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!

Competition history

The GKA Kite-Surf World Tour visited Cape Verde for the first time in 2018 where the season kicked off!
