Bahia Salinas that is still wild and untouched by the tourism. This mean that you can kite surf in an not crowded beach and disconnect for a while from the frenetic world. You can do a downwinder of 5/6 kms, visiting a reef with completely flat water, a protected island with turquoise water and finally surf little waves. (at the end of the bay) that they can be up to 4 feet with high tide.
The beach in and out the water has some stones and shells in certain areas, so booties (water shoes) are recommended especially for beginners that have to walk upwind. Then, sun blocker, lycra, board shorts, sun glasses with bungee, hat.
One could spend their whole life perfecting their riding, and still not attain perfection. So, while just sitting on a horse may appear easy, learning to ride well is just as difficult as learning to do any other sport well.
One of the most common questions. Most people can—and they love it! It is relatively easy to learn...most pick up the basics the first day of learning. Still a bit of a secret...all ages and skills levels can participate.
