Come Experience the Exhilaration of Kiteboarding and Windsurfing in Los Cabos!
Nestled in between the North Pacific Ocean and the shimmering Sea of Cortez, the Los Cabos area—Los Barriles in particular, along the East Cape—is a well-known destination for windsurfing and kiteboarding enthusiasts because of the ideal weather conditions and stunning natural beauty of the surrounding ocean. The best season to partake in kiteboarding or windsurfing is from November through March, during which time you can feel the rush of exhilaration as you tame powerful sea breezes, or bask in the peace and tranquility of sailing along clear, blue waves in the open water.
Whether you’re a seasoned veteran or you’ve never even touched a board before, Los Cabos has a myriad of kiteboarding and windsurfing options for you! Skilled boarders will revel at the strong winds on the East Cape, while beginners will enjoy the pleasant afternoon gusts along Bahia de Los Angeles, Bahia Concepcion, or Playa El Médano in Cabo San Lucas. Read on to learn more about the local businesses in the area that provide these services.
