Where your windsurfing dreams become reality

Windsurfing on waves is a dream that sits somewhere deep inside every windsurfer. Once you finally catch your first wave than you want it even more and more. You get addicted to the thrill. So what stops you from fulfilling your dream? Are you unsure about your skills? Are you afraid of the challenge? Under watchful and professional guidance you can be sure of your progression and safety. Pack your things and come chase your dreams!

Spot: 

Why is Le Morne considered as the best windsurf spot in the world? 

  • Cross-shore wind – hop on the board and plane straight from the beach
  • Flat water lagoon - learn, blast and practice the skills 

  • Little cross-shore waves on the entrance to the channel – perfect for jumping and loops 

  • Medium size waves side/side on at small reef – ideal for your first waveriding steps 

  • Medium to big size waves ,side off winds at Manawa – down the line perfection 

  • No wind? No problem. Surfing and SUP paradise is right in front of you. You can find a suitable place for your level and your practice as well as set your new goals and straight away move towards their realization.

Windsurfing skills needed:

You must be confident with your waterstarting in strong winds as well as in underpowered conditions. Be able to plane in both footsrtaps on a board max. 20l above your body weight (80kg = max. 100l board) Carve through minimum 50% of your jibes, another 50% we will add in Mauritius. Don’t worry too much about your shortboard tack, Kuba will guide you through it. Eventprice only: 600.-€, max. 10 participants/min. 4.

Boards and extras: 


1 Week Windsurf rental: 225.- €

You should reserve a wave board up to 20l above your body weight ( 70kg = max. 90l, ideal 82l if your ability allows you). Best choices are wave boards (Grip, TriWave) or less ideal but more forgiving FreeWave. We might end up using various other boards like Viper, Skate, Stubby or SUP, depending on the content of the class or conditions. Harness lines are the most essential factor of your comfort and you must have them long. Still using short lines? Soon you’ll say goodby to them. Ideal if you bring your own lines. Sizes between 30” – 36”. You can contact Kuba if you need any assistance in terms of your choice. 


Training: 

  1. Trim your gear accordingly to the conditions and set it up properly – that’s the first thing you are going to learn.  If your tool is working fine, you have much bigger chances to do the job!
  2. Comfortable sailing position and efficient up-wind ridding comes next. The essentials are: Stance - light and free, Sail - light and powerful, Board - light and maneuverable
  3. Once you fully understand those principals and can apply them in your riding, we will shift our attention to mastering your carve jibes and short board tacks. This by now should become much easier. 
  4. Wave training will be focused on understanding the safety on the line up, ways of behavior in critical situations, reading the conditions and correct positioning.
  5. Once you are safe out there than we can start thinking about bottom turning, cut backs, aerials and whatever you dream of. 
  6. Coaching will be held on the beach (discussions, simulations, video analysis and sail exercises), on the water (sailing together, demonstration, semi-individual wave coaching session with Bb talking Bluetooth communication system, filming from the water)
  7. Daily subject will vary depending on the wave and wind conditions. We might end up doing jibes, tacks or freestyle moves in the lagoon, jumps and loops in the channel, wave riding on Small Reef or Manawa, SUP or surf in case of no wind. 

Social:

Windsurfers do love talking about windsurfing. I think that it’s a quite common thing about all of us. To satisfy that need, we will explore some of the local restaurants. Get our mouths on fire with local spices, drink some delicious Rum, listen and dance to Mauritian Sega rhythms, swim with dolphins and maybe jump from the waterfall. Of course windsurfing comes first and all of those additional possibilities depend on your interest and level of fatigue after a radical day on the water. 


Plan of the day:
 

  • 09.15 – meeting on the beach, short warm up + visualization 
  • 10.00 – training on the water/beach

  • 12.00 – lunch break

  • 13.30 – training on the water 
  • 16.30 – conclusions from the day
