Kiteboarding Cape Town


For the last month I have been fortunate enough to have operated out of Big Bay Cape Town, home to every Kitesurfer, his Dog and his Beetle car. Whenever I find myself in Western Province Country, I stay at an apartment that has spectacular views across the water to Table Mountain, and contrary to Durban, the sun sets over the sea which can be absolutely breath-taking.

Although I don’t kitesurf myself, I am always amazed at what can best be described as the “Kiteboarding Culture” that exists in these parts, everybody does it. In the Big Bay, Blouburg, Table View area, people eat drink and sleep kiteboarding….drink again, then drink some more,

There are days when the winds really pumping and from the beach you get to see the most amazing jumps, I do however from a spectator viewpoint also enjoy the milder days when the sky is literally littered with hundreds of kites creating a massive collage of colour against the turquoise blue backdrop.
