Kite Beach

El Cuyo's long white sandy beaches that are perfect for launching and landing kites. Wide open spaces ensure kiteboarders have plenty of room to maneuver, making it an ideal location for both beginners and advanced riders. The beaches are well-maintained and stretch for miles.  

Offshore Wind? No problem, El Cuyo has a sweet offshore spot, Punta Caracol.  It features waist deep, flat water. No booties needed!  A great place for lessons and practicing tricks.  Access is by boat only.  We recommend boat support and supervision for non-experienced riders.


Did someone request a DOWNWINDER?  2 options to choose from, ranging from 1.5hrs to 3hrs along the coastline. Our downwinders feature boat support along the entire journey. Message us to find out more.

What kites sizes should you bring?  A common question with a difficult answer.  Kite size is dependent on wind to weight to board ratio.  The more you bring the more options you have!  And if all else fails, we can help you rent!

Lets just say a 7m-14m will cover 99% of wind conditions but we locals stick between 7m-12m.

A Local Recommendation:

December and January can be cold for us locals, so we do put on a 1-2mm wetsuit for those months. The rest of the season NO Wetsuits.  However sun protection is a must in whatever form.

For those of you coming from the Outer Banks NC, South Padre TX and/or La Ventana...Leave your booties at home, no need for them here.
