+ Most reliable spot for winter, only 6 flying hours away
+ 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 other activities included 
+ Season runs 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 and 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).

You’ll won’t find the best conditions for beginners, but 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. On one evening a week you’ll have a great beach BBQ or a community dinner in one of the typical cape verde beach restaurants.

Beautiful accommodation options bring the whole package together and there is something for everyone. Economic and sporting equipment-friendly flights. 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 experienced kitesurfers, as the wind blows offshore. Those who don’t want to tackle the waves in Ponta Preta at the western part of the island, should still come and check out this spot and watch the pros ripping it out in the waves.
