The lagoon of Roches Noires is great for kitesurfing; although sometimes a bit irregular when the wind is very Southerly. Deep enough every where except near the beach at low tide (in some places.) The reefs are a bit tricky though.
You will find some information here on my website
http://www.bookmauritius-villas.com/kitesurfing-information-mauritius
Call me when you get there if you need help;

With best regards

Bernard

we are coming to Mauritius in Octobre. Do you have any idea how the conditions for kitesurfing are at Roches Noire/Riviere Du Rampart north of Poste Lafayette. It seems to be a shallow lagoon (google maps) but I did not found any information on the internet.

Thank you

christian

It depends on where you intend to kite. In Le Morne it’s always between 7 and 9 m2. In Bel Ombre it would be 8 to 10. In the North 9 to 11, in the East, 9 to 12. This is a guideline for free-riding and some waves for a 75 to 85 Kg rider.

Hope it helps

Regards

Bernard

I’m sorry if you have not received my reply to your post ; I did reply to it but can’t see it online.

Just in case, here is the essential of it.

Unfortunately, in December / January, there is simply no wind. Unless there is a storm around that can make a day of nice wind, you will get a day or two of thermal-type in the North or on the West coast (La Preneuse) but they never last. In the North it is more likely to have some days with 12 to 15 knots. On the East coast it’s most unlikely. So the Friday Attitude won’t work this time, or only for you on the beach ; it has a nice beach indeed. Bel Ombre is also out of question.

It is more likely to have wind, in Le Morne, Bel Ombre and the North up to mid or end November. On the East coast it’s rather up to end October. So, if you like the East coast, it is better to come earlier.

There are other good reasons for avoiding the Dec / Jan period.
- It is very busy and crowded with everywhere being pretty booked-up.
- It’s about twice the rates (airfare and accommodation,) as just before, about 50 % higher than during the Oct / Nov school holidays.

I hope this helps despite the late posting. Let me have your feedback then I’ll try to give you some tips.

Have a nice day,

Bernard

Myself and my partner are looking to come out to Mauritius around the dates 25th Dec 2014 until 11th Jan 2015. Where do you recommend to kite surf at that time of year? He has his own kitesurfing gear that he will bring out and is an intermediate level. I am a beginner and would like to try it but it is not a necessity as I am quite happy on the beach! I see from your comments above that the Bougainville Hotel will be reopened by that time under ‘Friday Altitude’ so we could check that out. Also heard that Bel Ombre is good?
We would like somewhere on a beach that has easy access for kitesurfing for him and beach/pool for me!
Can you help at all?
Thanks
Tess

Thanks for your question and please accept my apologies for taking so long to react. There are no rentals on the hotel premises but they collaborate with a kiteschool located in Palmar, i.e. at less than 10-minutes drive from the Bougainville or Tropical. They were meant for riders coming with their own equipment.

The Tropical should in fact be counted out now as it is suffering from erosion of its beach. Both hotels are owned by the Attitude Group. The Bougainville is now closed for renovation, due to re-open on Sept 15 under the name of Friday Attitude where it is likely that they will run an in-house kite-school / centre. I can investigate if your stay is going to be after their opening.

There are in fact 2 operators in that region from which you can rent kites but like in Le Morne, it for you to kite where they are; not take the kite to some other place.

Let me know if you need any additional information; I promise i will respond faster this time.

Bernard

I see that you recomend three hotels that are kite friendly. Can you also rent kites there or do you have to go to Le Morne?
