Flat water or wave spots, sand or point break endless wind – everything is within 20 minutes of travel when you are in Masira Island.
The season kicks off in May/June and kiters as well as windsurfers are packing their gear to travel to this playground of various untouched spots. 20 to 45 knots of wind day and night steady from south, huge flat lagoons on the west coast and the waves of the Indian Ocean on the east coast make this island a kitesurfers’ heaven.
