Belle Mare might be a bit tricky. Some parts of it more than others. If you will be at Belle Mare Plage hotel or at that end it will be better but until you become an expert you will need to body-drag about 25 to 40 meters away from the beach and try not to drift downwind. If the wind turn to the East / SE it will give you a much longer ride along the beach.
In other places it will be OK too but with shorter riding distances.

In Le Morne, where people learn it is not possible but starting upwind from the point where everyone else starts it will be easy as long as others leave you some space.

Hope it will work

Have a nice week.

First, I wish to apologize for not responding sooner but I had not seen the message alerting me of a new question. I have tested 3 of the many schools in Le Morne and they all deserve recommendation although quite different.
Club Mistral: the biggest one and international. Very professional, nothing to say. Eventually they might be too busy / less flexible but there is no fact about this.
Yoaneye: Very involved and dedicated
Sonofkite. Also a small structure, more leaned on the fun experience than pure technique. In some cases, if you go through the first stages they may take you up the lagoon in their boat to let you learn away from the many learners, which is I think a plus.

Hope my advices do not come too late
Enjoy your rides,

Bernard

I want to learn to hydrofoil if possible – I have one I can bring.
Where will be deep enough ?

Thanks

Comment on Western Australia: Kitesurfing the Wild Wild West by Martina Manninghttp://www.inmotionkitesurfing.com/2014/western-australia-kite-spot-guide#comment-229995 Fri, 19 Jun 2015 01:08:13 +0000 http://www.inmotionkitesurfing.com/?p=9390#comment-229995 Hi Fernando
There are plenty of flat water spots in WA – if you are looking for a spot near Perth, I would recommend Safety Bay. You can get a beach house near Rockingham which is an hour south of Perth. It gets pretty busy at this spot – but it is really nice!
Otherwise if you want to head North – there is flat water at Lancellin, Cervantes (Thirsty Point), or Sandy Bay – which is about 1.5 hours from Exmouth. This will be a bit less busy for sure!
Let me know if you need any other advice!
cheers
Martina

Good decision as Le Morne is really a crowded place in winter. You are however likely to get wind there.
For kitesurfing the lagoon stretching South is great but nothing to write home about if you do not explore the little sweet spots. You will see where the other kites are and if you will be staying at an Attitude hotel the kite coach will brief you.

There is a spot named Joyride which is great flat water one but far from the beach; you may need a boat or launch from Mangenie island.

Thanks for the response! We have actually decided to stay at Trou d’eau in July! Any tips for that area? And any suggestions on car rental?
Thanks!

If we are talking specifically about Le Morne, it is important to know that the mountain accelerates thet wind a lot; this is why it is a regular and popular spot (also for its waves of course.) The wind coming from South-East, hotels that are away from the spot and West-facing have no wind.

However, the air and sea temperatures are still warm enough to make enjoyable holidays. Living here I can swear that the peak of winter is far more comfortable and enjoyable that the peak of summer.

In details:
At the Riu, for sure you will get wind,
At the St. Régis: you are already off main stream. Some places of the beach will be sheltered.
At the Lux it’s sheltered,
At the Dinarobin there is wind in the hotel and a bit on the beach but OK
At the Paradis its fully-sheltered

If you rent a villa, it will depend on which one but most of them turn their back to the wind (there are no beach villas in Le Morne).

On other costs, it again depends on the orientation. On the East coast you can live in a well-sheltered villa and kite-surf nearby or further out in the lagoon.

Do not hesitate to give me a call if you need more info about kite sizes, kiting conditions etc. My Skype is bookmauritius.villas1.

With best regards

Bernard

My partner and I are wanting to go kitesurfing in Mauritius in the beginning of July. How are the wind and temperature conditions during that time? I’m afraid that it will not be warm enough for a nice tropical summer holiday destination. Also, do you suggest to stay in Le Morne or Bel Ombre?

Thanks

I just wanted to add another option lodging address situated after the Mourok Hotel and before la Belle Rodriguaise, the Bakwa Lodge. The Bakwa Lodge is comprised of 6 bungalows for 2 + 1 or 4 persons (in 2 rooms) and a villa for 8 persons , right on the beach with an impregnable view. All with half board. A small quaint, charming property to be discovered. Book in advance , rooms are few !! All the amenities and comfort of home in a well decorated eco lodge. Keep on kiting !!.

Thank you for your suggestion. As mentioned at the start of the article: “this is NOT a ranked list of the top 5 kiteboarding destinations in the world, but rather just a list of top destinations we think you should experience.”. I think claiming that any one spot should be in the top 5 is rather subjective, as you are very unlikely to have kited at every single spot in the world, and we certainly haven’t. It’s for this reason that we titled the article 5 top kiteboarding destinations, and not “The Top 5 Kiteboarding Destinations”. I hope this makes more sense now.

It will depend upon where you’ll be kiting. Where will you be staying? If there is wind in Le Morne it would be a 8 to 9m. In the North 10 to 12m. In the East 11 to 12m.
Let me know if you need any more information.
Enjoy your stay
