The Kitesurf Spots
Le Morne, at the foot of Mauritius' famous landmark, the impressive Le Morne Brabant Mountain, in the southern part ?of the island, offers everything kitesurfers could wish for. The spot is well suited for all kitesurfing abilities. The constant southeast trade winds, ?which in the summer months blow all day long, make for excellent kiting. These ?winds that have travelled 4000 miles over the sea are very consistent and clean.
The Learner Lagoon
We can organise kitesurfing lessons for beginners, intermediate and advanced kiteboarders. ?For beginners we use the large lagoon with its fantastic knee-deep flat water, on the windward side of the centre. This is the safest spot for both, learning to kitesurf and for improving one's kitesurfing skills. Inside the lagoon and especially in front of ?the station, small coral clumps, shells and marine animals can be found in the water, so we recommend everybody ?to wear shoes.
The kitesurfing spot for advanced kitesurfers is situated directly in front of our centre on the main kite beach, where the wind blows consistently sideshore from the left.? Here you can blast across the lagoon on shallow water ?protected from waves by the outer reef, located about ?600m offshore.? The reef is relatively smooth and is about 1m below ?the surface, allowing you to ride down the 1-2 m ?waves without risk. If conditions are right, the kitesurf ?spot is also suitable for wave riding novices making ?their first attempts at surfing down wave.
Mauritius can be a challenging windsurfing spot. For the kids we have a big lagoon with shallow water. In the morning there are light winds which are perfect for the kids lesson.
The wind usually blows from east or southeast (sideshore from the left) and reaches a strength of 3-5 beaufort on average during summer in the southern hemisphere and about 4-6 beaufort during winter. In winter (April to October), the trade wind shows its best side. Between December and April there can be heavy rainfall.
Other than the board sports offered, diving can be arranged, trekking is available and sampling the local Creole/French cuisine is a must. There are also some really good Chinese restaurants on the island (as quite a large proportion of the population are Chinese).
Many of the evening activities revolve around sipping on a well deserved "sundowner" before indulging in some of the great local food cooked on an open barbeque underneath the stars. Needles to say, Mauritius is not a destination for those seeking a lively club scene! Prices on the island are not the cheapest, but the quality more than makes up for this.
