MAURITIUS – THE LEGEND OF ONE EYE

MAURITIUS – THE LEGEND OF ONE EYE

One Eye – that’s the name of the legendary wave in front of a reef surrounding the lagoon of Le Morne on Mauritius. It is one of the world’s fastest and cleanest windsurf waves, right in the middle of the Indian Ocean.

The first time I’d ever heard of One Eye, I didn’t even think that I would ever windsurf in a wave like that. It was a story about the Windsurf-Trilogy, a three-part, invitational event in the mid-90s, carried out in different wave spots all over the globe.

BOUJMAA GUILLOUL IN MAURITIUS

A few weeks ago, Boujmaa Guilloul travelled to Mauritius to film for The Yard. And he scored! A couple of sessions at One Eye, the famously fast and dangerous left-hander and simply being in the water. Surfing, windsurfing and surfing again…

Boujmaa in Mauritius from boujmaa guilloul on Vimeo.


“This place is magic. I’ve been repeating this in my mind the whole time I’ve been here and it is the truth. I’ve been to places and few of them offered such quality of riding. Besides, the life outside the water is very interesting, nature-wise and human-wise. People are super nice and friendly, it’s the place that every single surfer, windsurfer and kitesurfer should visit at least once in a lifetime.”

GALAPAGOS ISLANDS – THE LAND THAT TIME FORGOT!

The Galapagos Islands, made famous by Charles Darwin and the unique wildlife he studied, remain one of the most pristine tropical island ecosystems in the world. 

Kauli Seadi and his fiancée Maria Fernanda Souza were lucky enough to be invited to this amazing location as guests on the Mormaii Catamaran. Of course the three-time World Champion went armed with his windsurf and SUP quiver to be primed and ready for action!
