AT PUNTA SAN CARLOS, BAJA
Punta San Carlos, Baja hosts world class side off wave sailing, surfing, SUP-ing, kiting, mountain biking and other desert adventure sports truly making it Baja’s multi-sport recreation destination. SoloSports Campo at PSC is located 275 miles south of San Diego, California in a secluded pristine coastal desert setting where majestic mountain mesas meet the blue Pacific. Punta San Carlos is well known for its mild surf making it a favorite by beginning wave sailors to pros. More challenging is the point and world famous Chili Bowl for those who crave a more exhilarating wave sailing experience. There are a myriad of sailing spots to keep the experience a pleasant one.
Your host at PSC is SoloSports Adventure Holidays. SoloSports has been providing guest services at PSC for over 25 years and offers the ultimate Punta San Carlos experience. Their campo on the ocean’s edge provides deluxe camping accommodations on a carpeted tarmac, local fare prepared by a professional cooking staff, a hosted cantina featuring chilled margaritas and our own indigenous libation – the Baja Fog. Guest services include a well stocked demo gear department featuring EZZY sails, RRD, Goya & Quatro and hot showers. A friendly, helpful Solo staff provides coaching in all sports as well as those amenities that make a memorable holiday experience. Transportation is provided by SoloSports via private plane from San Diego to the camp or land transportation via coach van. Because the Punta San Carlos Experience is so over whelming, SoloSports has coined the phrase “ you just don’t know, until you go”.
“Punta San Carlos is a south facing beach making it the perfect summer spot. Swells generated in the southern hemisphere are most active from May to October. Although it’s virtually impossible to second guess Mother Nature, it is predictable that July/August can usher in premiere surf & wind conditions. It is not uncommon to have consistent winds of 18-25 mph during this time making the contest period the perfect venue for a competition.”
-Words by Clark Merritt

–A quote from Head Judge, Keith Teboul
“So for me the event in Baja is close to my heart because it is where I learned to wavesail.
Going to HighSchool in San Diego made it an easy shot to hit San Carlos. Any chance I got I would go. We would pack all our stuff and head down for 2 weeks.
This was before SoloSports so there wasn’t anything. You would sleep under the stars….sail all day…make your dinner and pass out and do it allover again the next day.
So peaceful out in the middle of nowhere.
To now come back and have everything taken care of is even more special. You get to be part of group and enjoy some good times together.
I’m really looking forward to going back this year judging and competing……..”
