BCSPORTSMX A.C. (aka Baja Sports Mexico)
BCSPORTSMX A.C. (commonly known as Baja Sports Mexico) is a subsidiary of Baja Sports, Inc. a U.S. non-profit 501 c3 that is the owner of Lord of the Wind.
The Rotary Club of East Cape uses profits from Lord of the Wind to help fund their various community projects. (See Rotary)
The goal of Baja Sports Mexico is to make the Lord of the Wind a world class kiting event. LOW has continuously become a better and better event with the help of Rotary and all the many volunteers. For the first time ever, the 2016 Lord of the Wind was designated the IKA (International Kiteboarding Association) Kite Foil North American Championship. Currently the Board of Directors of Baja Sports Mexico (Jack Lentz, Judy Hart, Ian Gibson, Ken Phillips, and Jim Petrovic) are beginning the work for the 2017 Lord of the Wind Event January 18-22,2017.
Also, Baja Sports Mexico was formed to assist athletes and high school students interested in kiting, competitive kiting and becoming a kiteboard instructor. Baja Sports Mexico will provide equipment that the students can check-out to continue kiting after they have received instructions from Exotikite Kiteboarding School. The equipment trailer will have kites, boards, harnesses and wet-suits for their use. Much of the equipment has been donated to Baja Sports Mexico by manufacturers and local kiters.
One of the many goals of Baja Sports Mexico is to have the students compete in Lord of the Wind and eventually be able to receive their IKO certification to become instructors and/or work in the kiteboarding industry.
