We just came back from Sal, we were there for 1 week, and we want to share with you some pictures of this great kitesurfing place.
Although this is not the best period for wind out there, we had 14-18 kt everyday, wich is quite good for 12 mt kites.
Waves were there in punta preta for 2 days(1.5mt),but we did not take pictures cause we were on the other side of the place in Kitebeach, were the wind is more constant and onshore
The water was at the same temperature as the air around 28/29 degrees-unbelieveble.
There are more than 200 photos in our link, most of them from the landscape and surroundings of the city of Santa Maria. If you want more action pics you can check our Dec 2006 folder were we had some nice waveriding at punta Leme
We are planning another trip for the beginning of Dec, were we will go with beginers too, and give them the lessons there, if you are interested just contact us.
Overal Sal is a place were you still have this magical island feeling, the hospitality of the cape verde people, everything is close together, you can move from one spot to the orther in minutes, just call a pick up truck(5/7 euros), you have waves and flat water to choose from, all kinds of lodging(very important for the ladys), a world's top class wave spot-PUNTA PRETA (if you DARE!), just 4 hours from the mainland.
Also you can check our trip in December 2006, lots of wave action in Punta Leme:
Best Regards and Good Winds
