Cape Town Kitesurfing Lessons
Kitesurfing is an extreme sport that has become one of the fastest growing sports in the world. As one of the oldest kitesurfing centres in South Africa teaching for over 15 years, we have mastered the best techniques required to teach you how to kitesurf in a safe and friendly learning environment. All our instructors are fully certified IKO (International Kiteboarding Organization) instructors. We’ll take you to the best spots for kiteboarding lessons in Cape Town and Langebaan to learn in the most ideal conditions. We teach directly in front of our shop at Big Bay as well as in the Langebaan lagoon, which is internationally known as one of the best places for kitesurfing lessons.
We offer 2, 4 or 6-hour one-day courses as well as a three-day (10 hours) full beginner’s course that aims to get you up on the board as quickly as possible. We use radio helmets in our water lessons, which enables us to communicate with our students throughout the entire lesson.

The 4-hour beginners course is recommended for people who are serious about getting into the sport. All the basics are taught on the beach and once all kite control skills have been covered (3 or 4 hours) you will be ready to move on and get into the water for body-dragging lessons.

- Kite launching & landing
- Kite re-launching from the water/ground
- Power stroke - how to generate power from your kite
- Advanced kite flying skills/li>
This lesson will teach you all you need to know to move on to your body-drag lesson.
2/3 hours Group Body-drag Kiteboarding Lesson
2h R990.00 – 3h R1485.00 per person
This Is Where The Real Fun Starts.
We recommend 2-3 hours for your body-drag session. This lesson is ideal for students that have already done kite control and advanced kite flying skills, as it’s important that you feel comfortable and familiar with the kite before moving into the water. Your instructor will explain and show you the necessary skills on the beach before you go into the water to control the kite independently. You will learn how to use your kite to generate maximum power and how to use that power to body-drag yourself away from shore and safely back to the beach. Instructors will always be in touch with you by using our radio helmets (safest way for a fast learning process). Once the body-drag lesson is done you will be ready for your first water start.
4/6-hour Board Lesson at Langebaan
4h R1980.00 – 6h R2970.00 per person
All our board lessons are held in Langebaan in the famous Shark Bay lagoon. Shark Bay is paradise for learning to get up on the board, improving your riding skills or for advanced lessons. The lagoon offers perfect conditions with flat and shallow waters, which makes it the easiest and fastest place for you to learn. Lessons are in groups of 2 students per instructor.

R790.00 per hour
Recommended for those wanting to learn quickly or as a refresher course!
A private lesson is the best if you are keen to learn as quickly as possible. It’s perfect for those students that want to improve faster or for people who need a refresher to quickly get back to their previous level.
