Kitesurfing is a wind powered surface watersport using a kite and a board to move across the water.
Kitesurfing harnesses the power of the wind through a large parachute type kite to propel a rider across the water on a small surfboard or a kiteboard (similar to a wakeboard).
Although the name includes surfing, kitesurfing does not need waves, the wind is the only force needed to power you along. Flat water locations such as PAJE are favoured by riders looking to perform freestyle as the water is smooth so easier to take off and land on. With the large range of conditions to ride in, whether ‘surfing’ in the waves, going for big jumps, taking out a GPS for a speed records, learning a new freestyle trick or on a long distance adventure kitesurfing never becomes boring or repetitive.
Paje Kite Surf Spots
Paje is known as one of the best kite spots in the world. The flat water and stable wind create the perfect conditions for teaching, but the lagoon also has a lot to offer for more advanced riders. The shallow flat water is perfect to spice up your freestyle skills. The lagoon is protected by a reef with high tide this creates the perfect playground for wave riding. The waves at the reef get up to two meters.
Weather Condition in Zanzibar
Zanzibar has two windy seasons. Both of them deliver constant side onshore wind. The Kaskazi blows daily from 1/2 December until 1/2 March from northeast. In this season we have 14 to 20 knots. From 1/2 June until 1/2 October we have the Kusi. During the Kusi we have more powerful winds up to 25 knots.
Wind is your friend. Don’t be scared of it. A little bit of extra adrenaline here and there is good for the soul, and your kitesurfing
