Kitesurfing in Mauritius
Learn to Kitesurf in Mauritius
East Coast, Mauritius
Mauritius is one of the best locations in the world to learn to kitesurf. Large expanses of uncrowded, warm, shallow water, world class instruction and the latest equipment, it is a tough act to follow when looking for somewhere to learn to kitesurf.
Repeatedly considered by many as one of the worlds premier kitesurf destinations, Mauritius is that rare beast that is not only a magnificent training ground for budding kitesurfers, but also an incredibly challenging spot for the very best in the world.
This is down to the protective barrier reef surrounding the island creating a huge turquoise lagoon ensuring the waters close to shore are calm, shallow and warm, while swells rolling in from the Southern ocean break over the very same reefs, creating some of the best waves in the world for those willing to take them on!
If you are planning to learn to kitesurf during your holiday to Mauritius, then we would always suggest staying on the south or east coast of the island - with the prevailing south easterly trade winds coming in from the Indian Ocean, the west and northern coasts tend not to pick up too much breeze, meaning there can be a longer journey to get to the best beaches. We would recommend the St Regis Mauritius Resort, Outrigger, Shanti Maurice and Constance Prince Maurice as resorts with easy access to some of the best kiting on the island.
We have partnered with a fantastic kitesurf school in Mauritius, who are based in some of the best locations on the island. Your journey as a kitesurfer will begin with a 1:1 session with an instructor, meaning you will always make the best progress during your time on the water, and will not be waiting your turn on the equipment. Each session lasts for two hours, after which we guarantee a rest will be very much needed!
Generally speaking most people will be up and riding with around 10 hours of instruction, however, if you pick it up more quickly, because your instructor will only be looking after you, the sky is the limit, and you will continue to learn at your own pace throughout your time on the water.
During the busier windy season, we would always recommend that you pre-book your lessons before you travel, ensuring that you will get a time with an instructor and allowing you to plan your holiday accordingly.
