I would suggest looking at for your local beach and looking at the history to get an accurate idea of the wind. Then you can find charts that will tell you what size kite to use for the wind speed in your area for your height on line. You would really like Turks & Caicos. The water is shallow, warm, clear & not very many people. I manage so please let me know when you come and i’ll take care of you! :)

Comment on Kitesurfing Love Affair with Jessica Winkler by Jamie Sun, 01 May 2016 22:48:05 +0000 I fell in love with kites while at DR, Cabarete. I was intending on surfing, then saw all the kites in the air. I took six hours of lessons over three days. Not really knowing how extreme the conditions really were.
Big waves and wind made it almost too challenging; (drank a lot of water) but I did learn a quite a bit and want to buy my own set up for here on the St. Lawrence near Cornwall Ont. I’m thinking a 14 m kite. I am 200 lbs. Would that size kite be good for your area, on the lake?
I’d love to take a trip to your location soon.

Comment on Western Australia: Kitesurfing the Wild Wild West by Jemma Mon, 07 Mar 2016 15:16:00 +0000 We just camped at Sandy Cape, just north of Jurien, and were riding alongside 5 others at Sandland Island spit just south by 4WD tracks. Fairly flat and great 20 knot wind.
Wedge Island has options for a March morning easterly.
We tried a kitesurfing safari up the coast in mid/late April 2015 but wind was a bit hit and miss. Had to evacuate Shark Bay area due to insect proliferation post-cyclone (residual water breading).

Comment on Cape Verde Kitesurf Spot Guide by Fabio Wed, 02 Mar 2016 07:04:48 +0000 Hi Marc, thanks for your information! I’ll go to cape Verde mid march until end April and since the wind wan’t probably be very strong I was wondering if you might know if in San Vicente the wind is slightly stronger or if there is a century effect between the two islands?
Originally we where looking to stay in Sal but now after some research we red good things about San Vicente.
Cheers mate for any Info’s.

Comment on Mauritius East Coast Kite Spot Guide by Anders Fri, 19 Feb 2016 18:58:23 +0000 Hi Bernard
I’m borrowing this thread.
I stay in Roches Noires (North East) and just got the idea to try kite surfing, do you know any places around here that give lessons & rent gear?

Best regards Anders

Comment on Learn To Unhook Effortlessly by Angus Thu, 04 Feb 2016 14:14:42 +0000 Yeah man, nice tutorial :)

Comment on Mauritius East Coast Kite Spot Guide by Bernard Tue, 01 Dec 2015 04:59:14 +0000 Hi Pete,
The North is about the only place where you can hope for wind at this period. It can happen just because of a late anti-cyclone, some thermal working for an hour or two or a cyclone nearby. If you stay 2 weeks, you may have 1 or 2 days of wind, you will need to be at the right place at the right time. If you stay a week, then it is better to leave your kite behind and enjoy the many other possible activities. :)

Enjoy your stay,

I’ll be coming out to Mauritius and staying in the north from 19th December. From your previous comments there seems little point in considering kitesurfing due to no wind. Such a shame! So to check, are the weather patterns similar this year do you think or is it worth me putting my 10 on the airplane?
Many thanks for your advice-looking forward to coming!

Comment on Mauritius East Coast Kite Spot Guide by Bernard Sat, 14 Nov 2015 06:43:38 +0000 Hi Anne-Cecile,

Thank you for your comments on the lessons. As regards to the spot, kindly note that this is not the Poste Lafayette spot (see on our website). It is not far from where the school is but it makes all the difference. Relatively shallow waters, safe wind direction, lots of space. I however learned kitesurfing at the place you mentioned and enjoyed my lessons; it was a different school at that time but the spot, although not ideal, was OK. It is true that at that time we were counting just on ourselves to succeed.

For sure Le Morne is a prime spot but it depends upon your age and character I guess. I recommend Poste Lafayette because there are far less people and not that spirit of competition and showing-off. More importantly it is because you can rent a villa and kitesurf in front of it. It is another way of enjoying the same sport.

Hope you still enjoyed your holidays.

With best regards


Comment on Mauritius East Coast Kite Spot Guide by inMotion Kitesurfing Sat, 14 Nov 2015 04:56:31 +0000 Hi Anne-Cecile,

Thank you very much for taking the time to share your experience at Poste lafayette. I’m sorry to hear that your lessons weren’t ideal there, but I’m sure your feedback will be valuable for others considering taking lessons there. Did you get to experience a better spot or school that you would recommend beginners go to for lessons while you were in Mauritius (besides Morne)?



