It’s windy in Belize

Kitesurfing in Belize

Out in the island last week the wind was up and the skies cleared after our recent storm, so the crew was out on the water trying out our new kitesurfing equipment. Our guests from Vela and our kitesurf instructor ripped it up in the bay of the island before heading out across the sand flats to the next island, 3 miles down the reef. The sand flats between the islands provide a stunning area for sailing, racing above this shallow, coral-free bottom. The reflection of the sun off the bright white sand creates an illusion of floating above the surface. Large rays and fish are constantly encountered and easily seen as they try to bolt out of the way, always an exciting moment for both the kitesurfer and the fish…
