Simple, because it’s a thousand times safer. The same way you’d always take driving lessons before driving a car, well, it’s no different here.
Kitesurfing requires you to learn everything step-by-step. Once you have familiarized yourself with the control system of kiting, your overall skills will improve dramatically.
Things such as confidence, will naturally increase overtime. The longer you have that kite in the sky, the more confidence you’ll gain!
By taking kitesurfing lessons you’ll not only ensure your safety by 1000x, but you’ll ensure the safety of other beach goers too.
We don’t employ the most experienced kitesurf instructors for no reason. They are there to guide you through the whole learning process of becoming a kite surfer.

In the summer months from November – April, a trade wind known by the locals as the Cape Doctor, rushes in from the South East.
While many of the locals are usually annoyed by the appearance of this south easterly trade wind, it is the kite surfers signal to grab their gear and head to the nearest beach!
