Kitesurfing is a popular sport on the Islands and Cape Verde is the ultimate paradise for such enthusiasts.
Kite Surf Experience is Cabo Verde’s largest Kite Surf school on the island. We have two locations on the island of sal and a team of 6 instructors, teaching in 6 different languages. We specialize in teaching all levels of Kite surfing from complete beginners to advanced.
Our first is located in the Bay of Santa Maria. This Bay is home to 3kms of pure sandy beach and rock/reef free waters. It is perfect for long safe wind and kite surf runs. The water temperature ranges from 21-29c, and the wind is slightly off-shore at the beginning of the bay and a slightly on-shore at the end of the bay. It is a surfing haven!
Sal continues to be rated as one of the World’s top class surfing destinations, as it has been gifted with trade winds from November to June and a tropical climate all year around.
The Santa Maria school is the largest Kite Surfing school on the island. All the instructors as well as the owners have an extensive background in teaching kite surfing. The entire team lives on the island all year around, and therefore have strong knowledge of the kiting enviroment across the island.
The other school in Sal, is located on the west coast 500meters from the world famous wave spot Punta Preta. It is the only school on this coast. The bay and surrounding area is excellent for intermediate to advanced kite surfers. The wind here is often the strongest of all the school spots on the island, with the direction being more side-off.
Sal remains a hidden jewels in the kite surfing and wind surfing world. Only recently have people started to discover its multiple locations which offer not only excellent conditions for those wanting to learn the sport, but also challanging conditions for those wanting something new.
