David Ambrose kiteboarding in La Ventana in 1998.

Here’s a scan of an old film shot of David Ambrose kiteboarding in 1998 in La Ventana, BCS, Mexico. This is really dates him as a pioneer in kiteboarding. Note the gear: 2 line Wipika Classic 5.0, and a Timpone tow in surf board! There are no other kiters out because there were no others there at the time. This is back when Baja Joe’s was a windsurfing resort.
