Cape Town Kitesurfing Lessons

See Our daily Lessons

Kitesurfing is an extreme sport that has become one of the fastest growing water sports in the world and Cape Town is one of the best locations on the planet to kitesurf. Big Bay  is the home of the Red Bull “King of the Air”, one of the biggest kiteboarding competitions of the year. Professional kiteboarders from around the globe travel to Cape Town to train during our summer for the upcoming contest year, because of our excellent conditions and amazing kiteboarding spots.

We have had the privilege and experience of teaching kitesurfing for over 15 years and have adapted a unique method that will get you up and riding safely, in the fastest possible time.

We offer 2, 4 & 6 hour daily courses as well as a 3 day (12 hours) full beginner’s kitesurfing course that is designed to get you up and riding on the board as fast as possible.

Our instructors are fully qualified IKO instructors (International Kiteboarding Organization), and we have implemented the use of radio helmets in our water lessons, this enables us to communicate with our students throughout the lesson.

We recommend a minimum of 6 hours and maximum of 12 hours in order to get you riding on the board, but every student learns at his or her own pace, therefore it’s impossible to evaluate a person until he\she has completed the first lesson, only then are we able to estimate your progression and how many hours of teaching you may need.

R495 per hour per student will be charged for each group lesson  – this includes the instructor and all equipment. We teach a maximum of 2 students per instructor.

We offer the following lessons daily:

  • 2 hour group kitesurfing lessons,

2 or 3 hours Group Body Drag Kiteboarding Lesson

2h R990.00 – 3h R1485.00 per person

This Is Where The Real Fun Starts.

We recommend between 2 to 3 hours for your body drag session, this would be for students that have already mastered kite control, know and understand all the steps from the 4 hour beginners course as well as the advanced kite flying skills – It is important that you feel comfortable and familiar with the kite – before your first body drag. Your instructor will explain and demonstrate how the skills should be performed, before sending you into the water independently while controlling the kite. You will then use your kite to generate power by flying it through and around the wind window. You will use this power to body drag yourself away from shore, and then safely back to the beach.

Instructors will always be in touch with you using our radio helmets ( this is the safest way for a fast learning experience). Once you have mastered body dragging skills you will be ready for your first water start.
