A first on the East Coast of Mauritius, C Resorts presents C Kite Festival with Antoine Auriol at C Mauritius.
A Kitesurf and Wing foil festival from the 23rd till the 27th of June bringing together amateurs and World Champions in Mauritius for an adrenaline-pumped festival.
The weather on the East Coast of Mauritius is surely one that Kitesurfers and Wingfoilers do not want to miss! With the prevailing winds called the “Southeast trade winds”, at times Sharki, C Mauritius proves to be one of the best hotels for kitesurfing holidays among many other activities.
The East Coast counts some excellent kite spots, mainly during winter as the wind being “side / onshore” it is far less gusty along the East Coast than elsewhere. With an average of 20 to 25 knots, the kite spot which is actually the lagoon in front of C Mauritius will suit riders of all levels.
Antoine Auriol, former World Kite Champion who is also our ambassador for this first edition of C Kite Festival mentioned that he “cannot wait to meet and ride Sharki”. Sharki, the southeasterly wind which sometimes blows in the Persian Gulf. Known as Sirocco in other parts of the Mediterranean area and Leveche in Spain.
Antoine who was in Mauritius last year fell in love with the hotel concept, landscape and energy that reigns at C Mauritius.
For me it’s a mini paradise on Earth, especially as a kitesurfer and Wingfoiler. Thanks to this event, the East Coast of Mauritius is going to be known and more people will come to ride the perfect South-east wind…beside kitesurf C Mauritius is truly a place where you can reconnect with your inner child, and I am really looking forward to this.Antoine Auriol.
