Try, never mind how someone reacts.
If you have the arguments due to more knowledge you should always try.
If they really are that resistant to help...at least you tried.

Hi Hugh 2 we are planning 15 days kiting from jan 26.
two years ago was nearly impossible due to crowd.once I counted 30 windsurfers on queue for the wave at haakgat .
I do not think much has changed anyway how is this year?
ciao

Hi piccio, on a really good day you will still find crowds at Haakgat, sorry! And Kite and Dophin beaches, and Sunset and Big Bay. The secret is to ride inbetween these places, although avoiding the Mystic house area along Bloubergstrand is still a good idea as sometimes the guys riding there are a little arrogant. You will obviously be here for the KOTA, so that should be fun.
