Kitesurfing in Cape Verde


The islands Sal, Boa Vista and São Vicente have one of the world’s best Kite environments. 


Being in the North East tradewinds means that winds are fairly constant in both direction and force, day upon day.

Some of the airlines are more leniant towards excess equipment than others. 


For beginners, there are more sheltered locations with tuition in Santa Maria – Sal island and in Salamansa – São Vicente. For those learning, the summer months are easier when the winds are less and the seas calmer.

In Sal there are many different beaches with different orientations, and some of the better beaches have on-shore wind, or enable you to reach across the bay. If you want off-shore wind, you can find that as well.
