Having fun while learning the very basics up to your first water starts. These are the 3 steps to get there :

  1. Flying a kite on land: launching, landing and kite control
  2. Flying a kite in the water: body dragging, control and re-launching
  3. Getting up and riding on a board

You don’t need to be super-fit to kitesurf. And the kit is lightweight, so you don’t need lots of muscle strength either. But of course, a decent level of fitness will help you to progress faster.
Your instructor will be there to support you, coach you, and more importantly, keep you safe through the learning process.
We will provide a range of different DUOTONE KITEBOARDING  kites, boards, bars suiting the wind conditions.
Usually, you will do 2 hours/day for the 6 hours course but if there are availability and wind conditions you might be able to squeeze in 2 sessions in a day. Please make sure you contact the center prior your arrival date to check the time of your lesson. Minimum of 24 hours before booking online.

                          course organisation and safety

                          We understand that besides professional tuition, the most important thing when it comes to learning kitesurfing, is time to practise. This is why we organise all of our lessons in a way to maximise your time on the kite, without sacrifising your safety of course.

                          You won’t find large group lessons during which 4 students or more are sharing one kite at the ION CLUB. Whenever the conditions allow, our instructors will make sure you have your own kite to practise, train and make mistakes in a safe and protected environment. 

                          In order to provide you with an instant feedback especially during our advanced lesson program, our Instructors use Radio Headsets enabling them to communicate with you while riding. 

                          Flexibility

                          We understand that choosing a kitesurf lesson package from home might be difficult. Don’t worry! No matter which package you choose, if during the lesson the instructor realizes that another package would be more suitable for you, you can always change that on site. You will never have to join a lesson, which actually doesn’t suit your expectations or level.

                          After every session your instructor will give you detailed feedback and recommendation on how to continue – no matter which course you initially booked. Your success and progress is all that matters to us!

                          A word about

                          ION CLUB Sal – Santa Maria

                          In the middle of the Atlantic, 1500 km south of the Canary Islands and 450 km west of the coast of Senegal, is the small island group of Cape Verde. Appearing almost insignificant, but very valuable - and not only for us windsurfers and kitesurfers. The seamen used the favorable winds of the Cape Verdes to cross the Atlantic Ocean long before us. In the late eighties, Club Mistral recognized the potential and benefits of Cape Verde and decided to stay on the island.

                          The small ION CLUB Center in Santa Maria is centrally located on the beautiful beach of the fishing town of Santa Maria. Due to its location the center is a great meeting point to decide where to go and which spot to ride for the day.  All our Kitesurfing guests would meet in the morning at the center and than either get a 5 minute shuttle to the kite beach on the windward side of the island, or kite right in front of the center. 

                          Windsurfers will enjoy our good windsurfing conditions and bigger choice of boards and sails at our other center on the other side of Santa Maria - ION CLUB Ponta Leme - (only 15 minutes walking distance). Here at ION CLUB Santa Maria, we are only using big boards above 148 liters, and only beginners lessons are available.

For less experienced kitesurfer we recommend to kite at Kitebeach (few minutes by Taxi; can be arranged with us).

                          From Almilcar Cabral Airport to Santa Maria

                          It is virtually impossible to get lost on your way from Almilcar Cabral Airport to Santa Maria, where the ION CLUB Center is located; after all, there is only a single road on the island, running in a north/ south direction.
                          Transfer from the airport to the hotels takes about 15-25 minutes.
                          Taxis cost about €2/km.
                          A rental car is not at all necessary.

                          By Taxi

                          If you take a taxi, give Santa Maria Angulo restaurant as your destination - the price is around 20 EUR. The Center is right behind the restaurant

                          Rental Car

                          If you have a rental car, simply drive in the direction of Santa Maria in the southern part of the island (a distance of about 20 km). Turn left right after the “Enacol” gas station and follow the street all the way to the end. Then turn right and follow the road down to the beach and Angulo restaurant.
