Kitesurfing and Windsurfing
Whether you are a kite surfer, windsurfer, surfer or a stand up paddler , you will find your pleasure in surfing the waves and water of Rodrigues. The immense and stunning 200km large lagoon and the regular trade winds make the southeastern coast a kite surfer’s paradise. Bakwa Lodge is on the spot!!
Rodrigues, being ideally situated in the middle of the Indian Ocean, invites a constant trade wind. The ideal time of the year for kiters is from May to October with the best months being June to September. The general conditions are cross shore winds, blowing south south/east. The lagoon is secure and completely safe. Kiters are in waist deep water, ideal for learning and also great for practicing tricks.
Both beginners and advanced surfers are welcome on this sailing ground; you can ride the wave and share your space with the traditional pirogues. The immensity of the lagoon makes it so that you are not crowded and feel completely safe while learning.
