Los Barriles, located in Baja California Sur, Mexico, on the shores of the Sea of Cortez is kitesurfers and windsurfers paradise. No wonder, the peninsula is affected by several regular wind patterns. The La Paz region, Los Barriles is situated in, experiences a wind which drops the effective temperature and can raise heavy seas in the surrounding waters. The northern half of the peninsula has its rainy season in the winter - storms come from the North Pacific and are generally moderate in strength when they reach Baja so the best time to come here is November through April; that's when “El Norte” wind arrives in Los Barriles drawing wind seekers from all over the world. The warm winds blow almost every day over those 5 months at a consistent range of 18-22 knots. In addition to the consistent wind, you will find wide open, sandy, beaches here, lining the turquoise waters of the Bay of Palms offering safe and beautiful launching and landing areas. And right here, ExotiKite Kiteboarding, one of the pioneer kiteboarding schools in Baja California Sur has its home.
