Kiteboarding Mauritius Island

Tips:

Climb Mt. Le Morne: Our guide Yan Maroussem took us to the top for a breathtaking view. Check out his website: http://www.trekkingilemaurice.com/

Learn to Kiteboard: Visit the Son of Kite surf school and ask for JC Galey. He's an outstanding teacher that can get anyone on the water. http://www.sonofkite.com/

Transportation: Rent a car at the airport. You'll need one to really see the island.

Grocerys: There is a supermarket in La Gaulette with everything you might need.

Must eat: Eat lunch at the Snack Cyril on the beach. It's cheap, and they have excellent chocolate crepes for dessert.

Nightlife: Nights are slow in Mauritius. After a full day on the water, we didn't have much energy to go out. Ocean Vagabond in la Gaulette wasn't a bad place for dinner and a few drinks. If you're looking for something more exciting drive 30 minutes to Flic en Flac for a wilder night.

Gear: If you're bringing your own kites, anything from 12m to 5m can work. The water is a bit chilly, so bring a wetsuit.

When: The windy season in Mauritius lasts from June to the end of October.
