Le Morne is a very open spot for different level of riders : from beginners to confirmed riders... You can always get the best of it as it offers on the same spots variety of conditions. The kite lagoon is flat / choppy (depending of the tide) so it is easy to begin and to progress with kiteboarding. Confirmed freestyle riders will also be able to send their best moves and jumps. South east wind (side on shore) is predominant and makes wind more stable and strong. East wind is also often common (more on shore) in kite lagoon but more gusty cause of the wind shadow. Kitesurfers will also be delighted to ride their surf boards strapless for some freestyle sessions but will also enjoy the different level of waves of Le Morne : Anchor, Manawa, little reef, Chameau, Platin Rouge and last but not least... ONE EYE, the mytical wave of the spot.

A bit or history
Le Morne Cultural Landscape, a rugged mountain that juts into the Indian Ocean in the southwest of Mauritius was used as a shelter by runaway slaves, maroons, through the 18th and early years of the 19th centuries. Protected by the mountain’s isolated, wooded and almost inaccessible cliffs, the escaped slaves formed small settlements in the caves and on the summit of Le Morne. The oral traditions associated with the maroons, have made Le Morne a symbol of the slaves’ fight for freedom, their suffering, and their sacrifice, all of which have relevance to the countries from which the slaves came.
