Mayan Wind Fest: Kitesurf, Wingfoil, Windsurf and Sailing in Yucatán! – The Yucatan Times

The Mayan Wind Fest is not just a festival. It is an official competition, showcasing the best level of riding and sailing in México. 

The Mayan Wind fest is the ultimate wind sports event during winter. The goal is to bring together as many kitesurfers, wingfoilers, windsurfers and sailors to enjoy the amazing playground of Cancún and Quintana Roo. To achieve that, we can count on the warm and steady trade winds (14-25 Knt average) the mexican caribbean has to offer, as well a some fun and innovative way to compete / ride together. This event is opened to everyone (pros & amateurs) and every level. Being a festival, you will also have an amazing time on land with great music and vibes all day and night.

The venue, Puerto Cancún sailing club & Shaka Vibes Watersports Center is amazing with a 850 m long beach with side wind, flat water and plenty of space to host hundreds or event thousands of riders. Cancún has direct and fairly economic flights from and to almost anywhere in America and Europe, and the spot is only 20 minutes away from the airport (we can help you with logistics, transportation and lodging.)
