- The calm waters and wide sand bar in the Riviera Nayarit’s Wind Capital are two top reasons why the area was chosen to host the world’s second Jetsurf school.
Bucerías has long been known as the best spot for kitesurfing, but now it’s also the ideal destination for Banderas Bay’s newest extreme watersport: Jetsurfing.
Juan Carlos de Urquidi, Manager of the Jalisco-Nayarit Jetsurf Club, explained the reasons why they chose the Wind Capital of the Riviera Nayarit in an interview held just a couple of weeks from the launch of this new area attraction.
“After analyzing the bay area we found that the best point to demonstrate and teach Jetsurf was by Bucerías—the waves here are calmer for a longer period of time plus there’s the sand bar, making this area less dangerous for falls,” said Juan Carlos de Urquidi.
The PR and Promotions department of the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau will bring international press and travel agents to experience this new activity, which they can them promote after the fact as an additional attraction offered by the Destination.
“The idea is to position Banderas Bay as an international hotspot to come learn to Jetsurf. The first school was started six months ago in Cancun and it was very successful; now we have the world’s second Jetsurf school here in the Riviera Nayarit,” he added.
There will be competitions held around the sport and it will be included in several of the Destination’s events. For example, the upcoming Punta Mita Beach Festival will include a Jetsurf exhibition.
The club is located on Playa Destiladeras in the Playas de Huanacaxtle neighborhood of Bucerías, Nayarit. Among their services they offer half-hour and one-hour classes, as well as 10-lesson packages; they also sell boards and accessories.
