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 would actually be enough for a two-week kite trip. Depending on the swell, there are waves from one to several meters. Sunset Beach is more suitable for advanced kitesurfers. Unlike St. Peter Ording 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 one-mile-long to Blouberg beach. This bay is again divided into different sections. You may have heard of some of these famous beaches before: Dolphin Beach, Table View, Kitebeach. You probably already guessed: the next key word is downwinder…

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

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

The wind starts at around mid day (so you can sleep late or relax in the morning exploring the area) and perhaps explore the south end – our homespot Sunset Beachis usually first on the list. Generally, the further north you go, the less wind.

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

To check the current wind in Sunset Beach check out the weather station, which is set up right on top of the KiteWorldWide Mansion.

Accommodations

KiteWorldWide Mansion Cape Town

This loft-style villa in Sunset Beach, just 100 meters from the beach and the famous, “Parking 1” spot, really impressed us immediately; in fact, it impressed us so much that we decided to rent it for the next few years on the spot!

The high ceiling in the great living room makes for a bright atmosphere. Along with chilled sofas, a large flat screen TV for you to watch your pictures and videos of the day, or the last kitesurfing movies, creates an immediate feeling of community.

In the large, fully equipped kitchen with refrigerators for each room, you can easily prepare your favourite breakfast.
For dinner there are several options. Of course you can make use of one of the many kitchen facilities, and cook your own dinner at home, you will have: 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.

Your guide on site will give the best tips on where to go!

Oh, and did we mention the large sun roof terrace with the view of Table Mountain and the kite spot? You will find not only amazing views on the roof but also our rooftop pool.
Take a dip and relax while soaking in these incredible South African views.

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 wind ;) ), but please do not expect the European speed and reliability.

Rooms

We have some awesome common rooms for you at the mansion: 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.

Chic, comfortable guest rooms await you, all with private bathrooms, shower / WC.  Included is also the daily cleaning of the common rooms as well as your own room, bed linen and towels. Should you need to wash your clothes, this can be arranged at an additional fee by the housekeepers.

In the common areas, WiFi is available, it isn’t quite at the European speed and reliability, but it’s sufficient for checking your emails (and wind ;)).

There are two types of rooms available. 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 ;)).

Cosy Room

These 25 square meter big rooms are situated on the ground floor, and can accomodate up to two people. These rooms are really convenient for single travelers, as the single room prices are very affordable.

Two out of three rooms have access to the garden. Comfortable beds (twin or double bed) with luxurious feather beds for the best sleep you could ask for.

Cosy rooms come with an ensuite bathroom with a warm water shower, toilet. You also have your own 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 others and should not be planned for the 2 meter person among you.

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

Breakfast – as you wish

The Mansion offers you a large, well equipped kitchen. 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 need.

Prices

The prices include the KiteWorldWide tour guide who will always provide you with useful tips for kiting and other activities in and around Cape Town.

Included in the Price

Program and support from KiteWorldWide guide

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

Regularly we offer activities and excursions.

Among other things we go to the Biscuit Mill Market for feasting and shopping, to Langebaan for kitesurfing and indulging yourself in the great fish and seafood experience at the beach restaurant. Further on we visit the cape, try some of the famous SA wines, go to the city or the east side of the peninsula over to the Indian Ocean!

Your guide is also an expert when it comes to other, exhilarating activities. Skydiving, shark diving, helicopter flights – even in combat mode, paragliding, abseiling, bungee jumping. Its almost impossible to get bored here, there is just so much to see and do.

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 should you be with friends or family who don’t kite they still have a lot to do on a Cape Town vacation.

Not included in the price

Food and 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 and 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.
