Bizarre mountain peaks, magnificent palm-fringed beaches, colorful coral reefs, shimmering turquoise lagoons, great waves over the outer reef and wind all year round! What more could a kitesurfer ask for? Mauritius has a variety of spots and conditions to offer. Some of the best wave spots like the famous "One Eye" or "Manawa" line up are just a short drive away from perfect flat water lagoons with crystal clear water. For wave beginners "Little Reef" is the perfect place to slowly approach waves and gain your first experiences on that field. The selection and quality of the spots make Mauritius, and especially Le Morne, one of the best water sports destinations in the world.
Besides an intensive program on the water, we will also explore the beautiful island environment on land off the beaten track.

14.00 Waveriding advanced - riding bigger waves at the outer reefs like Manawa
