Guest from the sky...



Paramotor is a generic name for the propulsive portion of a powered paraglider ("PPG"). It consists of a frame that combines the motor, propeller, harness (with integrated seat) and cage. It provides two attachment points for the risers of a paraglider wing that allows for powered flight.

The pilot controls thrust via a hand-held throttle and steers using the paraglider's brake toggles similar to sport parachutists

Merci a nos amis Quebecois pour passer nous visiter au Sandos Playacar et voler avec nous! Super sympa!

2010/2011 Kiteboarding Events in Baja.

Mexican Nationals , La Ventana, December 17-21, 2010

Jessica Withington Sanchez, co-owner of Playa Central, has partnered with Andres Santacruz, president of the Mexican Kitesurf Association, to bring this second annual event to Baja Sur. The event is open to Mexican Nationals only and will highlight the best of the best in freestyle and racing.

The competition will also kick off the official grand opening of Playa Central, located near the main campground, a 4,000 square foot warehouse with plans to house a kite shop, kite school, restaurant, bakery/café and “Rider’s Bunk”, two rooms with two bunk beds each which will cater to young up and coming kiters to train in La Ventana for a few weeks or more.

Lord of the Wind Showdown, Los Barriles, January 12-16, 2011

Conveniently located just 45 minutes outside of Cabo San Lucas, the East Cape Rotary Club in Los Barriles and Governor Narciso Agundez of B.C.S. have partnered with the windsurfing and kiteboarding communities to host this first annual event for Los Barriles.

With $19,000 in cash plus prizes up for grabs, the event will consist of course races, downwind slaloms, a big air contest, freestyle windsurfing contest, kite/windsurf clinics, SUP racing, and gear demos. On the beach, they’ll have nightly beach parties, great food, volleyball tournaments, a bikini contest, poker run, zips lines, a 5km run, and horseshoes with more in the works. Proceeds from this event will be given to the Rotary Club to continue its efforts in the local community and with area children. Additional proceeds will be applied to the Lord of the Wind Showdown in 2012.

La Ventana Classic and KiteXpo, January 16-24, 2011

Tim Hatler of Palapas Ventana and friends started doing trips to Isla Cerralvo looking for flat water spots. Pro rider Adam Koch happened to be in town after Adam’s Catalina crossing and the idea for the first Classic event came together in 2005 with help from Red Bull. The event quickly gained popularity and grew into a fundraiser for the community and schools.

In 2008, The Kiteboarder Magazine partnered with Tim to get behind the cause and bring in kite companies to offer free demos of all the newest gear and accessories – products that most wouldn’t be able to see, or even worse try, until things thawed out back at home. Today, the event has raised just under $50,000 which has gone straight back into community projects. For 2011, the event promises to be even better with more than 25 kite and accessory companies participating in the KiteXpo. Day clinics or trips with pro riders will be offered to the island and coast January 16-20 focusing on racing and strapless skills, as well as an all girls clinic. January 21-24 marks the main event and official kick off of the La Ventana Classic and KiteXpo, with an 11.5 mile island crossing (The Classic), short course buoy races, Big Air/Old Skool competition, SUP Paddle Royale, Downwind Paddle Race and some more surprises in store.

With live bands and food on the beach, a real Lucha Libre match (think Nacho Libre with Jack Black), Caution “golf’ tournament, and other activities planned from the creative and somewhat twisted minds of Tim and emcee extraordinaire Neil Hutchinson, come help do a lot of good by having a ton of fun!
