The land has rivers on either side which created a nice sandy, shallow bottom. The wind comes clean across 3,089 sq mi of water and is south of the volcano so the wind is less turbulent.

Yesterday I discovered an epic riding area. I knew it existed but just hadn´t found it yet. The other day I was on my way to the border to pick up my mom and as I passed the wind farm I noticed the water levels of the lake dropped and a bit of beach emerged. The beach is part of an eco-community called La Joya. I spoke with the project manager Himat about wanting to kite from his beach and he was ok with it as long as we joined him for lunch. La Joya is just past the wind farm on the way to the Costa Rica border. The land has rivers on either side which created a nice sandy, shallow bottom. The wind comes clean across 3,089 sq mi of water and is south of the volcano so the wind is less turbulent. Yesterday was a great wind day and for most of it I rode my 7m in like 25knots. At one point the wind died down but I had my 12m ready to go and that worked fine. La Joya is a bump and jump area but the size of the waves make for good air time. The resort itself is set up perfectly for kiting. The main lodge is made up of three king size rooms with hot water, a/c and wifi. There is modern, fully equipped kitchen that you can use or for an additional fee get a private chef. The front decking area is 27ft long, perfect for untangling lines. It is about 10ft wide and can easily accommodate 3 fully inflated kites for drying. Himat informed me they have a boat which can be hired out for down winders. A guide is required if you are looking to do a down winder due to unknown debris in the water.
