Surfing in the middle of winter, but don't want to spend hours on a plane? Bull's eye! Cape Verde is a true paradise for surfers and wave riders, as most beaches have very good wind conditions. And thanks to the mild Atlantic climate, the water is always a pleasant 22-24 degrees. So you can safely leave the thick wetsuit at home.
Very first surf lesson: Never fear, Kabungo Borges has taught a lot of people how to surf, thanks to his admirable skills and unending patience. The one-hour lesson with the national champion costs 30 EUR and is - in consideration of the weather conditions – bookable daily.

Surfing for experienced surfers
It is possible to go surfing by your own. Rent your equipment per day without a guide:

Neoprene rent 10 EUR
Pro tip: It is hardly possible to rent or repair surfboards on the island of Santiago. So, if you like to do your own thing, please bear in mind to bring your preferred surfboard, wax and sufficient repair materials with you.
Fancy a road trip around the island in search of the perfect wave? If the conditions around the hotel don't allow it or you're looking for the ultimate wave, Emanuel will show you remote spots where you can ride the perfect wave together.
