- Body boarding: You will have a short board for a bit more stability and you will rest your upper body on the board. You don't need to know a lot of technical things which makes it easy to try even when the waves are not so high.
- Sup (stand up paddling): With stand up paddling you have a large surfboard and a special paddle to make your way through the water. It's easy to learn but requires good balance, this is why it's good for your body. Stand up paddling is a good alternative for when there is not much wind and smaller waves.
- Wind surfing: You will have a board where you can fit a sail on. Under the surfboard you have fins for more stability. For this type of watersports you don't need waves, but as the name mentions, you do need wind.
- Kite surfing: Cape Verde well known as the ideal kite surf destination. With kite surfing you will use a smaller board, with our without straps and you will move forward because of the kite. You need a bit more technique but not so much strength. With enough wind you can make nice jumps. It might not seem that way, but kite surfing is easier than wave surfing.
