She works as much as possible with the locals living on Boa Vista. This is important in Cape Verde because this is a poor country where many foreign fortune seekers settle. As far as we are concerned, the money that tourism brings in should go to the locals as much as possible and not to the westerners. Take kitesurfing lessons at kiteschool KiteKriol; a school built from scratch.
