Sal kitesurfing

Sal is the best known island by kitesurfers, windsurfers and surfers. It is made famous by Josh Angulo for windsurfers and Mitu Monteiro, Airton Cozzolino and Matchu Lopes for kitesurfing. The legendary wave spot is Ponta Preta and the spot most will ride is Kite Beach (also called Shark Bay). Sal is by far the most popular of all Cape Verde Islands, busy with tourists. Kitesurfing Sal is for all kitesurf levels. Beginners can enjoy the water with relatively small waves and infrastructure of the Mitu Monteiro kite school at kite beach and advanced wave riders can rip the nicely shaped, often big waves at Ponta Preta. The popularity of Sal sometimes has a downside. During peak seasons (e.g. school holidays), Kite Beach can get crowed by the shore but still even with most busy conditions you should be able to find some space on the water by staying upwind.
The landscape of Sal is not super exiting. It is mostly flat, sandy and dry. The sand along the beach of Santa Maria is very special the long beach has white warm sand that is super soft.
Sal does not have a large indigenous population. Many Cape Verdeans living in Sal come from other islands to make a living in tourism. An authentic community atmosphere (found in most other islands) is largely absent.
Sal is pretty much set up for sun and beach tourism. Reaching Sal is relatively easy with many low cost airline flying there from many cities in Europe. It has a wide array of places to stay with many large, all-inclusive hotels. Most accommodations are in the Santa Maria area which has many bars, restaurants and an OK nightlife.
