Brian Caserio vs. that
Darn Baja Fate!
Our long time
good friend Brian Caserio recently dropped
by to gather some footage of Graham Ezzy for
his latest windsurfing video project. On his
last day while surfing,
pilot light on his propane refrigerator
ignited some cardboard in his camper shell
and the back of his
truck was soon ablaze. Seeing the smoke, he quickly exited
the water and extinguished the fire.
camera gear was safe in the cab
of the truck and was not damaged. As
for his board & camping equipment ...well... charred
to barely usable.
Baja vet Brian took it all in
stride, chalking it all up to that Fickle
Baja Fate. Our hearts
go out and our hats are off to you Brian.
On a brighter note, look for Brian to be in
The Kiteboarder Calendar for 2007. We
caught Brian on his directional Jimmy Lewis
kite board, inside of the point, and
submitted it. Note: Brian showed his
expertise on both his sailboard & kite
board. Good job Brian & Good Luck!

Known Fun Facts
Recently while piling shredded
cabbage on my fish taco, Emerita,
our cocinera approached me with
her spatula. Using it like a profesora uses a pointer, she
asked me "Did you know that
cabbage has some unlikely close family
members? - Broccoli Cauliflower, Kale, Bak Choy, Brussels
sprouts, Savoy, and Chinese
Originally from the mustard
plant, this plant has been
cultivated since 100 AD."
Blah, bah, blah...Something was afoot...there is
no way that she didn't have some
help with this tasty tidbit.
Sure enough, a guest had put her
up to it...But shoot, I didn't
know that, did you? Let me

patterned after an 18th century
bottle found in a recently
renovated European castle, from
this basic shape, they added an
array of design elements to make
a series of collectors

in a limited quantity and will
not be repeated after the
initial run, thus ensuring
exclusivity and collectability.

years ago on the first week of
June, a special group of Kite
Surfers met in Punta San Carlos
to push the limits and redefine
the boundaries of kite
They were fortunate to a have a
solid large south swell for
their task. The original
event was so successful that a
similar group met the following
year, at the same time, to
continue the mission. They
were also given a good swell for
year a few of that core group
along with some new faces were
fortunate again to have a good
swell during that first week of
June. Armed with more
advanced kite surfboards and
kites they once again pushed the
limits and defined standards for
kite surfing. This event
has now become a yearly event
sometime in June, to catch a
south swell. To view
