SANTA VERONICA, COLoMBIA

WAVE AND TWINTIP PROGRESSION CAMP

Progression Camp for Strapless and Twintip
FEB 11th to 18th
and/or
FEB 18th to 25th

Santa Veronica is a small kite paradise in Colombia. Ideal for perfecting your techniques in twintip and waves. 80 km from Cartagena, it is an authentic and preserved spot, still sheltered from mass tourism and which offers a steady wind all winter long. The spot forms a large bay with a sandy bottom and a safe side-on wind. We find:

  • Areas of waves from 0.50m to 2m high depending on the conditions. Waves that unroll cleanly, perfect for beginners.

  • Freeride areas

  • A flat area

  • Possibility to do downwinds

The village of Santa Veronica is a small village typical of this part of Colombia. It is lined with palm trees and small local restaurants. It's sunny and warm every day! The most used sail sizes are 7m and 9m.

The Villa is located 2 minutes walk from the kite spot.

  • Trip open to all kiters who go upwind 100%. No need to have done strapless or wave before because there is an easy freeride spot.
