Ultra Light – 2mm Dyneema Tent Guy Guide Reflective Green Rope – 200kg Breaking Strain – Lengths in Meters – Suitable for sailing, dinghy, yachting, cruising, racing, kite surfing – 25 Meter
  • This listing is for 25 meters in length.
  • 2mm Dyneema rope, stronger than kevlar. 16 strand with polyester outer (the reflective part). This is because Dyneema is extremely strong under tension, but not with abrasion, hence the polyester/Dyneema gives the best of both worlds. Flexibility and strength. You can buy thinner weaker examples (say 0.75mm), but we prefer the marginal increase in diameter for the knowledge that you have the added strength in the bag. Approx 1.9mm diameter, very low stretch, 2.8g weight per meter.
  • For camping, standard or ultra light, you do not need thicker. The breaking strain is much higher than any tent can handle. If this snaps, please send us pictures of the tent in the morning if you can still find it! Please note, variations are in meters.
  • Reflective, so no more tripping over at night…hopefully. Extremely strong, as per above and very light. You spend a fortune on the best tents, equip it with the best guy lines.

The Perfect Setting For Mexico Kitesurfing

La Ventana: The name itself conjures up images of endless horizons and gentle sea breezes. This charming coastal town is situated along the southeastern coast of the Baja Peninsula in Mexico. Known for its stunning landscapes, warm waters, and consistent winds, it’s a kite surfer’s dream come true.

The magic of La Ventana lies in its unique geography. The north wind here is remarkably reliable, thanks to the Venturi effect created by Cerralvo Island. Combine that with the thermal suction from the rising hot air of the desert peninsula, and you have a recipe for kite surfing perfection.

Wind and Waves

The winds in La Ventana typically kick in late morning, starting gently and steadily building up to 15-25 mph in the afternoon. This consistency allows for several hours of exhilarating kite surfing every day. Mornings and evenings tend to be calm, providing ample opportunities for other activities or simply unwinding on the pristine beaches.

For those who crave an extra adrenaline rush, keep an eye out for the epic days of the big Nortes. These high-wind days are sprinkled throughout the season, delivering fantastic high-wind sailing and impressive swells for the more daring kitesurfers.

Gear Up

If you’re planning your kitesurfing adventure during December, January, or February, consider packing a full wetsuit with short sleeves (3mm/2mm), especially if you’re susceptible to the cold. During the early and late seasons, a shorty or spring suit should suffice. Don’t forget to bring along gloves, booties, and a helmet if you prefer added protection while sailing or kiting.

Ventana Windsports has you covered when it comes to equipment rentals. Sail sizes range from 3.2 to 7.5, and they even offer Windfoil boards and sails for those lighter wind days. Wetsuits and harnesses are available for rent, and all equipment is meticulously rigged and ready at their beachside bodega.

One of the highlights of this kite surfing haven is the resort’s prime location. Situated along a long, sandy launch area with negligible shore break, it offers a wide, sweeping beach downwind. In case you find yourself in need of assistance, there’s an ATV rescue service to ensure your safety. While hotel guests enjoy priority access to rental gear, there’s plenty available for walk-ins as well.

Lessons for All Levels

Kite surfing is a sport that demands a unique blend of strength, balance, and finesse. Learning it on your own can be a long and frustrating journey, often leading to the reinforcement of bad habits. That’s where qualified instruction comes in, and Ventana Windsports has you covered with an onsite instructor available for all skill levels.

Professional instruction can significantly expedite your learning curve and help you avoid common pitfalls. Whether you’re a beginner looking to grasp the basics or an experienced windsurfer seeking to refine your skills, these lessons can be the best investment you make for improving your sailing ability.

The Evolution of Windsurfing: From Invention to Olympic Sport

Windsurfing, a thrilling blend of sailing and surfing, has captured the hearts of water sports enthusiasts worldwide. Its origins are a testament to human ingenuity and aeronautical engineering. This article delves into the rich history of windsurfing, from its inception to its current status as an Olympic sport.

The Birth of an Idea

In the late 1960s, a wave of innovation swept across California, combining elements of aerospace engineering and surf culture to give birth to windsurfing. While various concepts of sailboards existed before, it was Jim Drake who would become known as “The Father of Windsurfing.” Educated as an aeronautical engineer at Stanford University, Drake envisioned a sport that combined the simplicity of skiing with the exhilaration of sailing.

Drake’s patented invention, marketed as the “Windsurfer,” emerged as the iconic image of windsurfing for over two decades. He co-founded Windsurfing International alongside businessman Hoyle Schweitzer. Together, they introduced the world to the thrill of windsurfing, which rapidly gained popularity in Europe and North America during the 1970s and 1980s.

