Dear friends of the fresh wind,

…do you also love the sound of the sea, the sun on your skin and the sand between your toes? Are you looking for paradise? Then you’ve come to the right place!

We are Gilson, Mario, Marlin and Leandro – living in Santa Maria on the beautiful Cape Verdean island of Sal off the coast of West Africa.

We love the sea, the sun and the sand on our skin – but we love kittening even more. Whether, we learned to walk or to kitten first – you will be able to guess: We are still discussing the question today – with a lot of passion!

With a lot of passion we love to teach you to kite. No matter if you are an absolute beginner or an advanced rider who would like to switch to a surfboard or would like to learn a few tricks for jumping.

Besides a lot of fun, we offer you our years of experience on the beach of Ponta Preta – in Santa Maria. Santa Maria is the tourist centre of the island and offers cafés and restaurants as well as walks along the promenade. And for the night owls among you: we can also party! The beautiful sandy beach of Ponta Preta is only 5 km away. Perfect kite conditions await you on this side of the island: Offshore wind.

Your IKS-Team 
Mari, Marlin, Leandro & Gilson
