Boavista: 2 centers and perfect conditions for all
2nd Center since december 2018
In december 2018 we opened a 2nd center on Boavista in order to offer perfect conditions for all - windsurfers,kitesurfers, surfers and stand-up-palling fans.
In addition to this we offer you kite-daytrips as well as Kite- and Windsurf-Foil lessons and rental from now on.

Our spot is at a perfect place for us. Although there's quite gusty wind close to the beach, but the center is very close to the town and the most important, there is no shorebreak at our entry point. Other spots with shorebreak are very difficult to enter and leave the water without hurting your body or breaking the gear. This makes our spot also perfect for windsurf beginners.
50-100 meters to the left there is a beautiful little wave, knee to shoulder high which is perfect for Stand-Up-Paddling or Surfing. Your level doesn't matter, even beginners will ride their first waves after a very short time. Especially in the morning with sunrise and in the evening with sunset it's just a dream and one of the highlights of the day.
The wind is blowing offshore, this is why we have perfect flatwater conditions close to the beach. When you dare to take the liowa-wave (portugese for lion) you can make some turns in a wave up to head-high. Because the sandbank is quite deep, in relation to its size this wave is not too heavy, so you don't have to worry too much when you crash in the wave. The wave is a pointbreak so if you surf next to the sandbank you can get around the wave with no problems and there is no destructive shorebreak you need to pass.
