I camped on Kirk's site for a week last winter and I would highly
that's because I was there during the less consistent days of December.
I just got a flier in the mail from him and he's offering a good
discount for Nov 15 to Dec something, I think it's about 30% cheaper.
Once your out at the site you'll have almost zero expenses. I lived
like a king on about $10 a day (including beer). You walk up to Paunchos
for a great Mexican breakfast, and watch the wind line march across the
bay til it turns on at about 11AM. The campsites are perfect! You have a
sweeping view of the mountains, bay, island, and desert. With lots of
company from the local hummingbirds sipping on the suguaro cactus. You
come to realize how "alive" the desert really is.
You ask about other windsurfing venues? I heard that Mr. Bill was
looking at La Ventana, and has purchased some land. But I don't think
he'll be set up this winter. Other rentals? Nope
One year I stayed at the hotel of my choice and just had Kirk pick me
up wherever I wanted in La Paz. It's a little more costly, but then you
can party in one of my favorite Mexican towns, sail all afternoon and
then get dropped off in time for dinner.
I've never stayed at the "shred palace"/ B&B. Seems like a place where
you talk windsurfing (and only windsurfing) all night.
