La Ventana and Los Barriles are famous for their reliable northerly winds and swell.

Sometimes those northerly winds from the North Pacific High and high pressure in the 4 corners are strong sometimes mild but always northerly.
But a few times each season those venues see weak southerly winds which may get into the foil range and are perfect for Paragliding at Rasta Beach.

This graphic tells the story behind those uncommon southerly winds.
