The hype around wave kite surfing is really just getting started. 2011 was the first year that the KSP – a competition world cup tour devoted completely to wave kitesurfing – with the finals being held on Sal. We want to give you a closer look at wave kitesurfing on Sal, since you can progress much faster with a few tips and tricks and kitesurfing in the waves is much safer under guidance.
Together with THE wave kitesurfer and wave world champion Mitu Monteiro we have set up a program especially for intermediate and advanced kitesurfers who want to kitesurf on waves for real.
The kitecenter of Mitu and his buddy Djo is located right at Kitebeach, the perfect spot for wavekite beginners. The center used to be a small beach hut but has been completely renovated to be a really stylish, fully equipped kite center including a nice beach bar.
We are offering one-week long kitesurf camps with Mitu Monteiro, including five days of intensive wave training and spot guiding. Mitu will personally be in charge of your progress and learning success in the waves and take you to those secret spots hidden for the “normal” kitesurfer.
Since numbers for the camp are limited (6 kitesurfers), we advise that you book early. Dates for the upcoming wave camps will be there soon.
For those of you who want to give it a try and generally feel comfortable on a twin tip, but don’t want to buy a waveboard just yet, we offer a wave basic package for all wave newcomers. Of course there are a lot more travel packages for beginners and advanced kitesurfers as well as for your non-kiting companion. Just have a look at our general Cape Verde site to find your perfect combination.
Dates and schedule of the Wave Camps
Wave camp schedule
The night before your first Wave Camp Day, you’ll meet up with Mitu and the rest of the group at a nice welcome-dinner at a beach bar. You’ll get to know Mitu and have the time and opportunity to discuss the plan for the rest of the week and chat about kitesurfing.
On the first day, you’ll head to the Kite Beach and get some of your first tips from the wave pro on how to use the board. Mitu will also check out how good you are on your board to determine which spots to take you to.
Depending on the wind, swell, your ability and personal wishes, Mitu will take you to the secret spots on the island in an all-terrain pickup. Just so you know: no one knows their way around here as well as Mitu!
Throughout the week, you’ll have a great dinner with typical local specialties and lots of fish (other alternatives also possible) in a sweet beach restaurant (drinks not included ). This is a beach BBQ. Your meal, the long day of kitesurfing and the caipis at the beach bar afterwards will tire you out and let you dream about your next kitesurfing day on the waves.
We recommend to book and arrive some days ahead of the camp to get warm and ready on the water. If you have never tried a wave board before, you should book the wave intro course. You can also plan stays before and after your wave kite Camp, we will happily organise the accommodation and everything else needed.
The camp includes one week at the KiteWorldWide Kite House, 5-day intensive wave kitesurfing training with Mitu, F-One Wave Board test, a wave board for 4 hrs per day, transportation to and from the airport, spot guiding and transportation to the wave spots on the island during the 5 days, beach barbeque, F-One Kite test option, welcome get together and briefing for the week;)
