Kite with special guest Lewis Crathern in Cape Town!

We have often written and thought, one could not make a kite trip any better. But now we have really done it:

You can’t get more!

A week of kiting with the ultimate pro’s of the scene.

Lewis Crathern: “The man that touched the sky” (and jumped Brighton Pier)

Together on the water, having fun, spot guiding, special training, photo shootings, video tapping and analysis. Together with the pros by your side and the absolute newest kite gear from BEST to test. Here we offer you workshops to understand the gear and worldy tips for your physical and mental fitness. Explore the entire Cape with us, discover the exclusive spots and enjoy the BBQ at night!

And there is one more cool thing: we live in the KiteWorldWide Mansion Cape Town.

Then after the performance we will all move to the enjoyable evening of getting to know each other. Right off the terrace we will marvel ourselves with refreshing ice cold beers and BBQ. The mansion has an entrance to the Sunset Beach. You will enjoy yourself conversing with the pros about the many adventures this day has brought about. And anyone who still wants to talk shop about the material: the head developer of Best kiteboards are also here!

Weekly Kitesurf clinics for advanced kitesurfers

Kitesurf clinics for advanced kiters

For those of you who like to kite with an experienced guide around Cape Town in a group of like-minded riders on a similar level, we have the perfect offer for you: the Advanced Kitesurf Camps. These camps are designed specifically for advanced riders (at least level 3 IKO, upwind, turning, basic jumps) and include courses over a time period of one week, five days kiting all together. We look for the best days of the week (Saturday-Friday) with optimal wind conditions.

Together with the guide you will discover the several spots in and around Cape Town you would probably not see otherwise. The Guide is constantly watching your back so you have a safe feeling kiting in all conditions. Apart from that, he is also a VDWS licensed instructor who can always answer questions if you are struggeling with a particular move.

Transfers to the spots are not included so you need to rent a car. Fortunately we have very stylish Mercedes youngtimer at the Mansion to rent. These are perfect for kitesurfers and not pricy at all.

Depending on the number of participants, the group is accompanied by one (up to about five participants) or two (up to 10 participants) guides. You are each day, depending on conditions and number of participants, at a spot for three to six hours.

KiteWorldWide Mansion Cape Town

This is a preview to our brandnew KiteWorldWide Mansion Capetown! We just made a deal for this awesome loft-style villa, just a few steps from famous Sunset Beach.

What the ‘bunny’ mansion is to Hugh Heffner, from Novermber 2012 the KiteWorldWide Mansion Cape Town is to kiters.

This loft-style villa in Sunset Beach, just 100 meters from the beach and the famous, Parking 1 ‘away, has impressed us immediately. So much so that we have taken this completely for the next few years under contract.

A large living room with high, light-filled blanket and chill sofas for guests, large flat screen TV to view your trip pictures and kiting videos and an immediate feeling of community that has no comparison.

In the large, fully equipped kitchen with refrigerator compartments for each room you can easily prepare your favorite breakfast. For dinner you can go anywhere, because the restaurants in and around Cape Town prepare food at prices which you cannot match.

Oh, and did we mention the large sun roof terrace with the view of Table Mountain and the kite spot? ‘Of course’ also found here on the roof of Sunset Beach and the pool house can you see a portion of the Atlantic Ocean.

Since the Mansion was designed and built by a Kitesufer there is also a storage garage and outdoor garden shower. (Kitestorage fee? Not in the KiteWorldWide Mansion. You store your stuff for free!)

Rounding out the house with chic, comfortable guest rooms, all with a private bathroom with shower / WC.

In the common areas, WiFi is available, which in perfect for checking your emails (and wind ;) ) ranges, but please do not expect the European speed and reliability.

Rooms

You have of course access to the common rooms – living room & chill area, kitchen, garden, free kite storage option in the garage. In the kitchen is a refrigerator shelf for you reserved.

Of course, comfortable bedding, towels and daily cleaning of rooms and common areas are already included. Furthermore the housekeeper will wash your laundry for little money.

There are three types of rooms available.

Premium Room

These lie on the ground floor, 25 square meter rooms with access to the garden, can accommodate up to two people. Comfortable beds (twin or double bed) with luxurious feather beds for the best sleep you could ask for. Surely all Premium rooms come with an own comfortable bathroom with a warm water shower and toilet. The rooms also offer electronic safes. Two of these rooms are connected through a door and perfectly suitable for groups or families.w

Deluxe Room

These bright, 30-40 square meter rooms are located on the first floor, and are generously large for extra storage space. Some also have an extra bed, so that they can accommodate for three people. (The third bed is of course not as comfortable as the others and should not be planned for the 2 meter person among you)

Every Deluxe room comes with a comfortable bathroom with a warm water shower, toilet and an electronic safe. Two rooms are connected by a door. This makes this suite ideal for the young family with up to two children.

We will try to consider your request for a double bed or twin bed (two singles), but cannot guarantee this (if it is already booked ;)).

