Spot
Sal Island, Cape Verde
Location
Santa Maria, Sal, Cape Verde
Wind forecast
Contest dates
17 - 25th February
Prevailing winds
Ten islands makes up the Cape Verdes two hours south of the Canary Islands in the Atlantic Ocean. The main island of Sal is where this year’s competition will run and in general it offers kitesurfing conditions for all levels with average winds of force four to five every day.
Water conditions
Find side-onshore wind and small wind waves on the windward, east side of the island. At Santa Maria on the south coast you’ll find flatter water for freestyle. In the southwestern corner of the bay there is a wave spot for experienced riders with offshore wind. However, the real deal for experts is the pure world-class wave spot - Ponta Preta - which offers a very fast wave that can get huge with cross-offshore winds. It’s special!
Competition history
Competitive kitesurfing is making a long-awaited return to Cape Verde this year!
