This is one of our most stunning trips! Situated on the southern tip of Mauritius, the ION Club centre at Le Morne offers quite possibly the most varied conditions of any windsurfing resort in the world. It's like having three windsurfing loactions in one spot, such is the variety! There's loads to do on and off the water, so perfect for non-windsurfing partners too!

 

There's beautiful flat water to scud over in the massive lagoon and then optional, easy and very accessible waves on 'Comfy Pillows', 'Small Reef' and for the more adventurous, Manawa. The venue is such a beautiful location, it's a truly an amazing place to sail, stay, relaxed and absorb the beautiy of Mauritius on and off the water. We seek to truly enhance your experience with our Windwise coaching system, guiding, socials and Windwise assistance.

 

Mauritius is one of our favourite Windwise destination  - everyone wants to go back. Amazing conditions, stunning back drop, luxury hotel and fabulous food, you (and your partner) will love it! Swim with dolphins, waterfall walks, mountain views, bike rides, surfing and SUPing. But best of all, gorgeous flat water Freeriding, Freewave Bump & Jump and down the line wave riding of waves to suit any level. It is one of our favourite windsurfing locations in the world - LIFE IS TOO SHORT - Do it!

We strongly suggest getting travel insurance from when you have booked your holiday. If you cannot travel for personal reasons, ill health / CV19, injury or any unforeseen reasons the booking will still stand. So we suggest getting holiday insurance, including CV19 travel cover which is now easy to get at little cost.

Who's it for? 

Our WINDWISE windsurfing clinic in Mauritius is a perfect mix of coaching, adventure and having an extra special windsurfing holiday. The course, location and how we run this trip is positioned for intermediate-advanced windsurfer looking for something unique. It's also a great place to bring non-windsurfing partners, with plenty of other activities and a beautiful beach and hotel as our base. So this course is focused towards short board intermediate and advanced sailors seeking to sail in an exciting new venue. If you can waterstart, you'll easily sail Mauritius!  If you're used to sailing a sub 140L board, you'll be fine there. If you sail a 85-115L board you'll want to stay there forever!  

 

Course & Holiday Content

With the flat shallow water lagoon and  ‘take as you please’ waves on the outside, we get the chance to cover every aspect of windsurfing. So we run through a range of flat water Freeride skills and also some Freewave & Wave skills for those who want something more exciting. In one run you can blast over flat water and then try some cross-shore jumping on tiny, small, medium and large waves, turn round and catch some easy, safe or exciting wave for some down-the-line riding. So, as with all our WINDWISE windsurfing courses and holidays we offer full professional coaching to assist you in your quest for windsurfing mastery and a great time on and off the water. In Mauritius we always cover core short board skills, plus tacks, gybing, intro-to-wave skills, safety, launching, catching waves, riding waves, jumping and optional looping for our more experienced clients. You can also expect to be put through some incredibly useful windSUPing sessions in lighter winds to enhance your technique and talent in this stunning environment. If you want to gain more experience and dip in and out of more varied conditions, join us in Mauritius.

 

Other Holiday Highlights

Where do you start. As well as the truly stunning location with amazing back drop of Le Morne we have loads going on. Welcoming socials for singles, couples or groups, sunset drink, cocktail hour, special evenings out to undiscovered restaurants and other adventures such as coastal bike rides, swimming with dolphins, mountain hikes and walking with giant tortoises and even lions! 

 

Kit & Conditions

I think you're getting the idea of the range of conditions in Mauritius. There's flat water throughout a huge shallow lagoon at low tide and then slightly choppier water at high tide. You also have optional wave experiences on the outer reefs. You can never, ever, guarantee wind AND waves. But in October your chances of wind and waves are very good, we've always had decent wind and always some waves (often lots) over the last 10 years in Oct. Plus Oct is when an ex-centre manager said he was going there on holiday..nuff said...

 

Swell/Waves 

When you get 'Ocean swells' it can range in size and power. We usually ride the smaller waves safely inside the reef and then for those who want larger waves there are some options to try out. On the occasions when we get very large swells, you can still sail in the lagoon.  

"Comfy Pillows" Windwise named this small reform break inside the lagoon. It's incredibly gentle and everyone gets to ride their first wave there! We use it as a training play ground for the more cautious sailors and as a safe place if the swell gets really meaty.

"Small Reef" is a nice break on the out skirts of the reef with varying size waves, it's good for jumping and introducing yourself to larger waves and down the line skills. There's also a channel to get out through the break without going through white water.

"Manawa" is often seen in photos of larger waves in Mauritius. It is actually quite a gentle wave and enables some of our clients to ride a wave much bigger than they would normally ride. There is a channel to escape breaking white water, so first timer wave riders can catch the shoulder safely and enjoy the ride of their life without ever having to go in or out through white water!

"One Eye" is one of the most famous waves in the world. It travels with the length and speed of a run away train, wrapping perfectly around a distant and incredibly shallow reef. This is for experts only, but we have taken clients close to the break to watch. 'Elf n Safety' won't let you sail there....

Wind: Port tack, blowing left to right cross shore

Club Mistral has all the right kit to suit the range of conditions, plus great safety cover and staff!

Boards between 75-130L

Sails 4.7-7.5m

SMALL PRINT

WINDWISE will do their best to ensure your safety and enjoyment on the water. There will be times when you're being coached individually and in a group. There will also be times when you are freesailng by yourself. Windsurfing is, potentially, a dangerous sport and you must agree to sail in a responsible manner and in the designated areas outlined to you in resort.

In the event that Simon Bornhoft is not able to make the clinic due to illness or unforseen circumstances, your WINDWISE booking and holiday are still valid and the course/holiday and adventure will still go ahead and another Windwise coach/guide will be provided for you.

***It is essential that you have thrid party windsurfing insurance!***
