Wave Kitesurfing Camp

Cape Town, South Africa

The world's wave kitesurfing capital

You want to enjoy wave kitesurfing around Cape Town / South Africa but you don't want to worry about arranging the transport from wave downwinders or to the various wave kitesurfing spots, which Cape Town has to offer?

Or you are a freeride kitesurfer and you want to learn wave kitesurfing? Maybe you have seen our Wave Kitesurfing Video Course and you would like to have coaching to the film KITEKAHUNAS - Learn Wave Kitesurfing?

And you want to rely on our local knowledge and instinct, when and where to find the best wind and the cleanest waves? - Instead of sitting on the beach and waiting for wind, or go to the wrong location and then miss the best conditions somewhere else?

Then the KITEKAHUNAS Wave Camp is right for you.

An unforgettable experience for one, two or three weeks of wave kitesurfing. Accommodation, guidance and transport back from downwinders included. So you get complete peace of mind. All our water sessions are guided by an experienced wave kitesurfer to inspire you. A package of four hours foundational lessons is included (safety briefing, also on the wave spots we visit, one hour of photo and video shooting for video feedback and for you to take home, one hour training with radio helmet on the water - details are below) and you can book more lessons during the Wave Camp.

The wave kitesurfing camp is suitable for

- Experienced wave kitesurfers, who do not want to spend time to plan and organise transport to wave spots or from downwinders in their holiday, but who simply want to enjoy their holiday with as much hassle-free and great wave kitesurfing as possible, with like-minded wave kitesurfers. Wave kitesurfers who don't want to sit and wait for wind (instead of visiting one of the hundreds of other attractions during the windless hours of their kitesurfing trip, which Cape Town has to offer), but rely on our instinct and local knowledge, where and when to find best wind and cleanest waves. Complete convenience. At least one experienced wave kitesurfer will always be on the wave camp to give you some inspiration on riding styles.

- Novice wave kitesurfers, who want to learn wave kitesurfing, initially possibly on your twintip kiteboard and then on a directional wave board. Progress is usually fast and after 2-5 days of lessons and training with our proven wave kitesurfing curriculum most people will feel absolutely comfortable on the directional wave board in Cape Town's famous waves. For wave novices we have developed a curriculum to teach wave kitesurfing on a downwinder within 10 days - from first steps to the thrill of riding the first wave with straps or strapless. After your four hours foundational lessons package (included in the Wave Camp), we recommend for for this 6-12h of further lessons. Lessons will increase your learning curve dramatically (details below).

You can also do freestyle / freeride kitesurfing every once in a while with your twin-tip board on the KITEKAHUNAS Wave Camp downwinders and/or take freestyle lessons. Or you want to be in the waves and your partner or friend, who does not want to be in the waves, wants to go on his/her twintip board? Details are here: Downwind Camp Freeride and Downwind Camp Freestyle

Why wave kitesurfing is becoming more and more popular

More and more kitesurfers switch over to wave kitesurfing. The reasons:

- First, wave kitesurfing results in much less injuries and is much softer on your bones and joints.

- Secondly, wave kitesurfing is even more fun than freeride or freestyle, and produces the feeling of being stoked and being full of adrenaline.

- Thirdly, the learning curve is much steeper than with freestyle kitesurfing and even wave beginners will feel comfortable after a few days in the waves. Prerequisites for beginners to start wave kitesurfing: You should be able to ride comfortably with your twintip board, toeside riding and maybe do small jumps.

 

Why wave kitesurfing is better on downwinders and why you PROGRESS much faster on downwinders

During the KITEKAHUNAS Wave Camps we preferrably go on downwinders. It is much easier to learn wave riding when going downwind and much more fun than riding at one wave spot, because you don’t have to ride upwind all the time. And if you stay at one spot you would need to be able to jibe, which is quite difficult to learn and it takes often a long time to practice. No jibing is necessary on downwinders, so you will have fun right away from day 1. Also on a downwinder you get much easier into a “flow experience”, as your wave riding is not constantly interrupted by having to ride back upwind. Further, on the wave downwinders we are able to find areas with few other kitesurfers, so that you can kite with lower risks, which crowded kitesurfing beaches unfortunately bring. Our downwinders are a luxury / premium-service.

Wave kitesurfing is much more fun on downwinders. Like skiing without having to walk back up the mountain. And thus, learning wave kitesurfing is much faster on downwinders. For downwinders you obviously need transport back and we organise and provide this for you.

We are blessed here with our world-class downwind passage from Sunset Beach till Doodles Beach or Haakgat or even longer. Shorter downwind passages are 5km, longer ones are up to 20km.

ACCOMMODATION

You can choose your accommodation. Either luxury guest houses directly on the beach (mostly in Sunset Beach, some rooms with Ocean View) or standard guest houses or hostels (mostly in Table View). Have a look here: Kitesurfing accommodations Cape Town.

DURATION

14 days of wave kitesurfing (on wind days). Or the short version: 7 days of wave kitesurfing (on wind days). Or the long version: 21 days. In Cape Town please expect 70-90% wind days (October-March) and sometimes we travel to find wind to increase this statistic.

ACTIVITIES

Wave kitesurfing, wave kitesurfing and wave kitesurfing on the best wave downwind passages and best wave spots of the world!

During your kitesurfing holiday in South Africa, on the few no-wind days of your wave camp, you have the opportunity to do a safari to view the "Big Five", you can try paragliding tandem flights, go wakeboarding, do a guided city tour in Cape Town, visit wine farms, or visit famous Cape Point and Cape of Good Hope. More information is here. These activities are not included in the Wave Camp price.

 

Lessons - if you want to progress fast

2 hours, 6 hours, 12 hours and 20 hours package of intensive Wave Kitesurfing Lessons to introduce you to wave kitesurfing, the directional wave board, or to improve your wave kitesurfing skills. You may want to do your lessons rather at the beginning of the Wave Camp and then from time to time for feedback. Lessons happen during the Wave Camp. You will get a radio helmet.

 

The KITEKAHUNAS WAVE CAMP includes

- Accommodation, if you book it, either in Table View or Sunset Beach (details please see below).

- A packacke of four hours foundational lessons is included: One hour of safety briefing, introduction to the wave spots we visit, and briefing on potential hazards during the downwinders. One hour of photo and video shooting, then video and photo feedback. All photos and videos are for you to take home. One hour training with radio helmet on the water (you select the topic with your instructor).

- Guidance and supervision from an experienced wave kitesurfer or wave kitesurfing instructor with local knowledge before, during and after all downwinders, so you will find more wind and better wind than without guidance, and the cleanest and best waves.

- Some form of additional safety on the water, somebody will be with you, if something goes wrong (but no guaranteed rescue service).

- And transfer from downwinders or to/from wave kitesurfing spots, which will give you peace of mind, and you will save the cost of renting two cars and hassles with thieves (long-distance travel is not included).
