Guided Downwinders

Guided Downwinders

– Cape Town –

After you’ve mastered the skills of riding upwind, doing solid transitions or even your first small jumps on flat water, the next exciting step is to conquer the rough conditions of Bloubergstrand. Big swell and strong, sometimes gusty winds are common in this place. For many riders, these conditions can be quite intimidating at first.

Therefore we offer guided downwinders in Blouberg. During this advanced kitesurfing lesson, we will make sure you’ll safely master the skill of riding on the mighty ocean! We’ll give you the pointers you need to conquer the waves, improve your bodydragging in tough conditions and we’ll rescue your board. Since we’ll be in contact via radio helmets, we can also help you improve your first jumps, backrolls and many other riding skills.

Downwinders in Cape Town

Why stay in one place when you can have a change of scenery after every jump or turn? The Where There’s Wind crew will guide you along the Blouberg coastline to give you the full experience of the best spots in Cape Town (as well as some secret spots – shhhh).

The Mystic Dolphin

Short and sweet, long and sour…wait, does that work? Doesn’t matter, all we’re saying is this is a memorable downwinder. Take it chilled and enjoy the view, or race from spot to spot, it’s up to you and your crew.

Jump in at Dolphin Beach and head on down through Kite Beach, all the way to Mystic House. How many downwinders can you do in a day? Is that a challenge? Do we have a leaderboard? Come and find out.

The Beach Braai

Slightly shorter downwinder and not as technical as Doctor’s Order, but just as epic.

From Sunset Beach to Dolphin Beach, you’ll have the whole stretch to yourself. Things get a little crowded at Dolphin and Kite Beach, but stick with your guides and they’ll show you the way. The downwinder ends at the Mystic House where, if you get the timing right, plays host to a lekker braai.

The Doctor’s Order

This 12km downwinder lets you explore the whole of Blouberg in one go. Jump in at Sunset Beach, cruise through Dolphin and Kite Beach, stop off in Big Bay for a bite to eat and then continue on your way downwind to Haakgat.

The High Five crew will guide you on your journey and will be waiting for you with a cold refreshment at the end – because what’s a downwinder without a sunset drink to finish it off?
