+ New, professional kite station of Mitu Monteiro at Kite Beach
+ Learn to (wave-)kite surf from the world champion
+ Daily kite shuttle as well as side program inclusive
+ Season from November to March
+ Kitesurfing with Mitu – exclusively at KiteWorldWide

Just a few weeks after receiving an e-mail from Mitu Monteiro himself we decided to go to the island of endless kitesurfing opportunities.

Great weather all year long and wind from December to May is a good start. The kitesurf spots on Sal have something for everyone: the Kite Beach with side-onshore wind and small wind waves. Santa Maria Beach with fairly well conditions for beginners – though not completely perfect, due to water depth – and freestylers. For the more adventurous, there are world-class wave spots (most of all, the waves at Ponta Preta as you may know from the tons of videos circulating around).

There is nearly no better place to learn wave kiting than Cape Verde. That´s why we’ve put together a wide range of courses matching everyone’s needs and level.

We have also arranged an array of other activities for you to meet other kiters and get a feel for real life in Cape Verde. You´ll go to a rockin´beach bar one night and an awesome beach barbeque another.

Beautiful accommodations bring the whole package together and there is something for everyone. Economic and sporting equipment-friendly flights from everywhere in Germany. In just six hours, you´ll be at the very heart of the world of wave kitesurfing

Kitesurfing Sal

Kitesurf Spots

If you know where to go, you’ll discover an astounding array of different kitesurfing spots.

There are spots with side-onshore wind and small wind waves for intermediate kiters on the windward eastern side of the island. This is also where you’ll find the so-called Kite Beach and the new and stylish kite school of Mitu and Djo.

The spot Santa Maria in the south is a great, nearly perfect, beginner cove with flat water, so even freestyle kiters get their money’s worth. At the western part of Santa Maria is where you find Mitu and Djo’s professional kitesurfing school. This is also the only place in the bay of Santa Maria where you can kitesurf, as the wind comes in side-shore to side-onshore.

At the western corner of the bay, there is also an excellent wave spot. This is only recommended for proper kitesurfers, as the wind blows offshore. Those who doesn’t feel fit enough for the waves in Ponta Preta at the western part of the island, should still check out this spot to check out the pros ripping the waves.

KiteWorldWide kitesurf holiday Package for Sal

Just like in many other KiteWorldWide Destinations we offer you the complete “no worry” packages for your kitesurfing journey to Sal.

- 1 week at the kitesurf apartment in a double room 

- Kite service and gear rental (kite, board, bar) as booked

- Transportation to and from the airport

- Daily transport to the spot

- Barbeque dinner (drinks not included) & get together

- KiteWorldWide guide on site



The kitecenter of Mitu and his friend Djo is located right on the Kitebeach. It is the perfect spot for beginners and their kiteschool is the only one at this well known part of the kitebeach. There is even a nice beach bar at the center to enoy the perfect sundowner right at the spot.

Course / Gear

Kitesurf Courses

All the collegues of Mitu & Djos’ kite school are happy to welcome you at their spot. All teachers are licensed and they teach in small groups to ensure a fast progress of your skills.

Kitesurf Gear

The kitecenter provides you with the latest gear of F-One.

Beginner Kite Course

Along with the options for intermediate and advanced kiters, beginners can also take advantage of the conditions on Sal. Depending on the wind, beginner kite courses are offered at Santa Maria or the Kite Beach (transportation on course days is included). On the western side of Santa Maria, the wind blows onshore and, as opposed to other areas, quite constantly. This is where Mitu & Djo’s kitesurf school is located and beginner courses are held. In January 2013 the kitecenter was completely renewed and replaced an old improvised beach shag.

To guarantee progress right from the very beginning, we offer 12 hour (four to five days) kite courses.

The evening program (beach BBQ and get together) is, of course, also included.

Intermediate Kite Course

For those of you who have had a kite course, but don’t feel comfortable just yet, there is a six hour refresh course.

Just like the beginner course, this course is offered in Santa Maria or at the Kite Beach depending on weather conditions (transportation on course days incl.).

Advanced Kite Course

For all advanced kiters we offer a two hours course to reach your individual goals and the kite gear for the duration of the course.

Wave Kite Course

There is no end in sight for the wave kitesurfing hype. If you’re just curious and already feel comfortable on a twin tip, but don’t want to buy a wave board just yet, we have a great  course for you.

You’ll receive a two hour-long wave kitesurf introduction which will provide you with the most important tips to make your switch as smooth as possible. Of course, you will also have the choice to surf with straps or strapless. We recommend going strapless to get the “true” wave feeling.


You will of course have the option to rent your kite gear on Sal. All equipment is F-One from the current season. You’ll also have the opportunity to try out twin tips and wave boards. Please note that you must be able to kite upwind to rent equipment.

Extra Service

Wave Clinics with Mitu Monteiro

For all the advanced and pro kiters who wants to spend some more times in the waves we introduce the new the Wave Clinics with spot guiding and training with Mitu Monteiro in person.

Accomodation & prices on Sal

On Cape Verde we offer you the in 2011 finished KiteWorldWide apartments or the brand new Beach Club Sal in combination with different kite services.

If you decide to travel with us, you are not only booking flight and accommodation, and then left on your own afterwards. The package always includes the transportation to one of the different beaches (depending on the conditions), as well as a barbeque and a get together at the beach bar. In addition, the transportation from and to the airport, which will be carried through by Mitu`s staff – like this you will get the current kite information first hand already on your way to the hotel.

Now you can just go ahead and choose the right package for you, depending on your kitesurfing level and your expectations.

KiteWorldWide Apartments Kap Verden/ Sal/ Santa Maria

The KiteWorldWide apartments are located centrally and at the same time only a stone throw away from the beautiful sandy beach of Santa Maria. The village center with its numerous bars, restaurants and shops are within a walking distance.

The apartments are located in a small, nice housing complex with a pool, garden and a few shops. All the apartments have a kitchenette with fridge, cooker and oven. Of course you will have a balcony and a fully equipped bathroom.

Bedlinen, towels and final cleaning are included in the price as well as the costs for water and electricity.

Depending on the size of your travel group, you will get an apartment with one (for two persons) or two (for more than two persons) separate sleeping rooms.

Beach Club Sal

A long period of waiting ends with the opening of this project. An accommodation right in the centre of Santa Maria directly on the beach with a pool and a relaxed beach bar. Made by kitersurfers for kitesurfers.

The Pousada, which was completed in January 2012, hosts only five rooms in addition to an integrated beach bar, occasionally with live music or football matches causing some noise in the evenings.

The rooms are fashionable and rustic decorated, and you might get the feeling of being on a sailboat because of the use of natural wood all over. From the rooftop terrace you have a spectacular view over the whole beach of Santa Maria.

An extensive breakfast buffet with tea, coffee, bread and rolls, eggs, omellete, bacon, yoghurt and fruits is already included in your stay.

Of course you won’t miss anything during your stay at the Beach Club Sal:

All rooms are equipped with an own marble flagged bathroom with warm water shower/WC, TV, ventilator, fridge, air condition (additional charge) and comfortable double beds.

The rooms on the first floor and one of the rooms on the ground floor impress with their clear view to the beach and a terrace. One of the rooms on the ground floor is located in the backend of the pousada and has no ocean view ( therefore a bit cheaper). In one of the rooms up to four persons can lodge, in the two other rooms up to three persons and in the last one up to two persons.
