Windsurfing Cape Verde - Sao Vicente for those who like to have more wind
The surfing station is located at the windiest place of Cape Verde on the island of Sao Vicente. The mountains on the sides form a strong nozzle effect. Thus the wind blowing here with 2 Beaufort’s more than in other places like Sal or Boa vista. This strong wind combined with the flat water form ideal conditions for windsurfers. You can improve your power jibe or you can make your new personal speed record. The entrance into the water is very easy, thanks to fine sand without any stones. The entire 2 kilometre bay is a kite-free zone and thus the windsurfers can undisturbed turn their rounds. The Surf-tribe Windsurfing Rental Station provides you with the right surfboard and sails. Here we have also 3.3er sails for our strong wind. The team of the surf center offers you a very exclusive service and is every time on your disposal.
The whole winter you have perfect temperatures here. The mild Atlantic climate ensures that it is never cold and never too hot. The water temperature is always over 22 degrees Celsius. You do not need the thick neoprene suit here. The rainy season would theoretically be in September, but with only four days of rain a month, we can badly speak of a rainy season.
The island of Sao Vicente is not yet characterized by tourism. With the harbour town of Mindelo, which is also considered as a cultural city of the Cape Verde. Is always provided for ample entertainment. On this island you can still experience the real Cape Verde. The popular San Antao Island is only an hour away by boat and is served daily by ferryboats.
