Kiteboarding Events Explorer Tour Cape Town

On the water together, having fun, kitesurf spot guiding and coaching.  Together with the leading kite event agent ” Kiteboarding Events” we will start the Cape Town Explorer Tour this year! What awaits you? The Kiteboarding Events coach team, a huge material pool with test kites and boards from different brands and of course the assistance of the KiteWorldWide team on site.

Explore the surroundings of Cape Town with us, discover the hottest kitesurf spots and enjoy the Braai (S.A BBQ) in the evening! In small groups of maximum eight advanced kite surfers we hit the waves at and around the cape.

There is always at least one coach on the water with you, to give you tips on jumps, jibbs or other tricks with the wave board or twintip.  If it does get too dicey, you can be sure, there is always someone to help you bail you out. In addition to the daily kiting at the house spots we will be taking one or the other downwinders to inimitable spots such as the Cape of good Hope national park. We will be taking photos and videos throughout all the trip, so we can discuss and optimize your wave-technique, jumps and jibbs with a cold beer in the evening.

In addition to kitesurfing you’ll see everything that makes a Cape Town holiday so special: impressive nature, vineyards, beaches, shopping and of course a little partying too.

On top of that you´ll get this cool location: We live in the KiteWorldWide Mansion Cape Town.  After our performance of the day the focus lays just on enjoyment. We gaze at the sunset at Sunset Beach, with a cool beer in our hands and a hot grill on the rooftop of the Mansion. Life does not get any better!

Accommodation directly at the kitesurfing spot Cape Town

KiteWorldWide Mansion Cape Town

Facilities

What for Hugh Heffner is the Mansion with his “Play boy Bunnies”, is for kiters the KiteWorldWide Mansion in Cape Town.

This loft-style villa in Sunset Beach, only 100 m away from the beach and the famous “parking 1” spot impressed us immediately. Indeed that impressed, that we decided to take the Mansion under contract for the next several years years.

The high ceilings in the great living room makes for a bright atmosphere. Along with chill sofas, a large flat screen TV for you to watch the pics of the day or the last kitesurfing movies, create an immediate feeling of community.

In the large, fully equipped kitchen with refrigerator compartments for each room, you can easily prepare your favorite breakfast. For dinner there are several options. Of course you can make use of one of the many kitchen facilities, and cook your dinner at home: Gas stove, oven, microwave, toaster, coffee machine and not to forget, the great BBQ grill.

Last but not least you should spend some of your evenings visiting the many restaurants in and around Cape Town. Be prepared for the most amazing food at unbeatable prices.

Oh, and did we mention the large sun roof terrace with the views of the iconic Table Mountain and the kite spot? ‘Of course’ also found here on the roof – the pool – where you can dip with the most impressive views, or chill and drink a cocktail.

Since the Mansion was designed and built by a Kitesufer there is also a storage garage and an 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 is perfect for checking your emails (and the wind forecast ;) ), but please do not expect European speed and reliability.

Rooms

There are two types of rooms available:

Cosy room

These 25 square meter big rooms are situated on the ground floor, and can accommodate up to two people. The rooms are really convenient for single travelers, the price is discounted of course.  Two out of three rooms have a access to the garden. Comfortable beds (twin or double bed) with luxurious feather beds for the best sleep you could ask for.

All the Cozy rooms come with a private comfortable bathroom with a warm water shower, toilet and electronic safe. Two rooms are connected through a door and are thus perfectly suitable for groups or families.

Loft room

These bright, 20-40 square meter rooms are located on the first floor. Some also have an extra bed and can accommodate up to three people. The third bed is not as comfortable as the other two, this not the bed for you should you be 2 metres tall!

Every Loft 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 a young family with up to two children. We will try to consider your request on double or twin bed (two single beds), but unfortunately we can’t guarantee it. (book early to avoid disappointment ;))

Breakfast – as you wish

The Mansion offers you a large, well equipped kitchen. Which naturally includes housekeeping, we will take care of the dishes and daily cleaning. ;) In this way you are always completely flexible, you 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 may need.

There are various common rooms available for you: Living and chill room, kitchen, rooftop terrace with pool and the garden. Since the Mansion was built by a Kitesurfer there is also a garage for equipment storage for free and an outdoor garden shower to clean your quiver and have a quick shower yourself.

Included is also the daily cleaning of the common rooms as well as your own room, comfortable bed linen and towels. Should you need to wash clothes, this can be arranged at an additional fee by the housekeepers.

Kitesurfing in Cape Town

Spots

The west coast, north of Cape Town offers a variety of spots for all tastes and skills. 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 you could easy spend a two-week kite trip on.  Depending on the swell, there are waves from one to several meters.  Sunset Beach is more suitable for advanced kitesurfers. Unlike St. Peter Ording in North Germany or some of the other North sea spots with its “choppy chaos”, you will find nice, long, “glassy-flats” in between the waves. You can really take a run for the next wave kicker.

The bay starting on Sunset Beach runs approximately for one mile long to Blouberg beach. This bay is again divided into different sections. The names you’ve probably heard before: Dolphin Beach, Table View, and Kitebeach. You may have already noticed it: the next key word is downwinder…

Sunset Beach is the perfect base for starting a downwinder to head up north.

Ahead of Blouberg beach you will pass some heavy cliffs, only very experienced riders should pass here. Passing the cliff’s you will get to the Big Bay.

The wind starts around noon (so you can sleep late or relax in the morning exploring the area) and hit the south – our homespot ‘Sunset Beach’.  Generally the further north you go, the less wind there is.

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

A detailed spot-guide follows.

Program & support from KiteWorldWide guide

The entire kite season, from 1 October to 15 April there is a German KiteWorldWide guide with you on the spot. He knows everything there is to know about surfing, eating out and doing further activities in and around Cape Town.

Regularly we offer activities and excursions, mostly free of charge.

Cape Town is more than vacation – and more than “just” kitesurfing. It’s not called for nothing: “you don’t need a holiday, you need Cape Town”. Breathtaking nature with impressive landscape and wildlife, which reaches from dream beaches to vineyards and from penguins to whales.

Excursions & activities

Excursions to the countless vineyards including winetastings, to the Cape, to Table Mountain or even on Safari with Big-5 guarantee will also give your non-kiter company a unforgettable kite journey experience.

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 themselves.

The activities are timed for you to undertake activities in the morning and be back in time for the upcoming south eastern wind at the Mansion.

In this way, also your non kiter company has a lot to do on a Cape Town vacation.

Food & dining in Cape Town

During our trip to Cape Town we had the idea of offering gourmet travel during low season – since the quality of food at the restaurants in and around Cape Town is just amazingly good. Once you experience the food on offer in the local restaurants you will want to eat out all the time.  You will find it difficult to prepare such great meals for such a low price than what is offered in these restaurants. Its not Asian prices but for food of this standard it’s a real bargain.

You can get perfectly grilled 300 g beef fillets for twelve Euros, seafood plates for less 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 Biscuit Mill market every Saturday Morning or a ten course meal! with fish and seafood in an amazing beach restaurant called Strandloper located in Langebaan.

You will have an excuse to indulge in all these culinary delights that are on offer, with all the activities you will be enjoying you will need those calories.

Going out & Nightlife

Anyone who has enough power left will enjoy the local night life it’s a hell of a lot of fun.  During the summer months (our winter) Cape Town is the advertising – and film Mecca of south Africa. Top Models and staff of the production companies get the party started in Camps Bay.  Go and rub shoulder with Cape Towns A lister’s, there are heaps of pubs, bars and clubs that will not disappoint.
