Overview

Please note that Kitesurf NOW no longer exists on Salamansa Beach. The owners (Marc & Ola) do support local friends who offer kitesurf services, food and drinks. Their company is in one building called Creperie Chez Zoe and Kitesurf Cabo Verde. Please do not confuse them with the company which caused Kitesurf NOW not to return. This "bad" company is callled Kitesurf Salamansa and illegally put their building in exactly the same spot as where Kitesurf NOW was in process to renew their company.

nice people, small but very helpful kitestation, friendly owners :) I will definitely come back to this beautiful island. I hope that Salamansa's infrastructure will have further evolved by then. A small little guesthouse on the beach is still missing, then everything would be perfect.
