The Kitesurf spot in Le Morne
The kitesurfing area at Le Morne in Mauritius is one of the best and most versatile, if not the most versatile area of the world. Here you will find in one spot all possible kite conditions.
The shallow water lagoon in front of the ION CLUB Center is ideal for for Beginner and Intermediate Riders, practising their Kitesurfing Basics, as well as relaxed Freeriding, or training the latest freestyle moves. The lagoon is surrounded by reef, producing a great variety of different waves. Small Reef, Platin Rouge, Manawa and Chameaux, or the famous wave spot “One-Eye”.
Out Team will be happy to help you choosing the best wave sailing spot depending on the day and your level.
A word about
ION CLUB Le Morne
Mauritius rose out of the sea from volcanic eruptions 8 million years ago. The fiery mountains slowly extinguished, leaving behind craters, craggy peaks and a tropical paradise. God must already have been a surfer, as the lava floor sank a little, allowing a coral reef to grow and almost completely encircle the island. The resulting lagoon is wonderfully smooth with a maximum depth of 4 metres. The reef itself is dependable, keeping huge fish and other beasties away.
This divine topography has been used to its fullest extent by ION CLUB, and we have been able to provide our guests with perfect conditions in this all round location for windsurfing, kitesurfing, SUP and waveriding. The starting point is the lagoon, a secure flat water play area for everybody, whether kitesurfers who prefer to romp downwind or the freestyle and freeride windsurfers who speed upwind. Further out, the reef at Little Reef or Manawa will fulfill any special advanced wishes.
June, July, August, September, October, November
The wind usually blows from east or southeast (sideshore from the left) and reaches a strength of 3-5 beaufort on average during summer in the southern hemisphere and about 4-6 beaufort during winter. In winter (April to October), the trade wind shows its best side. Between December and April there can be heavy rainfall.
The wave in front of the center breaks very nicely in big swell, especially during high tide, but isn't dangerous, as inside the lagoon, waves and currents are rather harmless. It is suitable for beginners, but there are some corals underground and the spot works only in bigger swells. Safety from the Beach with boat always ready.
"SMALL REEF" is about 400 meters from the beach, which implies either a strong paddling to go there and come back, or rather the use of one of the boats at our disposal, especially for beginners and classes overall. Safety will be guaranteed with Walkie Talkies and boat on the spot itself, close to the students.
ONE-EYE …. THE WORLD FAMOUS ONE
Right in front of hotel RIU, One Eye is a really fast and tubby left, reserved exclusively to experts. It breaks on a really shallow coral reef with a lot of sea urchins, and sometimes serious current. Works best at high tide and with light off shore south-east to northeast winds.
One eye is a symbol on the island, a wave respected by all hot local surfers, so if you want to surf there, you better be both good and tough at the peak. Great place for our guests to take pictures of the pros facing the walls of water of One eye! We don´t offer rental to One-Eye!
About 2 km out in front of the RIU Hotel Resort, Manawa is another spot for more advanced and experts surfers. By small swells elsewhere, this spot still picks up a lot more and offers even bigger waves. A very nice left breaking on a coral reef, but not as fast and tubby as One-eye, Manawa has a serious reputation too, and often requires a boat due to the strong currents you have to face to reach the wave itself.
