Can you talk us through some special moments from your most recent trip/season?
We are very happy to tell you that our ION CLUB in Cabarete has moved location. Our new home is still located directly on the spot, at the Villa Taina beach. Moreover, our ION CLUB in Mauritius is re-inventing itself, and you can find us at several points all over the spot and of course still on the kite lagoon side of Le Morne. All the other centers are also experiencing renovations. Last but not least, we are proud to welcome Matchu Lopes into the ION CLUB family as our ION CLUB Sal Ambassador. We hope for many more to join.
Is anything special lined up for the next few months?
After being the first to create the Club Mistral dedicated to windsurfing in the 80s, then having developed the kite since the 2000s, since 2020 we are developing wingfoil and continue to develop it at all our ION CLUB centers! We are currently still equipping all our ION CLUBs with wing gear, and welcoming to the family of board sports this third activity for all wind lovers.
