Kiteboarding Travel Guide: Langebaan South Africa

Postby Toby » Thu Jun 13, 2019 9:09 am

When we think of South Africa, the images that typically come to mind are incredible wildlife roaming the grassy plains or the sparkling city of Cape Town. But only 90 minutes drive up the coast is a holiday haven with a beautiful blue lagoon.

In this edition of Destinations, we're visiting Langebaan, South Africa.

In South Africa's Western Cape, there are kite spots all along the coast. However, few locations bring the warm water and all level friendly conditions of Langebaan. This dreamy kite Destination is complete with a relaxed small town vibe along the lagoon beachfront. Langebaan is the perfect blend of kite trip and beach holiday. If you're looking for a family friendly location where you can still get in some epic sessions, Langebaan is the place to go.

That's pretty well done, not much to find fault with. Personally I find Langebaan boring now, just flat water, but 10 years ago it helped me get comfortable in Cape Town. I usually go up there for one or two days each season for a change of pace and to visit the West Coast National Park that the lagoon is part of. If I had a foil board in South Africa I imagine I would go more as foiling in Cape Town itself is for experts only, and I'm not that good yet.

Her Cape Town video from a month ago is also pretty good, although entirely focussed on Kite Beach and Bloubergstrand. There is so much more to kiting in Cape Town and the Western Cape, but perhaps the locals (I'm almost one) would prefer the hordes of visiting kiters not to know about all the other spots! Anyone who watches Kevin Langeree's videos will know about a few of them, however.
