Safety while on your kitesurfing lessons.

kitesurfing lessons cape town

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, 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.

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!

 

Our kitesurfing instructors

We only employ experienced IKO level 2, IKO level 2 senior & IKO level 3 instructors.

We employ not only the most experienced IKO instructors onto our team, but also the most motivated kitesurfing instructors.

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!

Why kitesurfing lessons in Cape Town?

 kitesurfing Cape Town

Many who have travelled to Cape Town will tell you about how it feels being bitten by the Cape Town travel bug.

But why?

Well, where else in the world can you go hiking up one of the world’s most iconic mountains, and 3 hours later refresh yourself, by kitesurfing with Southern Right Whales?

Following?

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.

Also we have EPIC kitesurfing locations, like you couldn’t imagine.

Please note* All kite locations look way more incredible in real life. Contact me directly at kbrowning100@gmail.com if you’re interested in more information, on any other particular spots.

Take a look at some of our popular kitesurf locations.

The famous wind in Cape Town.

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!

If you are interested in learning more on kitesurfing, Wikipedia , Virgin & Red Bull are three great sources.

Getting Certified after your kitesurfing lessons.
