If you do not have your own equipment, equipment rental and sales are also available. Purchase of equipment can be quite expensive, though. But if you have intentions of really getting into it, then buying your own equipment may be a good investment.
Learning the sport on your own might not be a good idea. There are several things that you need to know about the sport in order for you to be able to sail safely. Unfortunately, there are some things that instructional videos and kits may not provide. Also, hiring a trainer shortens the learning time, which then would give you more time to actually be on board and practice.
Kitesurfing is not the only sport that you can do on the island. You may also do surfing, snorkeling, water skiing and diving.
The downside of it all is the price. Airfare and accommodations can be quite expensive. Because it is considered as a major tourist destination, the hotels and beaches can be quite crowded most especially during the peak season. That is why it is advisable to make early reservations or bookings.
Mauritius kitesurfing is one experience that you should try. So if you have plans to go on vacation, then why don't you consider Mauritius. Surf, sea, sand, and a bunch of other attractive tourists are enough reasons to go there. As summer approaches, it's time that you save up and take that dream vacation soon.
