Info wanted about Mauritius

Postby Celine » Sat Nov 24, 2007 1:35 pm

Hi All - (especially Nico!)

I have a possible job opportunity in Mauritius based in Port Louis. I was just wondering how good Port Louis will be for kite surfing - are there places to get out evenings and weekends, or does all the good kiting involve a long drive / flight to another part of the island.

Is it kiteable all year round, or are there some really dead periods?

All info much appreciated - will help me decide whether to take this job or not!

Cheers

Nico

Hi Celine.
Once you are here getting to the spots from Port louis will not be a big problem as the island is only about 80 by 50 kms in size.
You will get all the low down about the spots here http://www.mauritiusurf.com
PM for more details if necessary
