  • Dear Kiters, on Nov 4, last Thursday, my Foil Mast was broken while parked on the beach, near La Tuna Restsurant. If anyone witnessed the scene can provide me any information as to who were involved, I would greatly appreciate it. Tterry711@yahoo.com  or 415-760-5504
  • The La Ventana farmacia has two covid tests, 2900 pesos and 950. Has anyone used either to fulfill the USA requirement to fly into the USA? - Richard rlshirey@hotmail.com
  • Looking for help transporting a small 12 lb Hawanese dog (and surfboard) to me in La Ventana. Contact Debbie 6048128369 or debbiebaldelli39@gmail.com. Thank you. will pay for gas.
  • Green jacks sometimes follow you when you are swimming or paddling. It’s fun swimming with them and observing their behavior. Today my head was out of the water and could see through the glassy clear, calm water a huge shiny thing coming at me. Suddenly I had, “flight for flight;” an instinctual scare. But when I plunged my head into the water, I broke out laughing. I saw this great school of small jacks colliding with my path, going crazy feeding, diving, darting. Here is a clip of them! I see this fun school of small Green Jacks each day on a routine snorkel swim. Today they really surprised me! This species of fish is one of the many special fish in Ventana Bay. I just love them! - William (desertplayer@hotmail.com)

Baja Night Sky - Next week, the Leonids meteor shower peaks late Tuesday evening, November 16, and early Wednesday morning (I’m posting this today since the Leonids occur before next Wednesday’s Ventana View is published). Leonids often explode, leaving long streaks in the sky. The best time to watch is after the moon sets at 4:30 am Wednesday, November 17. Look east to find the radiant where the incoming meteor stream crosses Earth’s orbit. Wherever they appear, the meteor path will trace back to this radiant. - Tom at BajaNightSky@gmail.com

MasViento Wind Forecast - (Today: Sunny. North wind 22-26 mph) One of the ASCAT satellites measured 15 knot winds over the far eastern sections of the Sea of Cortez last evening , and all of the latest model runs show solid north background flow for today. As opposed to yesterday when clouds affected the consistency of the wind, infrared satellite imagery shows nothing but sunny skies for today, so we will likely see a big thermal boost this afternoon. Surface high pressure building into the western U.S. today will become nearly stationary through the weekend and should sustain enough background north flow over BCS to fully activate our afternoon thermal each day. Models show a reinforcing shot of high pressure working into the Great Basin of the U.S. on Sunday, and this could sustain a good north flow through Tuesday. Wes (daily forecasts: MasViento).
