Kitesurfing Lessons In Cape Town & Langebaan

Kitesurfing is one of the greatest watersports to learn on vacation or as a full time hobby. It is exciting, thrilling and you can learn everything you need to in about 12 hours depending on the student.

Cape Town is one of the best places in the world to take kitesurfing lessons due to our fantastic conditions, windy summer days, beautiful beaches and committed kitesurfing community.

Cape Town is home to the Red Bull King of the Air and a number of professional kitesurfers make an annual migration to Cape Town each year to spend the Northern Hemisphere winter enjoying South Africa’s warm summer days and predictable winds.

Big Bay Surf and our kitesurfing school at Cabrinha kitesurfing offer some of the best kitesurfing lessons in Cape Town from our headquarters in Big Bay.

We run our lessons from two locations, our store in Big Bay and in Langebaan.
