2018 Kite Surf Retreat

February 5 to 12, 2018


Join us for our annual kite surfing trip with Cabrinha team rider, Evan Netsch in Rincon, Puerto Rico.

Evan will be escorting us to various kite surfing spots on the northwest and southwest corners of the island to ride waves and/or flat water. We'll be staying at Villa Playa Maria in Rincon, Puerto Rico - a modern waterman retreat on one of the island's premiere point breaks.

Each day we'll assess the wind conditions and forecast before making the 1 hour drive north or south to our kiting destination. On the northern side of the island is Shacks - the well known kite surfing location that receives Caribbean trade winds and northwest swell. On the south side is La Parguerra - a flat water lagoon ideal for freestyle and jumping with a perimeter of mangrove trees separating the lagoon from the ocean.

We'll fly into Aguadilla airport (BQN) where we'll be greeted by the Villa Playa Maria staff and shuttled down to Rincon - 30 minutes away. Accommodations include a bedroom shared by you and one other guest (i.e bring a friend), a shared full size kitchen, a light breakfast, dinners on site prepared by our chef, salt water pool with swim up bar, access to stand up paddle boards, and beach access from the front yard.

Cost of the trip is $1,200 per person (airfare not included) with a $500 deposit to secure your spot. Availability is based on a first come first served basis. Please inquire about any other details by calling the WND&WVS shop at 802-540-2529 or by sending an email to shop@wndnwvs.com.

This is an epic opportunity for all of you intermediate and expert kiters looking to hone your wave riding skills. The winds and waves in Puerto Rico are very consistent this time of year, but please expect approximately half the days to be kiteable on average. We'll have plenty of other activities such as surfing, stand up paddling, snorkeling, and sun bathing for the days when the wind is challenging.

We hope you'll consider making the trip to join us.
