The winds are regulary in between 16 to 25 knots, but we have at least 1 day a week with 25 to 35 knots, what is amazing is that you will be riding almost every single day of the high season (From AGO to MAY) and in the low season we ride 3-4 days a week with 15 knots average.
Paracas is a natural reserve with the highes concentration of sealife, evn thought this there are not life treatning species present. The bay is a U shape bay so its incredibly safe, but we have perfect surf spots at 20 min car drive, a kite Speed zone in one of the shores of the bay with butter water and for the down winders the Paracas Pisco (12 Miles) is a MUST!!!
Paracas has lots to offer not only for riders, also for their families, we have great world class tour centers very close (Nasca Lines, Huacachina and others).

Amazing place! - Been there 3 years already during Xmas and NY, and it is fantastic! The whole bay just for few kiters, flat water and consistent wind everyday. A rescue boat in case you need it and warm air temperatures, but still need a wetsuit cause the water is cooler, especially towards the end of the day.
