Video: Kitesurfing in Langebaan (Western Cape)

The town of Langebaan is situated 120 km north of Cape Town, just off the R27, about 30km from Vredenburg and rouhgly 20km from Saldanha Bay. The town is situated at the Langebaan Lagoon which stretches for 17km from Saldanha Bay to Geelbek in the South. The flat water, the consistent wind and the  relatively warm water - at least compared to the rest of the Atlantic - are making Langebaan one of the top kitesurfing spots in South Africa.

Learn to kitesurf in Cape Town
Professional kite surfers will show you the way to handle the kite from the beach and then take you out into the water and give you individual training, to make you confident in the water and prepare you for getting air high above the waves.
Lessons are taught in 2 hour modules. 3 modules are recommended:
  • Module 1: Theory and kite set up, kite piloting, launching & landing.
  • Module 2: Advanced kite flying skills and body dragging.
  • Module 3: Introduction to the board.
Lessons usually take place at Blouberg, Cape Town.
