Home – Kitesurf in Cape Town

Cabrinha Kiteboarding is South Africa’s best kitesurfing center.

Location, Location, Location

Cape Town, South Africa is one of the best locations in the world to kitesurf. Shadowed by the mighty Table Mountain, Blouberg and Big Bay’s white sandy beaches stretch out along the crystal blue Atlantic Ocean lining up perfectly for supreme long-shore kiteboarding conditions when the summer trade winds come howling out of the South East. Our store is located in Big Bay which is now the home of the Red Bull “King of the Air”, which is one of the largest kiteboarding competitions of the year. Big Bay is one of the best places to learn how to kiteboard in Cape Town.
