Ten islands makes up the Cape Verdes two hours south of the Canary Islands in the Atlantic Ocean. The main island of Sal will play host to the first event of the year once again in 2019!

Ponta Preta
Ponta Preta, Cape Verde
Contest dates
23rd February - 03rd March 2019
Prevailing winds
Cape Verde 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!
