Laurent and the other instructors were really helpful. They accommodated our schedule and let us know when the conditions were good. They picked the times that would be best for us to make progress, rather than just going out in frustrating conditions. They also provided excellent advice for our search for our own gear...

Had a very good experience with Coastline Kitesurfing! The atmosphere was good from the beginning, and the crew was very welcoming. Students and instructors got along from the first second, and we all enjoyed the five day course. The instructors were patient with every "student", which gave people the space to try and fail...

I would definitely recommend them. Had a great time learning everything and the instructors were always friendly and patient. I also loved that with my last class instructor Heinrich didn't push me do something I was not 100% comfortable yet. Safety first! But overall it was a great experience and I totally regret not doing it earlier

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!

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!
