La Morne

This amazing headland on the islands south west corner is the Kitethrills base through winter and is world renowned as one of the best kitesurf locations on earth.  The regular trade winds are compressed here by the local topography and the acceleration effect gives us an extra 5 knots on top of the background wind strength.  :)
There are a number of places to kite here and its a good location for all levels, from beginner to world class wave riders.  Whats really great for the Kitethrills tours are that everyone can share the beach; flat water riders and wave riders are all resting and sharing stories, experiences and motivating each other from the same launch spot.  The flat water lagoon in front of the beach has an upwind current which is great if the wind goes light.
