Kiter

In the autumn of 2019, I decided to start to travel. At the beggining I went in the Canary and after a while flew to Cape Verde, where I learned to kite. Specifically, I chose the Sal island, which is very popular among the kiters community. Sal is home of many world-class kiters, such as Mitu Monteiro, Matchu Lopes, Airton Cozzolino, Elvis Nunes or Djo Silva. It's great to meet them on the kite spot and be able to chat with these stars.

I chose for learning 100 Feet Kite School and I definitely recommend it. Unlike many kite schools in Santa Maria, they are based directly on the kite beach, so it's not just about taking the course and learning how to kite, but also about the community that is builded around this kite school. Whether from the locals of Santa Maria na Salu, or from the kiters who arrive on the island.

The first time I was in Cape Verde, I spent almost 3 months there, which was enough to make me a independent kiter - of course still beginner. Since then, I'm returning to Cape Verde every winter, because in winter there is the certainty of a strong stable wind almost every day.

In addition to kiting by the sea, I have already tried kiting in the Czech Republic - however, with ideal conditions in Cape Verde, kiting in the Czech Republic can not be equal in any case. On the one hand, we don't have a stable wind here, enough strong wind for kiting there is only a few days a year, and especially when it's blowing, it's alse very cold, which rapidly reduces quality of the experience.
