2017 La Ventana Classic is Nukin!

The winds are strong, the competition is high and the fun is never ending!  A great turn out this year – lots of music, food, friends, gear, games and all for a great cause!

The last few days have seen great winds with most riders out on 7 – 10 meter kites.  Rasta beach (just below the Inn) has been packed with locals and visitors getting their wind fix.

Just north at the hot spring beach the Classic has been packed with competitors and spectators.  A great vibe is going on down there all in the spirit of helping the local schools.

Maui Mike is grilling up Hawaiian style BBQ tonight – it smells and looks great.  Kite company ambassadors our out in force with all the latest gear and swag too.  Just after dinner at 7PM the live music starts!  Hope to see you here!

Tomorrow is going to be another nukin’ day on the water with some great swell out in the triangle.  The winds haven’t stopped in three days – it’s the perfect time to get your big air jumping in or head out for a downwinder or venture out and go carve through the swell – everyone is out on the water enjoying the classic January weather here!
