Lake Arenal Kiteboarding

12/6/11 to 12/12/11  Costa Rica

Lake Arenal is beautiful and is close to the Arenal Volcano. Here’s the view of the lake from Sabalito, the town I stayed in.

Here’s the view from the road at Equus, a very cool bar and restaurant.

The road to Tico Wind, the windsurfing / kiteboarding place at the lake.

The facilities at Tico Wind.

The very scary launch / landing. Depending on the direction of the wind you have to sometimes launch / land facing land and there’s not much room for error.

I had the tilapia at the Volcano Brewing Company and it was delicious, and caught in the lake. Two days later I saw one leap out of the water twice in front of me while I was kiteboarding.
