The most adventurous 8 days of the Wave Kitesurfing Safari are starting now. We will be travelling along the beautiful East Coast and kite several of South Africa's best breaks ranging from beach breaks to reef and point breaks to take your wave riding to the next level.
In order to bring you the best of the East Coast of South Africa, we have set up 4 base camps that are within range of the best riding spots. These spots can vary, depending on the precise wind and swell conditions on the day.
Witsands Lagoon - 1 day
This is a remote spot that is at least a half an hour drive off the highway down to the coast. Exposed to plenty of wind, but protected by a sandbar that runs at a right angle to the prevailing south east winds.
This is the perfect place to optimize your techniques for a hard carving bottom turn on super-smooth flat water, which is the key to tapping into becoming a solid wave-rider or intensify your riding style by going harder and faster. Here you can also practice how to position and move the kite while wave-riding, so that this becomes automatic and not a distraction when you are riding waves.
Sedgefield, Pilipili - 1 night 1 day
Smooth inside beach break on location. This spot picks up plenty of swell and when it is flat everywhere else, there is normally still a reasonably good wave to ride here.
The east wind is the best for riding the beach break in front of Pilipili, but there are also great downwinders with wind from either the east or the west.
World class downwinders on the garden route coastline - not much to say about these other than: if you get it good, you shall understand...
At Bloukrans River Bridge, with a height of 216 metres and a 7 second free fall, the Bloukrans Bungy is the highest commercially operated bungee jump in the world.
Cape St Francis & Jeffreys Bay (Paradise Lagoon) & Gamtoos Lagoon - 1 night 1 day
Peeling point breaks, lagoon spots, plenty of wind from both sides. The east winds are a little more onshore and the west winds more offshore in this area. This makes the lagoons plenty of fun in the onshore winds, but also means that you get cross-offshore winds and smooth peeling breaks in the west winds for some great park and ride opportunities, down the line riding in world class surf breaks.
Jeffreys Bay has become a vibrant, happening town in season.
Shamwari Private Game Reserve is home to Africa's Big 5 (elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion and leopard), is malaria free and is situated in the Eastern Cape of South Africa.
Cannon rocks / Kenton-on-Sea - 4 nights
This place gets even more consistent wind than Cape Town! Point breaks, downwinders and loads of various world-class spots to ride within a 30km stretch of curved bays with lagoons. There are several curved bays with point breaks running off the end of each bay. This area is very exposed and picks up plenty of wind from both sides. There are many different beach and wind angles, so traveling around within this strip of about 30km can be useful to ensure riding the best happening spot on the day. This area is remote, unspoiled nature!
At Cannon Rocks, there are a series of sandbars, which means when the swell gets large, you can still ride the inside break at 4 ft with a mid break double that size and an outside break double that size!
There are several spots along the way to keep an eye on, where the wind provides us with perfect conditions to get some last sessions of the Wave Kitesurfing Safari!
There is a short stop at Noetzie beach near Knysna where we can see some beautiful castles on the beach. Unfortunately no kiting here, just a cool, chilled spot that is absolutely worth checking out!
On the way back we stay over for a last night in Sedgefield again, in order to check the conditions and see where to ride on the next day before arriving back in Cape Town!
Don't miss out on the best kite-adventure of the year!
Please notice that this is a not a beginner course. Before booking this course you should be at a hooked-in intermediate kite control level, and you should be able to perform basic jumps (as taught in our advanced course C - learning to jump).
Your rider level will be assessed at the beginning of the course. It is in your own best interest to assign yourself to the correct course at the correct level.
