WHAT! Palm Trees on the point?

We couldn't believe it either but one morning this spring, there it stood, a 12 foot fabricated palm tree recently transplanted from La Ventana by Jay Connor,  the tree's creator.  

Jay is also famous down south for his "burning bush fiesta" complete with blue flame sand campfire.  There is never a dull moment when he's around.

As mysterious as it arrived about a week later, 2 pink flamingoes were seen foraging under the outdoor carpet palm fronds.

Kevin Trejo made several attempts to purchase the tree as a permanent fixture but fate thought otherwise.

Thanks Jay for providing the subject for this issue's mast-head.  We look forward to seeing you and your son this Fall.

This dance party of crows rocks out to the driving beat of the Techno-crats, blaring out of a campsite in the beach break .  They were later escorted from the point after exposing themselves & using abusive language to

nearby campers.

Message from Senor KT

to all my special friends -

I would like to take a moment to say thank  you to all of you that have supported me over the years.  It has been heartwarming to see the great positive response to the new SoloSports.

I have a great staff that has given me a strong commitment to make SoloSports the best adventure sports travel company ever.  They share my dreams of keeping Punta San Carlos a wonderful place  for everyone as well as improving our services to enhance your Baja experience.

I hope to have the opportunity to meet all my old friends here in the campo and look forward to making new friends as well.

muchas gracias mis amigos

Abundance of Sand Makes  Best Season for Kite Launches

photo early June

What a  season for sand.  This is truly a phenomenal year for sand in the beach break.  Normally by June all the rocks are exposed from the point to the Island.  Kite boarders are taking advantage of the conditions by launching at the island end of the beach break.  Sailors & surfers are also happy to see such friendly launch conditions.

It could all end with arrival of a big south. but for now - carpe diem.

 

Yet Another Close Encounter

One more Close encounter

Anna-Tom-Dave

B.C. Canuck - Dave Heath and his soul companion Anna were surprised recently when they stopped to offer assistance to a stranger parked on the dirt road. The man offered them a beer and remarked to Dave that had they spent an evening with mutual friends 5 years earlier in Patagonia, Tierra del Fuego - So. America.  That rivals SoloSport's guests the Miller brothers seeing me on stage at their high school in Surratsville Md. - thirty five years ago!

Synchronicity at the Chili Bowl

June 4, 2004

Chuck Patterson, Corky Cullen &

Kevin Trejo

participated in a kite surfing expression session that had the crowd on the cliff cheering with every move.  To quote one spectator

"it was sublime".

ebade,ebade,ebade ......that's all folks

World windsurfing touring pros massed at the Chili -Bowl recently in the most unusual reality show yet - the Tropical Energy Challenge. Brainchild of English pro sailor Tristan Boxford -ensured a top notch line-up. Keith Taboul, Kevin Pritchard, Jason Polakow, Levi Siver, Jason Pryor, Tristan Boxford, Baptiste Gossein, Robby Swift & Kauli Seadi repeatedly wowed  all in attendance with outstanding performances at the Chili Bowl.  Supporting the event was a staff of 25 TV/Film production crew including renowned action photographer Erik Aeder.  There were a few Baja hijinks including a stranded grip truck in the main arroyo and a rumor of a stealth expose article for Rolling Stone. Local fisherman Rudy rounded up a tractor and a few friends to save the day.  The rumor smoldered in the background for the entire event.

   

It was a good event and everyone was very impressed with the pro's performances on & off the water.  Once the footage has been edited down expect to see it somewhere on your cable dial perhaps even later this year.

We have been sworn to secrecy by the show's producers to keep the intrigue at a Hollywood high, so that's about all we are going to say except "stay tuned".

Campo SoloSports Improves Guest Experience with upgrades

 

This is the year of the rec room improvements! First a DVD/VHS TV theater sound system, then the group dining table that seats 15. Pool, Foos ball, Ping-Pong & darts and still after dinner favorites when the "Big Lebowski" or any other of the campos cinema greats isn't playing.  

Emerita, our Queen of the Cocina has enhanced our menu with her famous home made chili rellenos, Rosario Fish Tacos and the best Chicken Mole I've ever tasted.  Rudy's Jalepeno Rouletto is still the crowd pleaser on select nights, just don't let Baja fate serve you that molten lava chili pepper that gives the dish its name.

Ooh-a la Punta pinup of the month

Tequila, CorralejoCorralejo Tequila - Hacienda Corralejo was founded in 1755 and was the first commercial producer of tequila in Mexico, with copper pot stills from Spain, wood-fired adobe brickovens, and French oak barrels for aging. Today, over 200 years later, production continues at Corralejo much as it did in the past.  click here for nude photo

Corralejo Reposado Tequila won the Grand Award in 1997.

Hand-harvested weber blue agave hearts (pinas) are slowly baked in adobe ovens, then crushed in a stone mill; the "aguamiel" (honey water) is fermented, then double-distilled in copper pot stills, and aged in barrels made from Limousin white oak barrels from France. Each Corralejo bottle is hand-blown and hand-labeled, individually numbered and registered to ensure its authenticity. WOW!

Editor's note-

Corralejo Tequila takes pride in its heritage as the top quality, hand-crafted producer of Mexico's first and finest tequila. Blind tasted in Mexico City against the country's 21 top tequilas, the SoloSports Campo Staff gives it a whompin' 3 thumbs up...and like revenge...a drink best served frosted.  SALUD!!!!!!!!!.
