INSTRUCTIONS SURFING

There are two kinds of surfers, the hunters and the hunted, and Spot X is what you are hunting. It’s about paddling to the wave rather than just taking waves that come to you. It means you’ll have a greater success rate when you try to catch waves and you’ll always have priority on a busy day. It takes awareness and agility in the water but it’s a skill you can practice right from the first day you paddle out the back.

          Surf & SUP Equipment ION Club Le Morne

          Soft Tech, Kai and BIC provides us with their latest surfboards. For beginners we offer boards in different sizes, with soft surface to avoid bruises. So you have the best conditions to venture into the waves.

          Safety in practicing Surf & SUP Le Morne

          Safety
          With two rescue boats we make Mauritius windsurfing safe for every level.
          Conditions can be interesting (on some days, a passage for the rescue boat is not possible), so it´s important to know your limits and especially to listen to the advice and tips from the local team, then a good time is guaranteed.

          Flexibility

          With our semi-private and private courses you are certainly the most flexible. You and the wind determine the length and starting time of your lessons. For the group courses we have to assume fixed start and end times, which everyone has to stick to.

          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.

          BEST PERIODS

          June, July, August, September, October, November

          WIND

          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.

          WAVES

          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!
          MANAWA
          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.

          HOW TO GET TO LE MORNE ?

          From the airport

          From the airport you take the coastal road westwards towards Souillac and Chemin Grenier. The drive goes along the southcoast through Souillac, bel Ombre and Baie du Cap towards le Morne. After the village of Le Morne and after passing the mountain of Le Morne you turn left. You pass the hotels Paradise, Dinarobin and The St. Regis Mauritius Resort. If you want to go to ION CLUB Prestige you have to go to The St. Regis Mauritius Resort.
