Boa Vista really is a kitesurf paradise waiting for you to explore and has something for everyone.
Minimum level required
To come on this coaching holiday your kitesurfing should already be above Level 2 and you should be comfortable riding in the open sea among waves. You should be able to ride upwind, change direction and hold your ground. You should be landing small jumps and making transitions. If you can do more already this is great and we can push you upwards as far as you want to go either on a TT, surfboard tricks or waveriding.
You must also have 3rd party insurance, BKSA or equivalent. (Sportif Insurance will cover you).
Wave Road trips
As Boa Vista has some amazing wave spots you are able to bring a surfboard for kiting on. In the (unlikely for this time of year) event of a no wind day there is lots of exploring to do or you can surf or hire a SUP. On the days we travel to other spots there will be a small charge for the 4x4, however you can choose to stay and kite outside the Hotel if you wish. All equipment can be rented and pre-booked in advance of arrival.
