botrivier ? flat inside ! bait outside!
Do the sharks go inside too?
I don't use windguru, but windfinder for table view you can add at least 5 knots onto the normal forecast when S to SE. And 10knots at sunset. SW and NW is generally accurate, and sometimes even less than predicted. Thursday and Friday Tview, Saturday is light everywhere. Strand might work it the temp drops and over 10knots S predicted. Sunday maybe try Melkbos in NW. Monday tableview again. I would not bother with Botriviervlei - low and muddy entry and needs decent SW. Brandvlei is brown, gusty and choppy.
Saturday does not really look kiteable without a foil, does it?
On Sunday, those 12 knots could work in Melkbos? I have been advised to not bring a 15 m, but I guess that is what would be required with this forecast?
Strand sounds sharky? I was thinking to only kite in sharkfree lagoons on the other side of the Cape.
I'm in CT on 15,16 Feb and hope to go kiting at Blouberg between 5pm and 9pm.
I packed my 6 and 11 on the weekend but will probably replace the 6 with my 17 and head up to Langebaan on Saturday.
I'll decide tomorrow evening..
Hi Rynhardt. I have a redeye flight to CT arriving midday friday, and I am hoping to go out friday evening. First time in CT, and I would probably go out in Sunset beach, where I am staying. Looks like it is going to nuke friday, but then be very light saturday and sunday. Is might not be worth it trying to kite those days. I am a little unsure of whether to pack a 15 m or not.
What lakes or lagoons in the area would you guys in general recommend when there is no wind in Table view? I looked at a video from Botrivier, and while the water didn't look nice, the creator described it as an epic session. Apparently he first tries the Palmiet lagoon in Kleinmond, which is supposed to be a great spot (?), but is dried out right now.
Would you guys say Breitvlei is not worth it, and I should rather do something else than go kite there?
Thanks again for all your help, it is very appreciated.
