Windsurf Equipment Rental at ION CLUB Ponta Leme

The bay of Santa Maria is located on the southern tip of the island Sal and the long, fine-grained sandy beach extends over more than 4 kilometers. Thanks to their position within the winter trade-wind belt, the Cape Verde islands boast perfect wind and wave conditions from November until May. The spot is unbelievably varied: in front of the center the water is a little choppy with a slight shorebreak. The team is always happy to help you carrying your material into and out of the water to ensure that you pass the shorebreak without any problems. Further out there is a nice swell for wave novices. The cross-offshore or sideshore wind from the left enables effortless upwind sailing to the various sections of the beach. 

Our Maincenter ION CLUB Ponta Leme is situated on the east coast of the bay and is about 10 minutes walk from the ION CLUB Santa Maria. At ION CLUB Ponta Leme we offer windsurfing lessons and rental, as well surfing and SUP.
