BEGINNER KITESURF COURSES & ADVANCED LESSONS

Blouberg, Cape Town
2022-2023

KITESURFSCHOOL RELOADED

Our dream is to create a reciprocal kitesurf community for South Africa's lesser fortunates.

 

The past Covid years have been turbulent for everyone. For us it was time for something new!

 

We decided to re-open the kiteschool in Blouberg, Cape Town.

 

Besides teaching kitesurfing, our aim is, to professionally educate unfortunate disadvantaged youngsters.

 

We will teach them a skillset that can be used in South Africa's kitesurfing industry.

 

- By simply booking a lesson, you help us achieve this goal.

JAN VANDEVELDE

Belgian, 56

After Jan's carreer as engineer, he decided it was time for a change of life. 

Ever since, you'll find him at the beach when the wind is blowing, either teaching or taking his own kite out for a jump session.

Besides kitesurfing, Jan himself is still a student of arts studying Ceramics in Belgium. You can follow his projects at www.instagram.com/jan.vandevelde2

Jan is an exceptional teacher, with years of experience, his calm personality and empathy, he has guided hundreds of students become great kitesurfers.

THOMAS DE VOS

Dutch, 35

Thomas feels absolute freedom when he is part of the ocean. 

 

When there is no wind, you'll find him in the water, either openwaterswimming (check out www.fox-openwaterswimming.com), diving, hiking or eating.

 

Thomas studied psychology. Even-though he is not active in the field of psychology, this might explain where his patience comes from when he teaches.

 

With lots of passion, energy and patience he will coach you through your own kitesurfing process.

Jan and Thomas met in Langebaan, sharing the same passion for kitesurfing and teaching.
