Salamansa is the kitesurf spot at São Vicente where almost all the action happens. Salamansa
is a spacious beach with winds varying from 16-27 knots NE / NNE. In the center of the beach you will find steady wind for kitesurfing where the wind gets a little but more gusty downwind. But, because of the rocks downwind, you will find absolutely beautiful waves. Kitesurfing downwind in Salamansa is taking more risk. More upwind you will find stunning waves as well. Beautiful waves with steady brakes with makes the heartbeat of every wave surfer go faster.
In our experience the adventure kitesurfers go downwind, the beginners and freestylers stay at the center and the wave lovers disappear (for hours) upwind.
Most of the kitesurf action from our trips and kitesurf holidays are at Salamansa. We prefer to kitesurf with our holiday clients and kitesurf trippers on Salamsansa because of the location, space and possibilities. For more information about the possibilities, see our kitesurfing Salamansa page.
We make sure that you can get (if applicable) housing at te beach, meals everyday and the best instructor and surveillance options at the beach. Our experience shows that arranging this by yourself is a drama, badly organized and costly in time and especially money.
