Welcome to the exciting world of surfing on Boavista, where the ocean and its waves send us into a whirl of pure happiness, joy, and inner peace. There are few things in this world as addictive as surfing. Those of us who have been riding the waves for many years understand this irresistible attraction all too well.
Are you ready to join us on a journey in the middle of the majestic Atlantic? The best waves in the world await you here on Boavista. Even world-class surfers like Hawaiian Jamie O’Brien come here regularly. This is no coincidence, as Cape Verde is a true paradise for surfers.

At Planet Allsports Boavista we offer surfing and wave riding courses for all levels, from beginners to experienced surfers. Our “house wave” right in front of our center is the ideal place to learn to surf quickly, easily, and safely. You can already feel the pure magic of surfing as you glide over the gentle waves.
And for the more adventurous among you, we have the “Liowa wave”, named after the Portuguese word for lion. Further out, with a good swell, it offers you the opportunity to pull off spectacular turns in head-high waves. But don’t worry, thanks to the deeper sandbank, it doesn’t break too violently, so you can feel safe and free.

We look forward to getting out on the water with you and experiencing the unforgettable adventure of surfing the best waves of your life that will memorably touch your heart and soul.

    Come to our house reef on Boavista and become a cool surfer!

Information about travel, accommodation etc.

“Boavischta”, as the locals pronounce it, is definitely a vacation highlight. It is one of the 15 Cape Verde islands and is located around 500-600 kilometers off the West African coast at the height of Dakar, a good 1000 kilometers south of the Canary Islands. Boavista is one of the most breathtaking spots in the world. The vastness, the water colors, the Cape Verdean “no stress” flair and the unique nature make the island so desirable.

As the first kite, windsurf, stand-up paddle and surf school on Boavista, we set up shop here over 17 years ago, 5-10 minutes from the town center. We deliberately chose the Tortuga Beach Club with Ruth and Leo. They have been running the restaurant for many years and offer excellent Italian cuisine and the best fish dishes.


If you want to experience the ‘joie de vivre’ of the locals in the small town of Sal Rei up close AND get the most out of water sports, then we recommend that you stay in a nice apartment as close as possible to our station.

We offer two wonderful accommodations just a 3-minute walk away. You can choose between the Cala da lua Aparthotel with its charmingly furnished rooms and optional breakfast service or the lovely Ca Nicola Hotel, which is located right on the beach and includes breakfast. You can book both accommodations through us, depending on your preference.

Of course, there are a few more accommodations, all of which have their own charm and can be booked directly by you.
