Safety while on your kitesurfing lessons.
Kitesurfing is an extreme sport, with many important components to learn of, before you attempt anything independently.
This is why we always recommend taking kitesurfing lessons from an experienced & certified kitesurfing school.
Why? 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, you’ll also 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 process of learning to become a kite surfer.
If you are interested in educating yourself more on the theory of kitesurfing before you take your lessons, Progression is a good place to start!

When it comes to the quality of our kitesurfing lessons, we make sure all of our instructors are 100% motivated. We have found that the motivation of an instructor directly affects the learning curve of our students. For us the motivation of our students while on their lessons is top priority! Therefore,
Coastline implements scientifically proven, morale boosting activities into the monthly schedule for the Coastline team. You can be assured, that while completing your course with a Coastline instructor, they will not only give you their top winning performance, they will even ensure that you are up and riding by the end of your course!

It’s simple, Cape Town, South Africa is one of Africa’s most diverse adventure cities. 1 hour you are in the bustling city of Cape Town, the next hour you are touching noses with an African giraffe.

The famous wind in Cape Town.
In the summer months of November – April, when the sun pumps it’s solar energy across Southern Africa, 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! If you are interested in learning more on kitesurfing, Wikipedia , Virgin, Red Bull or our kitesurfing blog are great resources!
Getting Certified after your kitesurfing lessons.
