Our group lessons are best suited for both absolute beginners and beginner-intermediate level surfers. During the lessons you will learn about ocean currents, types of waves, warmup techniques, how to stand up, and finally, basic turns.
Our private lessons give you one-on-one time with an instructor, where we can identify skills that need improvement. We can focus on green wave riding, paddling techniques, duck-diving, and advanced surfing manoeuvres etc. The choice is yours.

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.
We are surrounded by 3 surfing spots with different conditions for any level of surfing:
"SMALL REEF" - the Beginner spot, only 400 meters from the beach. Safety is covered by our rescue boat
ONE-EYE - THE WORLD FAMOUS ONE
One Eye is a really fast and tubby left, reserved exclusively to experts. 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. A very nice left breaking on a coral reef, but not as fast and tubby as One-eye.
