Wolf Reiners Kitesurfing in Cape Town

Meet Wolf

Full Name: Dr. Wolfram Reiners
Nationality: German
Sport Director Kitekahunas
German Speed Kitesurfing Champ

When did you start your kitesurfing career?

Kiteboarding I started professionally in 2007 and I absolutely love it. I am proud of my German Speed Kitesurfing record which is at the same time the Outright Speed Sailing Record for Germany - the record of all classes and sails. I grew up at the northern boarder of the Alps and as a kid and teen I have been skiing every day for half of the year - and now I do the similar thing on the water. At Kitekahunas I concentrate on our teaching methodology, the sports psychology side of teaching kitesurfing in Cape Town, and students and instructors can share in my experience as a speed kitesurfing champ.

Explain your favourite kitesurfing trick

Very high jumps with board grabs. Raileys. Unhooked rotation jumps.

Explain the kitesurfing trick you are working on now

S-Bend and other unhooked tricks and carving waves.

What is your favourite kitesurfing spot?

My absolute favourite kitesurfing spot is Sunset Beach, Cape Town. Not because it is directly on our doorstep of Kitekahunas, but because it has the best wind in Cape Town - and with this it is therefore the best wind in the world from October till April, but also the most constant and clean waves and flat water in between.

What are the other sports/hobbies you practise next to kitesurfing?

There are very few sports that I have not done in my life. I enjoyed most mountain hiking, scuba diving and skiing, but now kiteboarding is the definite crown.