Innovations that Shaped the Sport

Windsurfing’s early days were marked by long boards that were ideal for low wind conditions. These boards allowed a wide range of participants, including families with young children, to enjoy the sport. However, the 1980s ushered in a period of rapid innovation that transformed windsurfing. A global community of equipment designers, manufacturers, athletes, and travel professionals collaborated to propel the sport forward.

This era witnessed the development of planing short boards, foot straps, harnesses, and more stable sails, shattering world speed sailing records. Windsurfing’s retail momentum, however, faced stiff competition from emerging action sports like mountain biking, snowboarding, stand-up paddleboarding (SUP), and kiteboarding. Many windsurfing schools had to adapt, shifting their focus to teach these new sports.

The Resurgence through Foiling

After experiencing lean years in the 2000s, windsurfing saw a remarkable revival, thanks to the explosion of foiling. Foil boards, equipped with hydrofoil fins beneath the surface, allowed windsurfers to lift out of the water and glide silently even in lighter winds. This technological advancement breathed new life into the sport, attracting enthusiasts eager for fresh challenges.

The Pioneers of Windsurfing

Windsurfing’s history is not solely the story of Jim Drake. It also credits other early sailboard pioneers. Newman Darby, an American, conceptualized and built a sailboard with a universal joint in the 1950s. In England, Peter Chilvers invented a sailboard in 1958. These inventions, predating Drake’s, contributed to the sport’s development.

The collaboration between Jim Drake and Hoyle Schweitzer was instrumental in shaping the modern sport of windsurfing. While Drake engineered the original concept, Schweitzer played a pivotal role in patenting, marketing, and selling the Windsurfer brand. Their partnership created a sporting phenomenon that continues to thrive today.

Drake’s Ingenious Prototype

Jim Drake’s engineering prowess was on full display when he crafted the world’s first windsurfer prototype in 1967. He meticulously designed and constructed components like the wishbone boom, daggerboard, and mast foot from laminated teak wood. The custom sail was made from Dacron sailcloth, while the board required an extra-large foam blank for adequate flotation. Drake’s innovative approach laid the foundation for modern windsurfing.

On May 21, 1967, Jim Drake, accompanied by his family, embarked on a historic journey, marking the first modern windsurfing adventure. His dedication to refining the sport’s mechanics and his ability to create a workable prototype in his home garage underscored his commitment to windsurfing’s evolution.

From Skate to Windsurfer

Originally, Drake and Schweitzer intended to name their creation “Skate” (SK8). However, the name was later changed to “Baja Board” in early 1968. It wasn’t until a chance encounter with a passerby, Bert Salisbury, that the name “Windsurfer” was born. Salisbury’s suggestion led to the adoption of this now-iconic name, which became synonymous with the sport itself.

The Legal Battles

The journey of windsurfing was not without its legal disputes. Jim Drake and Hoyle Schweitzer filed the very first windsurfing patent in 1968, which was later granted in 1970. As the sport rapidly gained popularity, patent disputes erupted. Schweitzer aggressively protected his patent rights, even as sub-licenses were granted to manufacturers worldwide.

The sport’s growth led to a complex web of legal battles, with companies presenting prior art to dispute Windsurfing International’s rights to the invention. Innovators like Newman Darby, Peter Chilvers, and Richard Eastaugh were all recognized for their contributions. Ultimately, patent disputes and evolving legal precedents shaped the windsurfing landscape.

The Triumph of a Global Phenomenon

By the late 1980s, windsurfing had become a global phenomenon, and the rivalry between the European and American markets was at its peak. The sport’s rapid expansion and evolving equipment choices set the stage for a future where windsurfing would thrive on the international stage.

The Olympic Dream

In 1984, windsurfing achieved a significant milestone when it became an official Olympic sport. This recognition solidified its status as a competitive discipline that showcased the skill and athleticism of windsurfers on a global stage. The IQfoil class was introduced for the 2024 Olympics in France, signaling windsurfing’s continued evolution as a competitive sport.

Windsurfing Today

Today, windsurfing has evolved into various disciplines, including slalom, wave, freestyle, and foiling. The equipment has diversified, with boards tailored for different styles of windsurfing. Longboards are ideal for lighter winds and course racing, while shortboards are designed for planing conditions. Freestyle boards cater to acrobatic tricks, while racing longboards adhere to strict one-design classes.

Windsurfing equipment has seen remarkable advancements, with boards incorporating lightweight materials like carbon fiber and kevlar. The sport continues to attract enthusiasts of all ages, offering thrilling experiences in the world’s waters.

In conclusion, windsurfing’s journey from a revolutionary idea to an Olympic sport is a testament to human innovation and passion. Its rich history, marked by invention, legal disputes, and technological advancements, has shaped it into the thrilling and inclusive sport we know today. As windsurfing continues to evolve, it remains a source of excitement and adventure for water sports enthusiasts worldwide.
