Surf Zone Sal, Cape Verde islands

by Sheena
(Sal, Cape Verde)

Sal, Cape Verde is still one of the most well kept secrets on the kiting map. It is gifted with trade winds that blow from November until the end of May.

The water temp is avg 21, so most of the time only a shortie is required. All the kitesurfing is deep water here as it is in the Atlantic Ocean.

Sal is truly incredible in that it offers 4 very different kite locations all within a 15-20min range. The conditions at these locations vary from off-shore to side off to on-shore. There is flat water, there are beginner waves and then there are 4 to 6 meter high waves. There is something for everyone. It is warm all year around.

The village of Santa Maria, around which the kite spots are located, is a friendly village with restaurants and bars.

Sal is also gifted with one of the most beautiful white sandy beach in the world! For more info see or email us at
