Kitesurfing on Zanzibar
This exclusive kitesurf spot is located directly in front of our lodge at the east coast of Zanzibar in Jambiani. From June to September and from December until March this spot provides perfect conditions for beginners, advanced riders and freestylers.
Here, a 2 km long sandbank forms a large shallow water lagoon, a perfect place for our lessons and trainings. We use equipment from CORE Kiteboarding and ION gear. The VDWS licensed instructors and our partner school, KiteWorldWide Center Zanzibar / Jambiani speaks English German and French.
Only 5 km north of your “homespot” you will find the popular Spot: Pajé. The Water is flat and shallow. During the summer advanced kiters are able to do a downwinder to Pajé.
The winter kitesurf season lasts from December till March. During the summer you can kitesurf from June until October. The wind is always sideshore and during the kitesurf seasons really reliable.
This spot is strongly regulated by tides, but it is also possible to kitesurf under low tide conditions after a short walk on the beach. During high tide launching the kite can be more difficult, that’s why we recommend kiting during high tide only for advanced kiters.
Because of small solitary corals it’s recommended to wear neoprene surf shoes.
