Mexico Catamaran All Womens Kiteboarding Retreat
January 26-February 1, 2019

This women's kiteboarding camp can be anything you want it to be... From working on advanced unhooked tricks to working on building your community of female kiteboarders. We're bringing a small group of women together for an inspiring kite vacation that will help you build a solid foundation, give you off the water tips and tricks and help you take your kiteboarding to the next level. 

Our belief is that women are fantastic at supporting and inspiring one another and we want to foster that. We believe in adventuring, learning and kiting our butts off. We believe in empowering you in your kiteboarding, getting over hurdles and increasing your confidence both on and off the water.

The Kiteboarding

Ever wanted to learn how to boat rig? Or dream of sailing around to epic kite spots from your own private catamaran? Join us! Not only does a week of straight kiteboarding really advance your level but learning to kite in new locations pushes you outside of your comfort zone. Our camps provide an empowering group setting for women to learn intermediate to advanced skills. Included is 5 days (2-4 hrs/day) of professional instruction from two professional kiteboarders. Plus off the water skills workshops!

Example trip goals: First jumps, riding toe-side, upwind progression, backrolls, unhooked tricks, getting comfortable on your surfboard, learning to ride a foil board, jumping higher!

This trip is for intermediate and advanced riders.

 

Itinerary:

Day 1: Board the boat and depart for Balandra, the most beautiful beach on the outskirts of La Paz. With its dazzling white sands, turquoise waters and the majestic icon rock of the city “El Ongo” Balandra is the perfect back drop for our first night at sea with happy hour, grilled fish, and introductions and goals for the trip
Day 2: An early morning snorkel and SUP session, some on deck Yoga and we are off searching for dolphins, a snorkel with the playful sea lion pups at Los Islotes and then at wind o'clock we dock for our first Kite session anchor at San Franciscito
Day 3: A morning hike with stunning views of our yacht , sup and snorkeling, a visit to a tiny fishing village El Pardito Island, and then a downwinder from Punta Salinas to Punta Amortajada on Isla San Jose with our catamaran sailing behind our kiters and the panga following for safety. Anchor Bahia Amortajada for the night
Day 4: Big Downwinder day as we motor north looking for Blue Whales and Humpbacks and then pump up and go as we kite down the windy San Jose Channel from Mangle solo to Punta Salinas.
Anchor Punta Salinas for the night
Day 5: Morning wakeboarding session and an island cruise. Dock at noon and debrief at the infinity pool with margaritas. Shuttle back to check in top your casita at Palapas Ventana and a gala dinner celebration.

I attended Sensi & Colleen’s first kite clinic in El Cuyo. What an epic fun week I had riding with these two inspiring pro kiteboarders and other amazing women from all over the world! I was very impressed by how well the ladies organized the event. From the travel logistics, accommodation, food, morning yoga, daily kite chats/instructions, time on the water, and exploring the surrounding areas they really did think of everything! Colleen and Sensi both took time to understand each of our goals and offered tips on and off the water that helped each of us progress. I hope I get to ride with these talented ladies again and definitely recommend all kite girls attend their retreat if you get the chance!
