Learn to kitesurf and paddleboard on South Africa's coasts

ActiveSouth Africa

South Africa is a beautiful destination for nautical sports, offering breathtaking natural settings for kitesurfing and paddleboarding.

Cape Town is an ideal place to learn how to kitesurf while soaking up the beautiful natural surrounds. Lagoon Beach, located north of the city center, is a top-rated beach for beginners and experienced kitesurfers thanks to its optimal wind conditions. Ask your local agency for a certified instructor to accompany you, and you'll experience a thrilling few hours against the backdrop of Table Mountain.

Beginners and pros can also partake in this high-speed sport outside of the town of Langebaan, located around an hour and a half's drive north of Cape Town. With its turquoise bay and favorable winds, this is the perfect spot for renting kitesurfing equipment and letting the wind whisk you away. Its lagoon, located in the heart of a nature reserve, is also a popular spot for paddleboarding.
