I’m somewhat confused with your reasoning and I think you may not be getting the complete picture by making a judgement about surfing in Cape Verde based on "magicseaweed".
- Hot with boardshort temperature waters
So if all the kiters we get in Sao Vicente are either in swimming trunks or shorties and local surfers are in shorties with a sea temp of currently 24-26C – that’s still too cold?
- Surf AND Kite
Kitesurfing in Sao Vicente can be done in one area (Salamansa) that has both a small area of flat water and waves at the point.
Surfing is done in the same bay. The local surfing guys camp out at the point virually every weekend to go surfing.
-3rd world cheap
-no need of rental vehicle once at location
Yes, possible if staying at Salamansa (although accomodation is super basic)
Your conclusion based on “magicseaweed” is not correct.
Sal, Sao Vicente, Santiago and Santo Antao are part of Africa and is surfed virtually only by locals who do not post nor report on “magicseaweed” (they don’t speak & write English and are not so web-savvy). If you talk to the guys surfing the islands, you’ll come to the conclusion that surfing is mostly practised on Santo Antao, Santiago and Sao Vicente.
I do not know what your standard is of quality surf AND kitesurfing during the same day. What I do know is that when I last shared the waves with 2 locals at the point of Salamansa and passed by (kitesurfing) giving eachother high fives, we were totally stoked and I certainly had quality time.
What is perhaps more challenging to find: to have these conditions (wind + waves) at the same spot every day.
