5 awesome kitesurfing spots in September
1. In September, let´s make a kite cruise to the Red Sea!
The Red Sea is already famous for the unrivalled conditions it offers for kitesurfing along much of its coastline. The Red Sea Kite Cruise is an experience that goes beyond. It is not only the best way to enjoy the most spectacular sailing conditions, it is also to spend a week on a boat looking for the spots and enjoying an experience as unique as it is unforgettable.
The ship departs on Saturday afternoon and returns the following Saturday so the trip has to be at least Saturday to Saturday. The trip can be extended by staying in hotels to continue sailing or with extensions to Cairo, Luxor and other points of cultural interest.
It can be booked by places or even the entire boat if it is a large enough group.
2. In September, let´s discover Mauritius island
September is one of the best months to kitesurf in Mauritius. The winds are then strong and the waves can be powerful, especially on the side of Le Morne which experiences nearly 300 windy days per year.
If you are a beginner and want to take a trip to Mauritius to get started, know that the trade winds are present almost all year round and that you can therefore leave at any time, avoiding the season. cyclones from December to March.
The most famous kitesurfing spot in Mauritius is Le Morne. It is also the place where the wind blows best in Mauritius, due to the mountain of Le Morne which creates a venturi effect. So this is where you will have the most wind.
Open your eyes, many champions are training here! It’s an amazing place for wave lovers. The best known is “One Eye”, a fast and very committed reef wave: no room for mistakes!
But there are also other waves that are much more accessible: “Manawa” and its huge and slow water hills, “Little Reef” to discover the sensations of the waves and gain ease in strapless.
You can also learn kitesurfing in Mauritius, in one of the many schools in the lagoon: but honestly, it’s a bit like the factory! If you can, prefer the “Son of Kite” school which takes the students by boat to a somewhat quieter location. JC, the manager, is a serious and talented instructor. You will thus have a good progression.
What level to practice kitesurfing in Mauritius?
