Mauritius Winter Escape

Mauritius is well known as a world-class wave destination, but the lesser known Point D'Esny, offers epic flat water and perfect foiling in a safe and beautiful lagoon

From Perth to Mauritius

At Action Sports WA we love the thought of the endless summer, and while Foilboards, Foil kites and other light wind gear can extend the season for Perth kiteboarders, it does get the point, sometimes usually in June, when even the most optimistic kiter starts to look to warmer and windier climes.  

Action Sports WA feels the cold as much as anyone and the best way to cancel the winter doldrums and cold is the form of mid-winter escape. While some of our Asian neighbors can provide a break from the rain, they usually do not come with wind attached!

With direct 8 hour flight from Perth, Mauritius is the perfect antidote to those winter blues. Firstly Mauritius is windy, secondly, it has so much variety that whatever your level or preference for conditions this island in the Indian Ocean will tick all your boxes.

You can choose the type of holiday you want and at a budget to suit your pocket or needs. Our resident kite traveller Darren, has explored most of Mauritius and knows the best locations to stay and kite.
