Mauritius soft racks available?

Can anyone in Mauritius tell me if the local surf/kitesurf shops sell softracks for putting a board on my hire car roof? And a general price? Otherwise i can buy in UK and bring it in the suitcase.

Re: Going to Mauritius in September - info please

Is there a 1-2-1 supervision service where you can pay for an experienced local to kite out with you? I'm going next year and want to tackle the waves.

Re: pay to kite a spot in uk

The water quality at most UK beaches is exceptional and highly regulated. Ronnie is completely wrong. Permits are increasingly prevalent and personally i find them annoying.
