Re: South Africa first timer

Howzit? Where is your shop? I guess Big Bay? In what direction would you recommend Kleinrivier lagoon or Botrivier lagoon? Is Brandvlei kitable?

Re: South Africa first timer

I'm in Langebaan full time until the end of March - feel free to contact me when you head out this way.

If you want to kite in Blouberg area speak to the locals at the kite shops and they will give you plenty of good advice. Dont underestimate the Cape winds!