Further Kitesurf Information & Activities

Kite surfing in Cape Town – Spots

The west coast, north of Cape Town offers a variety of spots for all tastes and skill levels. Since the wind is amplified there by different thermal and topographic effects, a distance of just a few kilometers already has a great impact on the conditions.

Right outside the door you will find the Sunset Beach, a spot that would actually be enough for a two-week kite trip. Depending on the swell waves, it is from one to several meters. But unlike St. Peter Ording, as usual, since “Kabbel chaos”, but with nice, long, glassy-flats “in between. So you can really take a run for the next wave kicker.

Sunset runs approximately one mile long along from the bay to Blouber beach. This bay is again divided into different sections. The names you’ve probably heard before: Dolphin Beach, Table View, Kitebeach. You already noticed it: Down Winder is the next word!

Sunset is the perfect base for starting a downwinder up north!

Before Blouberg beach is the first section with rocks and only very experienced riders should go there. Then behind the Big Bay is an area with other conditions.

The wind runs throughout the entire day, so you can sleep or relax in the morning exploring the area.

It starts in the south (ie front door) before and goes generally from the south to the north.

Quite different conditions can be found in shallow water spot of Langebaan. Here in about an hour away, even beginners will find a beautiful lagoon area, but it can get very busy here, especially during high season.

A comprehensive spot guide follows.

Program and support from KiteWorldWide guide

The entire kite season, from 1 November to 15 April has a KiteWorldWide guide with you on the spot. He knows everything when it comes to kite surfing, eating out and doing further activities in and around Cape Town.

Regularly mostly free activities and excursions are available, which you can ride in a convoy with your stylish classic car.

Among other things, go to the Biscuit Mill Market for feasting and shopping, to Langebaan for kiting and endulge yourself in the great fish and seafood experience at the Beach restaurant, at the Cape, try the wine from the city or from the east side of the peninsula to the Indian Ocean.

Your guide is also a well-informed partner when it comes to other, exhilarating activities. Skydiving, shark diving, helicopter flights – even in combat mode, paragliding, abseiling, bungee jumping. Who ever gets bored during their stay here, is to blame.

The activities are timed so it is possible to go in the morning and time for the onset of South-Easter winds are again near the Mansion.

Your non-kiter company has a lot to do on their Cape Town vacation.

Activities & Excursions

Cape Town is more than a holiday – and more than ‘just’ surfing. The claim of the city is not in vain: “you don`t need a holiday, you need Cape Town.”

Incredible nature experiences with a great countrylife and wildlife, ranging from beautiful beaches to vineyards, from penguins to whales.

Trips to countless wineries inclusive wine tasting, to the Cape, on the Table Mountain, or even a safari with a “Big 5” guaranty create also non-kiters an unforgettable holiday.

Further more you can find all extreme sports you can imagine. Skydiving from 20 min. remote drop zone, abseiling from the Table Mountain, paragliding, speedboat drives, helicopter flights – even in the action-packed combat mode – the highest bungy jump of the world. The South-Easter wind begins at noon so you have enough time to finally try everything you`ve ever wanted.

Our local guide provides you with helpful tips on how to explore the countless adventures on your own.

Food and Night Life in Cape Town

Breakfast – as you wish

The Mansion offers you a large, well appointed kitchen. Of course included with housekeeping that is going to take care of washing up and daily cleaning. ;) In order to that you are always completely flexible and can eat whatever you want whenever you want. Only two minutes away by car, ten minutes by foot, you will find a great supermarket with lots of fresh fruits and vegetables and everything else you need.

Food and dining in Cape Town

During our trip to Cape Town we had the idea of offering gourmet travel at the low season. The quality of food at the restaurants in and around Cape Town is amazingly good. After knowing that you won`t eat in a hotel or prepare something by yourself. For those prices that been offered in the restaurants you won`t be able to cook those meals by yourself. Here the food is not cheap ‘, but for its quality extremely low priced. You can get perfectly grilled 300 g beef fillets for twelve Euros and seafood plates fewer than ten Euros and a delicious bottle of wine from South Africa for five Euros. Several times a week, we will reserve seats in the best restaurants in town and who wants to go out and dine in a group is always invited to join.

Once a week we organize a typical South African Braai (BBQ) in the garden of the Mansion.

In addition we offer „gourmet- happenings” – for example the Old Bisquit Mill market every Saturday Morning or a ten course meal with fish and seafood in an amazing Beach Restaurant Strandloper located in Langebaan.

Surely all those activities are perfectly timed so that you have enough time for burning as much calories on the water as you can.

Going out and Nightlife

Everyone who has enough power left, gets in the evening and at night one`s money`s worth. During the summer months (our winter) Cape Town is the advertising – and film Mecca. Top Models and staff of the companies get the party started in Camps Bay. And along the Long Street pubs, clubs and bars are right next to each other.
