Mission Baja

Sarah Hauser had been waiting for an opportunity to return to Baja, so when the appropriate forecast popped up she wasted little time in organising her mission to the land of no stores or electricty, but what it lacks in convenience, it more than makes up for with its waves.

Sarah Hauser (Tabou / S2Maui): “Punta San Carlos in Baja is one of the most special places I’ve been to. It’s about an 8 hour drive from the Mexican border. Once you get there, there is no store, no water, no electricity, but tons of waves and beautiful sunsets. I had been dreaming to get over there on a good swell before the end of summer to practice my aerial game and re-charge my soul. As we entered the month of September, the COVID-19 restrictions to travel between Mexico and the US by land were nonexistent for essential travels. Essential it was! I didn’t expect this trip to take me through so much growth and to a place of total bliss, whether it’s for my windsurfing career or my internal dialogue and deep motivations.”
