Do I need a wetsuit for la ventana Mexico next week?

I’ll be heading to La Ventana in Baja. Does anybody know if I should pack a wetsuit this time of year?

Thanks

Re: Escape From Glass Window Bridge - A Kiting Sea Story

I came across this story of recent drowning in Bahamas. The drowning had nothing to do w kiting but i remembered reading Ricks description of this place - is the same spot where rick had his near death experience. http://m.tribune242.com/news/2018/mar/06/police-hunt-us-man-swept-sea/?templates=mobile

Re: Travel Question...Union Island

Our boat did go out from st Lucia. We left as the sun was setting and sailed all night to get to union. Didn’t lose a kite day, we were pulling in to frigate just after sunrise, and the guests slept during the passage. It was an extremely rough ride though. Likewise on the way back we made the passa...

Re: Travel Question...Union Island

I did it in March 2017. Here is my two cents... In my opinion the only way to do the grenadines is by boat. There are several catamaran operators geared to kiting. We went with Zenith Ocean Voyages, and captain Gerrard who is the owner/ operator aboard the meercat. Most memorable was the five star c...

Re: Looking for other kiteboarders near Dauphin Island

Not sure about Dauphin, but in pensacola there are a few of us. Out on the beach can ride on sound side or Gulf side depending on the wind direction or your preference for waves or flat. Most people go to an area called Big Sabine, on National seashore section of beach east of pensacola beach and we...

Re: Airstyle - The Next Level - Toby Braeuer

Amazing tricks. The riding is so smooth, and in my opinion your riding style is the most incredible to watch of any of the styles. But, I would offer this critique... For all the smoothness and style present in your riding, the video is really lacking style. Counting and numbering your tricks, expla...

Re: Inflatable wetsuit

clew in - integrating backup flotation into a kite harness is a damn good idea. Hopefully some industry people are paying attention to this thread.

Re: Inflatable wetsuit

I know inflatable PFDs exist. I'd like it integrated into the wetsuit, which also already exists, just doesn't seem to be available to public for some reason.

Inflatable wetsuit

I was watching the movie "Distance Between Dreams" today. It's about big wave surfers paddling in to peahi. Many of these guys are using inflatable wetsuits, a concept that Shane Dorion came up with after a near death experience of getting held under. They operate by cracking a CO2 cartridge similar...
