Big winds, big wave potential. This poor nation off the west coast of Senegal is comprised of 9 main islands. Known for its soulful music, headed by its most famous musician, Cesaria Evora; and its colorful Portuguese culture the Cape Verdes have more recently become popular for kite and surf adventurers seeking a wilder, more remote experience than the nearby Canaries. Not quite African and not quite European, Cape Verde today is almost Brazilian in feel. With the possibility of swimming with Whalesharks, this could be a very action-packed trip.

We begin and end this amazing Adventure exploring Boa Vista, a flat arid island covered with sand dunes and date palms, roaming Whalesharks, and a LOT of waves. "With its feathery lines of dunes, stark plains and scanty oases you can't you can't help but think of Boa Vista as nothing but a chunk of the Sahara that's somehow broken off the side of Africa and floated out here." -- Lonely Planet. There is a mix of waves from expert to intermediate that will keep everyone on board in smiles.

Final Sessions and a Few Lessons

Winds in Cape Verde blow consistently and strong and swell arrives from the north just as regularly. For those looking to perfect your wave riding techniques, with some very interesting culture, sailing and adventure thrown into the mix, this is the trip.
