Just back from 3 weeks in Cozumel and the bad news is the Mex Gov has closed the road access to the Wave Ranch for enviromental concerns. There are some other great riding spots along the East side that are getting more popular. Chen Rio, Playa Bonita and St Martins Beach are all great wave riding with restaurants right at the beach. With so many great areas, everyone is spreading out along the coast and the spots are never crowded. The good news is that Adrian from Cozumel Kiteboarding has made arrangements with the Managers at the Punta Sur Eco Park to allow kiting in this previously closed area. You can only go when accompanied by Adrian (PASA Certified) and you have to sign a waiver and pay the normal $10 entry fee. We rode the bay in front of the light house and it was some of the best riding I have had in 7 years of kiting. The bay is huge and you launch at the side of the bay from this great sandy point, no beach break! Close to the point the faces were 4-6 feet and out in the middle of the bay they were 10-14 feet. The closer you got to the lighthouse, the bigger the waves got. You choose your comfort zone and stay there. Cozumel waves don't break over a reef, just sand bottom, so they are very friendly and soft. Even if you screw-up, you don't get hammered. A small group of only 6 of us rode 12-9M kites and to say the day was "just f**king awesome" is an understatement. If you are heading to Cozumel, get a hold of Adrian and check this place out. When I am on my death bed at 99 years old, I will remember this session.
