Surf Zone's Kite and Wind Surf school in Sal, Cabo Verde has been in business for 19yrs. As a result,  the team are Old enough to be really experienced at what they do, and yet, still Young enough to make sure the experience is fun. This year our entire team, not just our core team, are from here and as such know the conditions here, are extremely experienced in all 3 sports (kite-wind-surf) and have a professionalism with humour, that makes you feel as if you are surfing with good friends that you trust, and they speak 5 different languages.  


Why Kite Surf and Wind Surf: Freedom & Pure Happiness

  1. No one can call you, text you, chat, nag, or email you! So you can have an enormous amount of guilt free fun.

  2. Being in the Ocean without having to wear a dry suite is fantastic, it is similar to being in the ocean naked!

  3. You will probably see turtles, flying fish and Jesus, whose statue stands in our ocean off Santa Maria Beach.

  4. The high you will get is fabulous and will not give you a hangover or lead to a divorce, this point alone makes surfing worth it!

Kite Lessons from a Boat

Surf Zone is one of the only schools to now offer kite lessons from a boat in the Bay of Santa Maria. Flat water, no traffic, and no having to walk back up-wind. These lessons are great for body dragging and board starting. It allows you long runs on flat water and to have the instructor close by at all times. Why walk when you can fly! It is luxury kiting at its best!
