About the Kitesurfing Courses in Rodrigues

 

Kite Lesson

If you want to try something new and have a “taste” of windsurfing, you can follow initiation sessions of kitesurfing!

Designed personally by the professional instructor, the 2 hours beginners’ course is usually done with 2 trainees at a time. If you wish to have longer kite lessons with your favourite person, a 6-hour or 12-hour session will be the top pick for you.

For your convenience, kite surfing is offered for a normal 2 hours lesson or in case you would like, the team can also arrange a private individual lesson for you (2 hours one-on-one).

During the Kite Lesson, you will learn about kite control and body dragging and have your first water-start. The spots are carefully chosen by the instructors with low dept-water where it will be easier to practise and learn the basic controls, as well as where you can stand up.

 

Downwind sessions

Rodrigues has everything from flat-water/long downwind runs, reforming waves inside the reef to more powerful waves pushing into a range of passes. Daily downwind, accompanied by the boat, guarantees navigation primarily downwind with a focus on safety and access to the best spots.

The Downwind sessions will introduce you to the world of windsurfing. Here beginners can practise what they have learned on the first part of their course. You will be kiting downwind to Ile aux Chats or Ile Catherine accompanied by a safety boat and instructors. Local dishes and drinks are available for a surcharge.

Downwind sessions act as an intermediate course for the adventurous that can get their kites up and are looking for challenges. The Downwind sessions will give you the necessary skills, and more confidence to enjoy the kite surfing individually in the future.

 

About Kitesurf in Rodrigues

Rodrigues is a world class kite spot, a huge 200km2 playground of crystal clear water, gloriously hidden in the middle of the Indian Ocean - a treasure to discover.

The kitesurf centre is situated in a coastal village in the south east of Rodrigues Island and where you will get to discover the kitesurf in one of the world’s best places for kitesurfing.

Rodrigues, benefiting from the regular trade winds, a vast and stunning lagoon interspersed with islets and a barrier reef generating tubular waves; is a paradise set up for kite surfers. Water being shallow in almost the whole lagoon will allow you to progress quickly in complete safety.

About the professional team of instructors:

The team of kitesurfing professionals has acquired a lot of experience through the years of kite boarding in Rodrigues Island. The instructors all know the best places according to weather conditions to go for kite surfing and the lagoon holds no secrets for them.

The instructors choose each spot specifically which are particularly adapted to your physical ability and aims. The personal touch and the dedicated instructions from the instructors will make your holiday in Rodrigues, an unforgettable experience with adventures to remember!
