All in one … waves, flatwater, slalom and freestyle conditions

Boavista is one of our first spots we developed, but only within the last few years it became more and more famous. It is obviously THE winter destination for all windsurfers, kitesurfers and surfers who search for the ultimate all round spot with flat water and waves. A relativly short flight time and only 2 hours time difference are only two rational arguments.

Boavista is one of the nine inhabited islands of the Cape Verde and located at the height of Dakar/Africa in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean (about 1000 km south of the Canary Islands). 

The Passat wind makes its journey down from the Canarian Island to the Cape Verde Islands in October and stays until end of May. So perfect for windsurfing, kitesurfing and surfing during the winter time when other spots are rare around the globe.

Boavista is great for all kind of levels of surfers, windsurfers, sup-riders and kitesurfers, doesn´t matter if you are beginner or expert.

Next to the various watersport conditions, Boavista offers still its original flair. You will get in touch with the locals and feel the lifestyle and the spirit of the island just when you´re landing on this pearl in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.

Location    

Our center is located about 5-10 minutes from Sal Rei town in the bay of Sal Rei. The place is called Tortuga Beach Club with a Italian Restaurant/Bar as well as shadow places and sunbeds. It´s is the closest watersport center to the city hotels like Hotel Estoril, Ca´Nicola, Guesthouse Orchidea and Luca Kalema (2-7 minutes walk). 

From this center you can start straight with your windsurfing, SUP- or surfsession. 

       
Spot Guide Boavista     The wind blows side offshore from the right without shore break as the beach in front of the center is protected by the island of Sal Rei. Due to the close location to the town, the wind is right in front of the center pretty light and gusty, further out it gets stronger and more constant. From the center you can reach all spots around the bay, with the wave on the right next to the harbour (Funana) which can reach 3-4 meters. 200 meter downwind from the center you will find the second wavespot in front of the Turtle Bay. Between both wavespots the water is flat to choppy and next to a little sandbank at the Sal Rei Island you will find super flat water and constant wind, perfect to increase your jibing skills and to improve your freestyle moves.

A rescue boat secures the safety on the spot and offers a free shuttle service for windsurfers and kitesurfers back to the center, to save you going all the way back upwind. Kitesurfers can also use the shuttle to launch their kites in the near by Turtle Bay which is better for kitesurfing.
