SPOT INFO Cape Town

WIND & CLIMATE

South Africa is known for its dominant South Easter winds, which, normally, starts around 11am with a modest 15 knots and keeps building till sunset to approximately 20 to 30 knots. There are several spots nearby to kite. The average air- temperature lies between the 20 and 30 degrees Celsius. The water temperature varies between the 12 and 17 degrees Celsius. 

KITE SPOT

In front of our villa we have Bloubergstrand, which is a wide open beach that receives beautiful long distance rolling waves. If we drive 10 min upwind, to sunset beach, we are able to organise a downwinder to Bloubergstrand. Also, we are able to organise a downwinder from Bloubergstrand to Haakgat. Haakgat is an amazing point-break that can handle a lot of swell and where the waves gives you the opportunity to learn new turns and connect several turns in one wave. 

Next to these options we have the possibility to drive to Langebaan, an amazing flatwater spot, and Witsands.

PROGRAM

The program is fairly easy in Cape Town! Every morning we will have breakfast in our villa organised by our local chef. Depending on the forecast we will make a plan.. or we go for a session in front of the door with our professional instructors to have fun and to progress. Or we organise a downwinder from sunset or to Haakgat. If there’s no wind in the forecast in Blouberg, then we can decide (depending on the forecast) to make a road-trip to Langebaan or Witsands. 

After we all got back home after our satisfying session we get back to our villa for a drink and discuss our bloopers, tricks and video-analysis. 

ENVIRONMENT 
You can do different excursions / city trips to places in the area. Consider a visit to the metropolis Cape Town, Robben Island, wine-tasting or mountain-biking. In addition, it is possible to surf in Muizenberg, do a great hike through the nature that South Africa has to offer, book a safari or relax and enjoy your well-deserved vacation and the beautiful weather.

Lovely apartment in Blouberg

Your stay

You will stay in a beautiful villa in Blouberg. Approx. 7 min walk from the kite spot. A cozy village with a few nice restaurants / bars and shops.

How can I book a trip?

How can I book a trip Booking a trip with us is very easy. Just send us a berichtje, phone call, whats appje or send a carrier pigeon that you want and we will take care of the rest. Once you book, we reserve a place for you for the journey up to 10 days. If the deposit has been transferred (25% of the total amount) then you are sure that you will be there! You can still cancel the trip for free up to 2 days after your booking, after which costs will be charged.

How is the group composition?

Our groups can vary from young to old, and are often evenly divided with both men and women. The group usually consists of ages between 20 and 45 with exceptions of course. We teach beginners and give tips to advanced kite surfers so you can expect every level with us. We also often offer group activities that you can join without obligation. On some trips you may share a large room with other KiteActive guests, but this is indicated. Often you can already see in advance through our Facebook Events which people will be present during the trip.

What is the level of this trip?

From intermediate to advanced. You want to have a good independent level to enjoy Cape Town to the fullest.

Help! I can not in this period

Unfortunately!! Unfortunately we really only offer this event during this period. Outside of this period, we fortunately have a lot of other cool kitesurf events and keep an eye on our Facebook to stay informed when new data for Mauritius comes online.

Do you also arrange the flight?

Basically not, we mainly advise which flight is best for booking! You fly to Dubrovnik or Split. We recommend Dubrovnik because it is cheaper and closer. After your landing it is a 2 hour drive to the end point. Easyjet flies directly for good prices. We also recommend that you check Skyscanner for your best flight. Would you rather KiteActive take care of everything? No problem. Set your data, budget, and possibly. preferences (travel time / legroom / transfer) on the mail and we book the best flight for you for only € 35 booking costs.

zo ziet een gemiddelde week eruit

Programma

1

Dag 1 | zondag

Na aankomst gaan we eerst richting het guesthouse om even te settelen. Afhankelijk van de aankomsttijd plannen we de rest van de dag op locatie in.
2

Dag 2 | maandag

Een goed begin van de dag begint met een lekker ontbijt. Vervolgens gaan we rustig richting de kitespot om de locatie eens goed te bekijken. Rustig omdat de thermische wind vaak rond 14:00 lekker doorkomt. Rond 13:00 eerst nog even een stevige lunch, om vervolgens tot de laatste zonnestraal op het water te staan. Wanneer de zon ons heeft verlaten gaan we gezellig met z’n allen op zoek naar een leuk Kroaats restaurantje voor een heerlijke maaltijd. Misschien een paar drankjes en dan op naar de volgende dag.
3

Dag 3 | dinsdag

Vandaag is het tijd om het mooie dorpje met daglicht te verkennen voordat we het water op gaan. Alvast opzoek naar de volgende leuke eettent voor lunch en avond. Wanneer de wind aan gaat gaan we deze maximaal benutten. Als we allemaal voldaan van het water afkomen misschien nog een klein kampvuurtje tijdens de mooie zonsondergang en dan lekker richting het avondeten.
4

Dag 4 | woensdag

De nodige kitesurf uren zijn achter de rug. Tijd om deze ochtend na het ontbijt eens goed te gaan gebruiken om elkaar op de hoogte te stellen van wat voor nieuwe dingen we willen gaan leren op het water.
5

Dag 5 | donderdag

Een ochtend met vrije invulling. Lekker relaxen op het strand tot de wind op komt zetten of één van de vele andere mogelijkheden. Om 13:30 verzamelen op het strand zodat we weer lekker het water op kunnen.
6

Dag 6 | vrijdag

Eigen invulling van de dag.
7

Dag 7 | zaterdag

Tijd om de boel op scherp te zetten. De week nadert ten einde dus vandaag gaan we proberen alle kitesurf doelen te behalen. Van de eerste 100 meter varen tot aan de mooiste trucjes, alles aan de hand van jouw niveau.
8

Dag 8 | zondag

Dag van vertrek na hopelijk een onvergetelijke week met ons in Kroatie.

*Van het programma kan ten alle tijde afgeweken worden. Het is een richtlijn en onze instructeurs ter plaatse zullen verdere planningen toelichten.
