It’s been over 16 years from the moment I started my journey in kitesurfing and 14 years since that road trip to La Ventana, and oh boy what a trip that was. It hooked me and my friends to this amazingly full of life desert surrounded by cardon cacti and the great Sea of Cortez. During this journey of chasing the wind and waves back and forth from here to there, we made many great friends and had great opportunities. We learned the art of teaching and sharing our passion for kitesurfing holidays in the San Francisco Bay area, where we have been coaching circa 2013. We were able to share the magic of La Ventana by organizing kite camps. We are now ready to continue and build on this journey as Saladita kite school.

These experiences have given us the time to grow, evolve, and get together with an amazing crew of talented people that today is designing the Saladita holiday experience.
