Comment on How Water Pollution Killed Two Kiteboarding Schools by Jessica Winkler Fri, 31 Oct 2014 01:17:23 +0000 Hello Alexey,

There is nothing wrong at all with the water quality in the ocean in Nica its just Lake Nicaragua you need to look into. Since I was there in 2010 i’ve heard they are doing water improvement projects in the area so lets keep our fingers crossed they are improving the overall situation. Another great kite spot is just a short drive south from SJDJ in Bahia Salinas in Costa Rica.

Comment on How Water Pollution Killed Two Kiteboarding Schools by Alexey Plastun Wed, 29 Oct 2014 10:34:04 +0000 Jessica, Thank you for a very interesting and thoughtful article. Every time we go somewhere I choose the spot with the thought in mind on where the sewage goes :) What do you think of the water quality San Juan del Sur? My girlfriend and I are planning to go there for kiteboarding.

Comment on Ponta Do Ouro Weather Forecast by inMotion Kitesurfing Sun, 05 Oct 2014 07:37:49 +0000 Hey Basil,

Great to hear from you mate! You’re going to love Ponta do Ouro (and Ponta Malongane). Try and get a downwinder in between the two…

We were up there again in August and it was another epic trip!

Wishing you perfect winds, and we look forward to hearing all about it.

Comment on Ponta Do Ouro Weather Forecast by Basil Sun, 05 Oct 2014 05:38:45 +0000 Going there is coming Thursday for the first time.
I’ve heard so much about it, now it is time to make the dream a reality.
A good mix of moderate S & N winds are forecast during our 5 day stay which is perfect. That way I’ll get to experience the difference options on offer. I will kite, SUP and windsurf depending on the conditions.
I’ll let you know how it was when I return.

Have you seen our article on the East Coast?

Comment on 5 Top Kitesurfing Destinations You Must Experience by Tris Mon, 11 Aug 2014 16:22:31 +0000 Why not Mauritius island? It is one huge place with many nice spots for each kiting level :)

Comment on Mauritius East Coast Kite Spot Guide by Bernard Wed, 06 Aug 2014 13:20:53 +0000 Hi Christian,

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
Call me when you get there if you need help;

With best regards


Comment on Mauritius East Coast Kite Spot Guide by christian Wed, 06 Aug 2014 08:38:09 +0000 Hi 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


Comment on Mauritius East Coast Kite Spot Guide by Bernard Tue, 05 Aug 2014 05:44:22 +0000 Hi Pierre,

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



Comment on Mauritius East Coast Kite Spot Guide by Bernard Tue, 05 Aug 2014 05:43:46 +0000 Hi Tess,

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,
