Varatraza Wind Riders

Kitesurf & windsurf



The Varatraza is a trade wind from the Indian Ocean which blows on the northeast coast of Madagascar with exceptional regularity from April to the end of November. Regular and oriented towards the bay, it is established every day between 20 and 35 knots. Ideal for sliding!


Our lodge is located a few meters from the lagoon. Just inflate your sail and put your foot in the water to start instantly. A midday break? You leave your equipment on the dunes, in front of the lodge, for meal time, before a new session.


The shallow lagoon offers ideal conditions for beginners or for advanced kitesurfers. The wind is oriented towards the bay, in case of problems, you are automatically brought back to the beach, in complete safety.