Comment on Mauritius East Coast Kite Spot Guide by Anne-Cecile Fri, 13 Nov 2015 19:31:52 +0000 Hi,
We are just back from our kitesurfing holiday in Mauritius and wanted to share our views on the Poste lafayette spot, just behind the Jalsa hotel, the school is called kitesurf zone. The spot is not good to launch the kite as beginners, as there is no space. The teachers always have to launch for you, so you cannot become independent. Also, if you cannot go upwind, they will have to pick you up with the boat at the bottom of the lagoon, it’s too deep to walk on your own. Some teachers are friendly, some are not, and some don’ t speak English. Eventually, you won’t get a lot of advice, as they offer no radio helmet so you are on your own. Or you share your kite with 2 other people, so get very little time of practice of your lesson (in theory 3 hours). All that for 120EUR… overall, a very outdated lesson and not possible to become independent.
Other than that, the spot is not busy and flat. In November, the wind was quite low.
At the Morne, water is choppier, it’s busier, but still plenty of space, and easier to launch (although still not 100% easy).
Hope these comments help! :-)

Comment on 5 Top Kitesurfing Destinations You Must Experience by Anton Sat, 07 Nov 2015 20:07:40 +0000 There’s a really cool service called which gives you real time wind info to the best spots you should hit this season. They even have flight search info from your local airport. That’s really cool!

Comment on 5 Top Kitesurfing Destinations You Must Experience by José Hita Fri, 06 Nov 2015 15:43:14 +0000 There is a super spot south of Spain called Tarifa. Like Maui the wind blows pretty much every day. The world Kitesurf Championships has an event there and you can enjoy the amazing Spanish food as a bonus. You have hostels and some hotels and I believe the most expensive one cost around €300 per night in August. So it’s a non expensive location. There are 3 airports nearby and the views are amazing. Sandy beaches with even dunes. It’s like a paradise :).

Comment on Kitesurfing Progression: Riding Upwind by Apple Wed, 28 Oct 2015 19:23:23 +0000 @am. Could be that your board is undersized. If you have a small board you have to really push your back foot to edge the board (even when theres lots of wind). Some people like this though as a small board means you are very nimble.

Comment on Kite Gear for Girls: The Evolution of Pink by inMotion Kitesurfing Wed, 30 Sep 2015 23:08:56 +0000 Hi Lara,

Yeah, they really are nice looking kites. I’m afraid we wouldn’t know where you can get them now, as these models are no longer current. You’ll need to buy them second hand from someone. Perhaps ask your local kite shop, search online or even try contacting Cabrinha directly.

Sorry we couldn’t be of more assistance with this.


Comment on Kite Gear for Girls: The Evolution of Pink by Lara vasconcelos Wed, 30 Sep 2015 15:03:11 +0000 Hello. I want to know where can I buy the Kite Cabrinha Siren Collection by Susi Mai 2013, the blue with Pink. I’m In Love whit it.

Comment on Mauritius East Coast Kite Spot Guide by Bernard Wed, 23 Sep 2015 11:00:54 +0000 Hi Sam,

Thanks for writing. I fully agree with your husband… :) To be honest, November could be a bit the end of the season on the East coast; the North is a better bet for the wind but there I have no villas (left) from where you could kite just by walking a few 100 metres up the beach. You could stay on the East, enjoy when possible and drive to Anse-la-Raie when the wind is lean. I’s less than 30 minutes away.

Please have a look at my website: and send me a request with your dates etc. from there
I’ll be pleased to let you know our availabilities and suggestions.

Enjoy your day


Comment on Mauritius East Coast Kite Spot Guide by sam Tue, 22 Sep 2015 11:20:54 +0000 Hi Bernard

I’m coming out to Marituis the first 2 weeks in November with my husband and we both want to Kite. Where would be best at this time ? I’ve kited at Le Morne but am worried my husband may find this too busy! Could you also send me the link to your villas if there is any availability?

Many thanks for any help you can give :)

Comment on Mauritius East Coast Kite Spot Guide by Bernard Tue, 22 Sep 2015 06:06:06 +0000 Hi Barbara,

Thanks for this message and your mail. I have sent you Alois’s number. Do not worry about forecasts, they are no longer reliable owing to the climate change I guess. There is wind and it is going to last a few days; I guess until Saturday at least.

Enjoy your stay if we don’t meet.
