Belize’s windy early season

Out on our Belize island we offer two wind sports: windsurfing and kiteboarding. We are open during the “dry” season, which is late November through May. The rest of the year it is too rainy to be able to offer adventure sport packages with reliably good weather. We can windsurf and kitesurf through our season, but it’s the windiest at the beginning of the season, late November &

Belize island sport equipment list – updated!

When we say we have a “multi-sport” adventure package in Belize, we aren’t kidding. Nobody in Belize, and as far as I know, nobody in the entire Caribbean has a kayak/surf/board fleet anything close to ours. We can’t help it, if we see some cool new gear, we just have to try it out on the island, so we then buy one, or two, or ten of them. It’s a great excuse to get a

The island carabiner game

One of the most outstanding features of a week on Adventure Island is how multi-sport the experience truly is. Snorkeling is by far my personal favorite, but I love the scuba diving, kayaking, and surfing, too. I never really got the hang of windsurfing on my last trip to the island but I’ll definitely give it another go the next time I visit. One of the most surprising “sports” I discovered

Belize windsurfing and kitesurfing

Last week was another windy week on our Belize island, and the wind sports were in full swing with kites and windsurfing action adding to the paddle and surfing events. We were able to sail to the neighboring islands and even got some kite action in the surf. Check out some of these shots from Victor’s GoPro camera; he sent these shots as soon as he got off the island. In addition to these b

It’s windy 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 s

Windsurfing and surfing on our Belize island

I am just off the island for a few days, and wanted to post these photos we have taken over the past 2 weeks. Since mid October we have been busy preparing for our winter adventure tours and building our new Belize Vela Windsport Center. We have set up our gear and are busy constructing our new kite and windsurf building, as well as setting up our sea kayaks, paddleboards, and surf kayaks. The win
