us all so well. See you again in 2020!

SoloSports Kite Weeks: wave clinics in Baja, Mexico

Written by Ben Wilson, Posted in Interviews

The place to go for serious progression

SoloSports Kite Weeks: wave clinics in Baja, Mexico

There’s a reason why people travel to such a remote part of the world; SoloSports is a wind and wave machine.

I kited every day for two weeks during the two consecutive Kite Weeks. The degree of progression made by guests here is second to none and that effect really comes down to the consistency of the wind and gentle waves that give everyone the opportunity to practise turns again and again till they’re comfortable. 

When you’re not kiting there’s mountain biking, surfing, SUPing and siestas. Photographer Stu Gibson who joins each year to capture everyone's progress and act as unofficial mountain bike guide. 

We’ll be back again same time next year so if you’re interested in improving your existing wave skills or moving on to a directional board then this is the trip for you. The group size is small so you have plenty of personal attention and you really won't find a better kite haven than SoloSports. 

Next available trip is 4-11 May 2019. Click here for details.

SoloSports Kite Weeks April/May 2017

Looking back on two weeks of Mexico magic in Punta San Carlos

SoloSports Kite Weeks April/May 2017

I've just returned from hosting two small coaching-focussed camps at SoloSports in Baja, Mexico. These weeks are not for the faint-hearted; it's an adventure from the moment you arrive at SoloSport's rocky airstrip till the moment you land back at San Diego's Brown Airfield. Kevin, Joey and the team down in Baja take care of us all with amazing food, the best kiting, mountain biking, surfing and SUP'ing gear, ice-cold cervezas, and comfortable tents overlooking the waves.

FREEDOM Kite Mag Goes to the Mexico Kite Week

A first-hand account

FREEDOM Kite Mag Goes to the Mexico Kite Week

It’s not everyday you get an email inviting you to the other side of the world, to camp out in the middle of the desert and do nothing but the important things in life. Yes, of course, like kite, surf and chill.

It was time to pack for the next adventure.

 

What’s unique about this particular camp is unlike most kite trips, you don’t need to take kite or surfing gear! Apart from your own harness and your cold-water rubber, everything you need for this adventure is ready waiting for you.

 

It’s refreshing rocking up to the airport with only one bag instead of the normal rigmarole of getting hassled by the check-in agents for having too much gear, then having to trawl through airports and taxis with your arms full and three trolleys all fighting each other. One bag feels so good!

SoloSports Kite Week, Mexico

The perfect trip to improve you wave riding

SoloSports Kite Week, Mexico

I was lucky enough to spend two weeks earlier this year running Kite Weeks at SoloSports in Punta San Carlos, Baja Mexico. The setup is incredible and we couldn't have asked for better conditions. The place is incredible for kiting but also provides excellent surfing, windsurfing, mountain biking and SUPing - it's adventure sports paradise. Massive thank you to Kevin Trejo and the crew for having me this year, I'm already looking forward to next year's trips! 

I'll be running three trips to SoloSports next year and have just released dates and details. Check out the video for more info.
