Not jealous at all....it's sh*t there, water is too warm, stupid regular warm thermal winds and the sun is too bright! Shocked

Amazing spot...on our dream list of spots to visit. Big flat water area plus one of the best surf spots in the world...especially if your goofy stance (which I'm not)

I've been twice

Awesome place

Where are you going? At a guess it'll be Le Morne

Both times I've been I stayed on the east coast, much nicer IMO

If you take your kit, get a golf bag. You get 20 odd kgs that way for free. Just don't rock up at check in wearing anything surfy

Just a little simple but essential thing to add, take some booties for the coral reefs, my experience from surfing south pacific/indian ocean etc. is that they can be worth their weight but difficult to buy when on a little Island
Enjoy Very Happy

There's plenty of spots. Just google kite surf mauritus and there's a web site with all the spots listed.

Good point Ian, yes, get some reef shoes. My girlfriend got a spike in her big toe from an urchin, even wearing reef shoes. I never wore any and didn't get spiked(I was lucky).
If you're not going to wear any be careful and try not to put your feet down, not always possible I know.
None of the locals wore shoes

You'll see where the urchins are, it will be the dark spots you will see as your whizzing along.

November isn't the best time to get wind, but it's the best time to get a tan Cool

Enjoy it, it's a lovely place to visit with nice friendly locals Very Happy
