THE KITESCHOOL

At Kitesurfing Langebaan & Cape Town we offer a wide variety of lessons, catering for everybody’s needs, from the beginner to advanced kite surfer.
 

When completing the beginner lessons in Langebaan, we want to give you the best possible start, hence we are one of the few schools who offer their students 5 hours of teaching per day. Equally, we understand this can be very intense and that it is important to rest the body and mind. This means that every day will be a long, intensive but rewarding day.
 

We promise you will experience pure fun and adrenaline throughout your lessons, nevertheless your safety is our paramount concern when introducing you to this extreme sport. It is not our aim to get you kitesurfing as quickly as possible, but as safely as possible, in order to make you a confident and responsible kite surfer.
