Good morning everyone! 🌞
The action isn't over yet, as we're going to have a supersession here at Ponta Preta. All riders can register at 11:00 AM local time, and the first possible start will be at 12:00PM. It's time to send it and show one last time sick moves in Cape Verde!

“I have no words for winning here!
It’s the best place ever that I could have won, the waves were just insane, the wind, the crowd, my family, everyone knows me here. Going on a heat with @mitumonteiro which is somebody that I admire so much since kid, is priceless. I’m absolutely stocked to finish here in the first place.”

Prevailing winds

A northeast wind averages 19 - 25 knots in winter, increasing to 30 knots in the summer months of July and August.

Water conditions

Famed as one of the world's hotspots for kitesurfing, there are good ground swells that hit this coast and wrap around the points which makes it perfect for a combo wave and strapless freestyle event with cross-onshore winds. The water temp sits around 19-24°C / 66 - 75°F all year. On the lagoons it's butter flat and and ideal for going big!

Competition history

Keahi de Aboitiz was undefeated at this spot for four years, between 2013 and 2016 in all competitions, before being unseated by the maestro, Mitu Monteiro in 2017, who re-enacted his victory here in 2007, when he became Wave World Champion. In 2018, Airton took his first ever GKA Dakhla event win and in 2019 the KSWT will return alongside the GKA Air Games for the first time!
