COLOMBIA - Windsurfing into the Unknown Film

I’m really happy to publish this post about the new film Windsurfing into the Unknown.
This is a film, about the journey of Colombian windsurfer Camilo Galeano together with professional windsurfers Michi Rossmeier (Austria) and Phil Soltysiak (Canada) to discover windsurfing spots and new places in Colombia.
They windsurfed in Puerto Velero near Barranquilla, Cabo de la Vela in the Guajira desert, some wavesailing in Cartagena, and the Rosario Islands.
Thank you Camilo, Michi and Phil for showing the great windsurfing in Colombia!!!

Check out the video below and at the official website:

Colombian Kitesurfing Association Video

I like this video of the Colombian Kitesurfing Association / ColombiaKite trip to Cabo de la Vela, Colombia.

Specially 30 seconds in when Jota Salazar goes flying. Pretty entertaining.

This video was produced by the ColombiaKite team.
Check out their website for more information on kitesurfing in Colombia.

Cabo de la Vela is a kitesurfing and windsurfing paradise due to its strong offshore thermal winds that blow 360 days a year. Also the landscape is so beautiful.


Surf Trip - Beautiful Waves in Nuqui, Colombia - Jan 2010

Check out these beautiful waves a short 10 minute walk from El Cantil Ecolodge in Nuqui, Colombia on the Pacific Coast. Nuqui is the best place in Colombia to go surfing and to go whale watching.

Here is a Surf trip video in January 2010 with Alexandro Basile, local Nuqui surfer "El Piyi", and a couple of friends from California.
