Boa Vista the ultimate island for kite surfing

Boa Vista is different from most other kite surfing locations in the world. It is the ultimate island for kite surfing, because Boa Vista in Cape Verde offers a lot of variety. First of all the island has many white sandy beaches and a large choice of kitesurf spots. Secondly it’s not only perfect if you are a beginner, but the island is also great if you are an experienced kite surfer. The Boa Vista kite surfing conditions are almost perfect. What to think of lots of sunshine, a comfortable temperature of around 25 degrees Celcius, small and high waves and a steady 16-22 knots wind during kite season between November and May. Therefore Boa Vista is really the place to be and the reason many kite surfers are here during kite season.
