Wave Sufer riding a white water wave at Kitesurfspot Ponta Preta
Cape Verde - Ponta Preta

Ponta Preta is a gnarly but incredible wave spot, with a wave that breaks close to the rocks and with offshore wind, so it’s definitely for advanced kitesurfers only! If you are at a level to take this one on you’ll be stoked with the long pumping waves and perfect cross offshore wind direction. The waves can get really big here, and the launch isn’t exactly the easiest with a big shore break to get through, but it’s totally worth it for the kitesurfing conditions once you get out. The wave kitesurfing world tour has stopped here more than once, and it’s home to Mitu Monteiro and Airton Cozzolino, two of the best wave kitesurfers in the world. If you could name a reason they got so good, it might be having Ponta Preta on their doorstep!

Cape Verde - Santa Maria

In the heart of the expansive Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of Senegal, lies the invaluable archipelago of Cape Verde. This seemingly modest cluster of islands, however, holds immense significance, not only for its geographical allure but also as a haven for board sports enthusiasts. The ION CLUB Sal, with its two distinct centers strategically placed on the beautiful Santa Maria beach and in Ponta Leme, embodies the essence of this aquatic paradise.

Cape Verde - Ponta Sino

Ponta Sino lies at the Western end of Kite Beach in Cape Verde, offering a mid size wave generally more suited to intermediate and advanced kitesurfers. The wind here blows cross or cross off shore so be careful not to kitesurf too far out past the point and into the open ocean. It’s one of the kite spots which is popular for jumping and freestyle, due to the waves breaking over a shallow reef with flat spots in between the waves. Kitesurfers wanting to jump should watch out for wave riders and vice versa.

Cape Verde itself is well known for its kitesurfing, and there are multiple local riders competing on the kitesurfing world tour. If you’re lucky you’ll get to see them in action in the waves, and if conditions are perfect you can head to Ponta Preta to watch or partake in some serious wave riding. Santa Maria is the local town where there is generally a really good vibe with all the kitesurfers hanging out in the evening, and the local seafood is as fresh as can be!

Random Wave at Kite Beach on Boa Vista Island
Cape Verde - Praia Carlota

Escape to the tropical paradise of Boa Vista Praia Carlota, Cape Verde, where kitesurfing enthusiasts can indulge in a thrilling water sports adventure. With its stunning beaches, ideal wind conditions, and vibrant nightlife, Boa Vista is the perfect destination for those seeking an unforgettable kitesurfing getaway.

Das ist ein Kitestrand in Sal.
Cape Verde - Kite Beach Sal

Kite Beach in Sal is one of the most popular kite spots on the island, with a mix of waves and flat water, and is also one of the only places on the island where you can learn to kitesurf. It is located a short distance from the main town of Santa Maria, and due to the pretty friendly kitesurfing conditions and the fact you can choose to kite with either your surfboard or twintip, it tends to be one of the busiest spots in Sal. The island is home to multiple world champion wave kitesurfers, and kite beach is the place where a lot of people hone their skills before hitting the more aggressive wave spots around the island. The wind blows cross onshore, so it’s perfect if you aren’t super comfortable with the waves as you know you will always be blown back to the beach.

Egypt - Seahorse Bay

Seahorse Bay Kitesurfing Spot is one of those dreamy flat water areas in Egypt that have had kite schools from the very beginning, and remain popular to this day. Several of the big German companies call this their home in Egypt and for good reason, with stunning crystal clear water, wind for most of the year and perfect kitesurfing conditions from total beginners up to professional freestyle kitesurfers. The local area doesn’t offer much in the way of traditional Egyptian history, but you can fly cheap from most European countries, it’s warmer than Europe, and Kitesurfing at Seahorse Bay offers great flat water experience without the crowds that you’ll normally find at some other Kitesurf Spots in Hurghada itself like Kitesurfing in Soma Bay or Kiteboarding in Hurghada Bay.

View from Hotel to the Kitesurf Beach in Safaga
Egypt - Safaga

Safaga is a well-known flat water Kite Spot located 5 km South of Soma Bay, offering a more traditional Egyptian village with minimal tourist facilities. There are a few shops and cafes here and there, as well as a small market and a fish and vegetable market. Depending on the tide and the spot you choose to locate yourself, you’ll have large sandy beaches and sparkling turquoise waters surrounded by rugged terrain. Safaga is also a fantastic dive and snorkelling site so if the wind lets you down there’s still plenty to do

It’s not a spot for wave riders, but if you’re looking to learn or to practice kitesurfing in flat water then Safaga offers a huge area with warm water and consistent wind.

Atoll between Hamata and Berince
Egypt - Hamata

Hamata Kite Spot offers a huge flat water lagoon, crystal clear water, the best wind statistics in Egypt, and a laid back atmosphere. If you want to kitesurf and not a lot else, this could be the perfect spot for your next kiteboarding holiday. There is a large waist deep area which makes this an ideal spot for anyone learning to kitesurf, and all the local kite schools offer lessons as well as transfers to the spot as none of them are directly on the kite spot itself. 

Hamata offers a little more greenery than a lot of the other Egyptian spots, and the mangroves on the upwind end of the lagoon really add to the beauty of this isolated kitesurfing paradise. With pretty consistent wind through the year this is definitely a good kite spot to put on the list to visit.

Kiteguide about us

Our story

How it all began

  • In 2016, seeking respite from the corporate grind, I embarked on a 6-month sabbatical, unwittingly stepping into the windswept world of kitesurfing on Brazil's north coast. The consistent gusts became both a challenge and inspiration.
  • Navigating the kitesurfing landscape revealed a stark reality. Every school claimed perfection, yet their clamors were loudest when guests were most needed—typically in the off-peak seasons. This dissonance sparked the inception of Kiteguide, a vision to provide genuine insights for the kitesurfing community beyond the marketing hype.
  • Amidst the waves, wind, and the struggle to pinpoint ideal spots, collaborations unfolded. Cäsar, a seasoned marketing expert, became a crucial ally. Sharing the vision, we set out to create a portal that transcended the superficial and aided enthusiasts in finding the perfect wind.
  • The journey faced its first test with a collaboration with a German database product information system company in Schmallenberg. However, misaligned interests, focused on bus travels rather than kitesurfing, prompted a reevaluation of the partnership.
  • Undeterred, the vision persisted. Enter Caspar, an experienced kitesurfer with deep connections in the community. His insights and structuring skills added depth to our endeavor. Collaborations with programmers, like Michal from Amazon, brought automation and scalability but also unforeseen challenges. Michal's departure left us with a complex Amazon Project, a testament to the unpredictable nature of our journey.
  • The story took another turn with Julien. As the owner of a software company, he joined the project, rebuilding it from scratch to ensure cost-effectiveness and scalability. Today, Julien is an integral part of the Kiteguide team—a friend, shareholder, and passionate supporter, despite not yet venturing into kitesurfing himself.
  • Our narrative is one of perseverance, collaboration, and adaptation. Kiteguide stands as a beacon in the kitesurfing community, shaped by the winds of Brazil, the challenges faced, and the enduring spirit of those who share our passion for the wind. The journey continues, inviting more enthusiasts to join the adventure, navigate the winds, and discover the essence of Kiteguide—a story that unfolds with every gust, every collaboration, and every chapter added to our ongoing tale.
