Just like the
movie "Groundhog Day", Punta San Carlos was stuck on
March until early July. The wind machine worked
overtime and combined with a series of West & South
swells made for a splendid time for all that visited one
of the world's best wave sailing points.
The wave sailing season has been blessed with surf in
all shapes and sizes including 2
South Swell Alertqualifiers. Truly
it has been a season of extremes. July has ushered
in an attempt to return to normalcy but has knee jerked
back into the "same ole" several times.
We're all hoping that the AWT CACTUS CUP competition
will be blessed with a good dose of the first half of
the season of extremes.
Ironically, PSC's best kept secret of empty wave
sessions in June & July still persists and those in the
know, sailed & kited in virtually empty conditions.
Where were you? In addition, there is limited
space in the Fall, SAH's most popular time. To get

Events Deliver for Guests SAH's Instructional event series
scored major marks with guests so far this year.
Matt Pritchard's Wave camp & Wyatt Miller's
Windsurfing clinic enjoyed wind & waves for
their venues. Both Matt & Wyatt will be
back this year continuing their instructional
clinics. These events are great ways to
improve your sailing.

his posse are joining us again in August
Hall is in love with PSC. This
will be his 4th season with us. Jem's unique drill sergeant style of
coaching gets results. We've never
seen such a passionate instructor grace
the Campo. Gordon Ramsey's got
nothing on ole Jembo. It's always
fun when the Brits come to town with
their zest for sailing and their "across
the pond" bar side antics. Space
is available for booking this time

receives guests from Guadalajara/
There was recently a most unusual
crew in the SAH Campo. 8
kiters from Guadalajara/Puerto
Vallarta, their pilot and a Pilatus
aircraft experienced a good south
swell with wind in early July.
On advice from SAH family member Kim
Albarran also from Guadalajara this
group all agreed that PSC measured
up. Rumor has it they will
return in the Fall - Thanks Kim,
hope to see you & Rene back again!

including Jason Polokow & Kauli Seadi.
Now the newly formed American
Windsurfing Tour has brought quality competition back to
PSC in the form of the San Carlos CACTUS CUP - July
30-August 6, 2011. PSC is one in a series of AWT events
to be held in 2011. Santa Cruz, Pistol River, Cape
Hatteras and Hookipa round out the competition schedule.
Judging for the event is managed by pro sailor Matt
Pritchard who has put together a stellar crew of judges.
