Surfing

THE PERFECT WAVE

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.
