kiteworld’s ‘how-to holiday’ hit list

Heading away on your first kiteboarding trip is a special time and a rite of passage. There’s the flurry of excitement as you thumb through back issues of the Travel Guide comparing wind stats, the excitement as you imagine what the conditions will be like, the discussions among friends about which destination will have the best après-kite scene and the endorphin rush as you put your faith in the wind gods and book your trip. We’ve compiled some tips and things to consider that might help as you plan your first kiting holiday! CHOOSING YOUR DESTINATION The main advantages with choosing to learn kitesurfing on a holiday are that the wind conditions are usually more favourable than home and, combined with you having taken the time off to dedicate to the cause, means…

langebaan south africa

ON THE WATER Langebaan is essentially flat water heaven! This huge, turquoise lagoon is set in the rugged terrain and dazzling natural beauty of the west coast with plenty of space, white-sand beaches and constant cross-shore winds during the season. This is one of South Africa’s top kite spots and it’s especially good if you’re not into waves and want to avoid the seemingly endless swells that Cape Town, 90 minutes south, can produce. A more beginner-friendly spot than Cape Town due to the lack of shorebreak, the two main spots in Langebaan are Shark Bay (Kleine Oostewal) and Main Beach. (There is another spot downwind of Main Beach, but the wind is offshore and therefore for advanced kiters only.) Shark Bay is 300 metres south of Langebaan village and ideal for…

cape town south africa

ON THE WATER Consistently playing host to some of the world’s best riders from October to March, Cape Town is also the home of the Red Bull King of the Air extreme big air contest. If you want to jump high, the wind is unbeatable and the area boasts 30+ kite spots, offering a huge variety of riding, from flat water to five or six metre waves. Also, unlike most good kite spots, you’re right on the edge of one of the world’s most vibrant cities, offering endless entertainment, from the stunning wine lands and the culture of the city, to the parks and wildlife centre visits with the kids. Most kiting is in the northern part of the Cape Peninsula and, depending on the day, you can find everything from flat…

le morne mauritius

ON THE WATER Uninterrupted southeast trade winds blow thousands of miles towards Mauritius from May to October, lighting up wave spots on the north, east and south coasts with incredible conditions. Le Morne is situated in the southeast corner and offers riding for all levels, with trade winds from the left and a wide expanse of flat water inside the protective reef 600 yards offshore. ‘Small reef’ is a fun right hand wave in front of the Indian Ocean Resort, breaking over a sandy bottom. ‘Manawa’, a kilometre off the beach, is best at high tide and tends to kick up bigger, more rolling waves than other breaks, but isn’t as fast or hollow as the infamous ‘One Eye’. Last year the cross-off conditions at One Eye provided epic conditions during the…
