The Sportif kitesurfing centre in Le Morne in Mauritius is based on the beach front at the Creole All Inclusive beach resort. The centre offers kitesurfing lessons from beginner, latest North Kiteboarding and ION wetsuits, expert level and the sailing area has flat water and a variety of wave sailing locations.


Open All year.


Location
The kitesurf center is located on the beach front at the Hotel Indian Resort under shady palms, with a view out onto the main windsurfing and kitesurfing lagoon. The kite riding area is directly off the beach and is shared with windsurfers. There is also a large protected semi-shallow lagoon upwind from the main kite zone (transfer supplied). The current outside of the reef can be strong and the southeast trade wind is side shore from the left and is mostly constant all day. This is the safest spot for both learning to kitesurf and for improving one's kite-surf skills. Inside the lagoon and especially in front of the station, small coral clumps, shells and marine animals can be found in the water, so we recommend everybody to wear shoes.

The  main Kitesurf center is located in Pointe Le Morne on the  site of the Creole All Inclusive Beach Resort. The main center is equipped with a range of the North Kiteboarding boards, kites and accessories. Since the kite lagoon is upwind of the hotel there is a storage room for the equipment there as well. If you are renting equipment, you can do this at the main center where you can ride directly in front of the center.


The wind usually blows from east or southeast (side shore from the left) and reaches a strength of 3-5 beaufort on average during summer in the southern hemisphere and about 4-6 beaufort during winter. In winter (April to October), the trade wind shows its best side. Between December and April there can be heavy rainfall.

The kitesurfing spot for advanced kitesurfers is situated directly in front of the centre, where you can blast away across the lagoon on shallow water protected from waves by the outer reef, located about 600m offshore.The reef is relatively smooth and is about 1m below the surface, allowing you to ride down the 1-2m waves without risk. If conditions are right, the kitesurf spot is also suitable for wave riding novices making their first attempts at surfing down the wave.


Facilties
Accessories available include ION wetsuits, life vests and helmetss. WiFi is available at the centre.

Services
Kitesurf lessons from beginner up to expert level are available and can be booked in either groups or private lessons.

Video analysis is available but with limited playback facilities (camera/pc screen only) There are 2 rescue boats on stand by if needed and for your own safety you must observe the Kitesurf centre's on-site team's instructions, as the currents, tides and waves may be some-what dangerous, depending on the time of year and prevailing conditions. Surf supervisions and SUP boards are available (limited availability) to voucher clients at no extra charge on windless days. SUP lessons are payable.
The kite lagoon is upwind from the location of the main centre where there are 7 storage boxes available for those with their own equipment at an additional charge. N.B red safety lycra must be worn.
