Kite and wind conditions in La Ventana:

 La Ventana and El Sargento villages were discovered by some north american windsurfers on 1985, La Ventana town has become the perfect kitesurfing and kiteboarding destination thanks to the steady and strong winds from mid October to March, side shore winds and also to the ‘L’ shape white sandy beach. Large and huge beaches with many kite spots to launch and very safe. You can ride long downwinds and at the end catch the beach, not letting you end up to the sea.

 The wind usually starts around 12:30 pm and ends around 5:30 pm, average from 15 to 25 knots. When a north cold front arrives, the wind picks up event to 30 knots. La Ventana has a great wind conditions due to the strong thermal plus the venturi effect between two big mountain ranges. Winter temps in the 70°Fs and 80s°F, can get a little bit cold at night, we suggest to use warm clothes. The water in the 70s °F, you can use a shorty or wetsuit during the cold days. The kite season in La Ventana is from mid october to april. The best months are November, December, January, February, March. Best Direction: N, NW, NNW. The wind forecasts won’t show exactly the wind speed because they don’t detect the venturi effect and the thermal. The key to know if it’s going to be a windy day, is to check the correct direction (N, NW or NNW) and at least a minimum of 6 to 10 knots, then you can ad around 7 knots more.
