Palm Trees on the point?
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.
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

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
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.
all end with arrival of a big south. but for now - carpe diem.
Yet Another Close

One more Close
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!

The circular symbol on the new SoloSports
T-shirt is a petroglyth
from the Solstice site atop the San Carlos Mesa.
The symbol is
a representation of the
sun which played a very important role in the
lives of the native Americans who once inhabited the area.
We can't imagine why you wouldn't want to keep getting
our e-rag but I guess worse things happen at sea.
Drop us a line to tell us to knock it off and its done.

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".

time for a wave riding clinic. The course includes understanding local
conditions, tips and techniques with hands on instruction on and off the
water, guest appearances by pro wave riding kiteboarders and a free specially

first commercial producer of tequila in Mexico, with copper pot
stills from Spain, wood-fired adobe brickovens, and French oak
