Yes, you can walk upwind 100 yards and launch there, and ride upwind to join the fun. But what's really nice is downwinders from Sunset to Haakgat, and since you have a wife and a car, its perfect. No problem doing it yourself, I do it regularly (and catch the bus back). Don't hurry and enjoy the regions between the crowds. Don't tell anyone else, but if the waves are good, don't stick around Big Bay, the stretch north of Big Bay is the sweetest, with completely different wave dynamics to the Blouberg section which has long lines of waves rolling in, and of course Haakgat has peeling waves if you are good enough for that in strong conditions, dodging the windsurfers. If you see others setting up at Sunset, especially strapless, ask if they want to join you on a downwinder and you might get some company, but don't depend on it. Langebaan only worthwhile if you want a flat water session, seldom blows harder than Bloubergstrand. Witsand can be hectic and fun, work upwind a little and don't worry about the rocks, you can easily get back out again. Just short of Cape Point are bays on either side of the peninsula within the national park, so pay attention to Windalert, sometimes these beaches work when nowhere else does, being so far south. If you are only there for a week, that's about it, except of course you have to hike up Table Mountain one morning - if you are fit and capable, the best hike is called India-Venster - research it and join up with others along the way if unsure of the route (which winds from the north-facing to the west-facing aspects) - not rock climbing, just a little scrambly in parts, but spectacular views all the way. If your knees don't like descents, come down in the cable car (after walking around on top for an hour). Enjoy! I hope you get strong SEaster. I will be there just after you in late November for three months, yeah!
