Deze serie is vornamelijk voor de Amerikaanse markt, maar ook zeker interresant voor de reislustige Europese kiters. In de eerste aflevering, Progresso in Mexico!
Most kiteboarders that make the trek south to the sun-filled, sandy beaches of Mexico head to the usual hotspots like La Ventana or Playa del Carmen. However, the best sessions often happen off the beaten path. If you’re ready to explore a more authentic side of Mexico, you’ll love the quiet beaches, steady breeze, and local vibes in Progreso.
This hidden gem in the Yucatan is skimpy on all-inclusive resorts and wild parties, but chock-full of friendly locals, rich history, and incredible nature – both above the ground and below. It's easy to forget just how big Mexico is… But to give you a sense of the vastness of this country, we're way out east on the Yucatan peninsula, about 1,800 miles east of La Ventana and a few hours west of Cancun.
As a kiteboarder, Progreso may not have made it across your radar. We had no clue what to expect from this spot until we began planning our trip to visit Angel and the team at Yuckite - the local kiteboarding school. That said, we went and collected as much intel as we could to share with you!
Here’s everything you need to know to get you started on your trip to Progreso – starting with the kite spot details followed by some travel tips to help you make the most of your trip.
