Flying over the water, feeling the thrill of Icarus: these are the sensations you can experience thanks to « wingsurfing », a discipline offered by the « Specialised Kiteboarding« , located at Preskil Island Resort. This club, run by world-renowned kitesurfing champion Jérôme Bonieux and his two sidekicks Max and Dominique, offers water sports for the enjoyment of kitesurfing enthusiasts.

The Specialised Kiteboarding school has been in existence for four years and has been located on the beach of the Preskil Island Resort for four months, offering a wide range of water sports such as kitesurfing, wakeboarding and stand-up paddling. In addition to these traditional activities, it offers a novelty, the « wing-surf ». This discipline, which appeared three years ago, is very popular because it gives the impression of flying over water. This trendy sport, which combines several water sports disciplines, is a mixture of windsurfing, kitesurfing and foil surfing.

Thanks to this partnership with the Preskil Island Resort, the kitesurfing school offers to holidaymakers but also Mauritians and residents the possibility of initiation courses.

« I have been practising these water sports for 20 years and I have been an instructor for five years. We are the only kitesurfing school in the region. The beginner’s course takes place in the Mahebourg lagoon at Pointe d’Esny and lasts 2 hours. We are lucky to have a deep lagoon where we can practise these disciplines in complete safety, without getting hurt », explains Jérôme Bonieux, kite champion but also designer and inventor of the click bar which has revolutionised the practice of this discipline.

« The courses we offer allow you to become familiar with the equipment and the environment. During these initiations, you will learn how to handle the sail, we will explain to you the safety rules and the functioning of the machines. We offer individual lessons so that the student benefits from our full attention. We offer a high-quality service. All the equipment is fully provided by our school and we provide a boat for each student, » he adds.
