We are just back from one week of multi sports water activity in Punta San Carlos, Baja Mexico where Solosports hosted our annual F-One wave camp. We had a great time with a dozen guys that came from as far as Israel to experience the beauty of Baja and the waves of of PSC (short for Punta San Carlos) and to get a go at the 2020 collection of kites (Bandit-2020 and bandit-S), boards (new Mitu and Shadow boards), Wing (Swing), Foilboards (Rocket SUP, Rocket Wing), Hydrofoils (Gravity 1800 and 2200). This spot is turning into the best playground possible if you want to kitesurf (of course!), but also SUP surf, SUP foil, Wing Foil, Wing Surf, Surf Foil, and more. So much so that we are planning a camp with a focus on Wingsurfing next year. Stay tuned to that. F-One has all the best gear possible for Wing surfing with the Swing, but also its Gravity series foil and multitude of boards

Last night kicked off the first St Francis YC Thursday Night Kite for the season. We could not have asked for better conditions. Fog in the distance at the north end of the bridge but perfect sunshine and steady wind on the course and at the beach. 27 racers flying around the course on 11M kites, with perfect power was a great way to kick off the season.
