I know that the La Ventana kite expo was technically canceled this year for some lame ass reason but does anyone know if there are any of the kite company's still going to be down there doing demos?

The La Ventana Kitexpo was put on hold for 2013 as we have outgrown the event site and need to find another crossing route. Testing that on 130+ people isn't a good idea plus we had some other issues that contributed to this decision.....

For 2013, two demo events will happen in Baja

Lord of the Wind Kitexpo Jan 14-15, Los Barriles
Participating companies will be demoing gear from noon to 5p near the Exotikite/Los Barriles Kiteboarding complex.

La Ventana Kite Demo Week, Jan 16-20, La Ventana
Participating companies will be demoing gear at various places during the week. Daily announcements will be made by 9a at www.thekiteboarder.com and on La Ventana view newsletter RE: where the companies are. Some will be based out of Palapas Ventana, Captain Kirk's, Baja Joe's, Downwinder Inn, Ventana Bay Resort, Ventana Windsports and Playa Central while others will be at hot springs for the first downwinders of the day and will end with demos down by Baja Joe's/Ventana Windsports.

We expect about 10 companies to demo at each location. Burning Bush is Jan 19 this year.

For 2014 we have big plans to tie in the two Baja events. Bruce and his crew will kick everything off with Burning Bush January 11, followed by early week clinics in La Ventana January 12-15, then segue to the annual Classic and Kitexpo January 16-19. Depending on wind conditions, we will do a pro/vendor/invited guests only promotional downwinder for all interested parties from La Ventana to Los Barriles sometime between January 20-22, followed by Kitexpo demos at LOTW January 23-24, and ending with LOTW competitions, race and parties January 25-26.

We hope to see you in Baja!

Oh, well that is very very good news! I am sorry for the "lame ass" remark. It sounds like there is all kinds of good fun stuff still going on. I can't wait!

No Expo, but that doesn't mean no great times or great demos in Baja!!!

Had a great demo in Los Barrilles yesterday and the Liquid Force Crew will be setup at Playa Central (center of La Ventana- Big Yellow Building on the water) rideable days through the end of this week and weekend.

We have full quivers of 2013 ENVY and 2013 NRG kites as well as the new LF carbon wrapped surfboards, our new Influence, Drive, Element and DLX twintips and some new stuff no one's seen until now!!!

Find us at Playa Central or look for the White LF Van around town!!
