Kitesurf Rodrigues Island
If you want to try something new, you can follow initiation sessions of kite surfing. You need only 15 hours of practice to become a fully autonomous kiter.
If you are an experienced kiter and are tired of the overcrowded spots, Rodrigues offers wonderful sites far from overcrowded touristy spots. Situated in preserved nature, with 200 km² of shallow lagoon, regular trade winds and its legendary hospitality, the island provides ideal conditions for the practice of this trendy sport for both beginners and experienced kiters.
There are three clubs that offer kite surfing in Rodrigues, all of them located in the south-east of the island where there is very good exposure to the prevailing winds.
Osmosis Club has opened since 1997 and is located on the border of the Anse Mourouk lagoon. It offers courses for beginners, lagoon descents by a boat, sand surfs and wave riding among others.
Nest Kite Surfing Club is also located in Anse Mourouk and has been operating since 2008. On top of kite surfing lessons, the centre also offers a choice of several spots and group outings to the small islands in the lagoon with the added possibility of organising barbecues and picnics on those islands.
Established since 2010, the Kite for Fun Club is also located in Anse Mourouk. It proposes classes with a maximum of two students per instructor. There are also tailor-made private lessons that can be organised as well as advanced courses for those who want to upgrade their performance in this sport. It is always recommended to ask local kiters a maximum of information before venturing into surfing alone.
