Cape Town is on South Africa’s southwest coast. Aside from the quality of the kitesurfing it is also famous for the iconic Table Mountain and for top quality food and wine.
If the wind doesn’t play ball then there is an incredible range of activities you can get stuck in to:

1. Go surf or SUP at the various spots – there are world class waves all around...

2. Climb Table Mountain – no trip to Cape Town is complete without summiting the famous mountain.

3. Visit town – there are plenty of quality shops to check out and a load of high-end eateries if you want to make a day of it…

4. Do a wine-tour – South Africa is world famous for its wine and you can spend a day traveling around the wineries and sampling what they have on offer. Just don’t plan too much for the next say.

5. Go to the ‘Dirty Habits playground’ for the cable 2.0 system – if you want to practice your wakestyle moves or hit some obstacles then this is the place to go.

6. World class mountain biking – there are hundreds of world class trails to check out.

7. Shark cage diving; Seal snorkelling or Freedive Apnea surf training – spend some time under the water and get a fresh perspective on things.

8. Tandem paragliding or Skydiving – check out the setup from above.

Most major international airlines offer direct flights to Cape Town.

If you are on a budget and don’t mind transferring from elsewhere in Africa then you can make some good savings and it really isn’t too much trouble…

Flights from northern Europe are around 12 hours and the great thing is that the time zone is similar.

Once you are here…

The best bet is to have a rental car already waiting for you at the airport.

Check out Rent a Cheapie or Acker Car Rentals (if you can get over the feeling these old Mercs might break down any second, these are probably the cheapest and the coolest kite-cars you can get!).

Alternatively several official operators offer shuttle services and have desks in the terminal but it is worth prebooking to save both money and hassle.

Or you can get a can from just outside the airport, although this isn’t the cheapest option.

The trip from the airport takes about 20 minutes, although you can double this in rush hour…

Kitesurf locations can be found all around Cape Town – they are divided into three main areas: Table Bay, in front of the city, the Cape Peninsula’s Atlantic coast, and False Bay, which faces the Indian Ocean.

If you are here for a while then aim to head to all three areas as they all have a different flavour and vibe and will give you the full Cape Town experience.

If you haven’t been before though and you are wondering where to have your first session and wash off the journey then it has to be Big Bay. With Table Mountain and the massive oil tankers as your backdrop: you’ll know you have finally arrived in Cape Town…
