Kitesurfing school Cape Town
Book a few kitesurfing lessons with us and you’ll be a pro in no time
Kitesurfing’s popularity has soared to dizzying heights since its inception in the late 1990s. Cape Town, as usual, is hot on trend with this fun watersport. In our city, bustling with surfers and other wave riders, wind and water is almost sacred. The warm weather, great variety of kitesurf spots and only moderately busy beaches make the Mother City an optimal kiting destination. Our coastlines and the Langebaan Lagoon are kind to both beginning kitesurfers and advanced kiteboarders looking to master new kite tricks, achieve bigger airs and learn to kitesurf larger waves.
High Five Kitesurfing School in Cape Town and Langebaan is the ideal destination to conquer the world’s hottest adrenalin sport! With our IKO Certified Kitesurf Instructors running daily lessons at Kitebeach and Langebaan Lagoon we will have you up and riding safely in no time, people of all ages and experience levels can learn to kite! The SE (prevailing summer wind in Cape Town) blows parallel to the beach, providing world-class conditions most days in the summer. Wind tends to blow from 10 – 30 knots regularly, and it is a dense wind great for awesome kitesurf sessions.
Surf & Sup
Stand up paddle surfing (SUP): This is a traditional Hawaiian sport which promotes balance, strength and general fitness. It’s great for surfers and non-surfers alike, as it provides a good workout while at the same time it’s a fun way to view the natural surroundings. Take a SUP lesson from one of our experienced instructors or let us take you on a SUP tour around the small islands in Big Bay, where we might spot some seals!
Ready for an adventure? There is so much incredible cool stuff to do next to the Kitesurfing in the Cape region. Snorkeling with seals, paragliding and abseiling are just some examples! We can always make a plan for a fantastic day full of action and fun. With or without wind, guaranteed fun!
We run our own couple of Surf Guesthouses on the beachfront at Bloubergstrand. This is a 20min. drive from Cape Town city centre. We run our kitesurfing courses from here or at Langebaan lagoon, wherever the conditions are the best for you that day. Come for the day or stay in one of our guesthouses and become a pro in no-time!
