Spot guidance

The advantage of staying in Hermanus is that we can find wind almost every day. With its very central location we can travel up the east coast (Warm water) or West coast (Cold). Some of the spots will include Struisbaai, a warm water super fun freestyle spot with small kickers and waves on the point for strapless wave riders. Also fantastic foiling spot. We also have two beautiful lagoons in Hermanus for flat water options as well as some decent wave riding. We will travel to the Strand, also a warm water spot, excellent for freestyle with small kickers and some fun waves out back. We will also travel to Blouberg, home of the King of the air. There are some exceptional spots in this area with really strong wind and some great wave spots.Conditions permitted we will also cover other spots like Witsand, Kommetjie, Betties Bay and a couple others. For the male twin-tip riders we would suggest a 9m and possibly a 12m. Female Twin tip riders 9m and 7m. A 3/2 Suit is more than adequate but if you really suffer with cold a 4/3 would be fine.

The Destination

The area is perfectly ready for tourism. There are many activities available for the non riders. There are many different spots to kite that hardly have anyone on the water. In November we kite with the whales, who usually are still around with their calves. Gaansbaai is a short drive away and where you can experience Shark diving or Whale watching. There are some really beautiful nature reserves with spectacular hikes or trail running. There are many restaurants and cultural stops in the area. Incase by chance you need an off day from kiting, experience a wine tour on the "hop on, hop off" wine bus or take a fat bike for a long scenic beach ride along grotto beach.

The Experience

Wake-up and head for a quick walk along the Hermanus Cliff path, you will be astounded by the scenery, both mountain and ocean. Expect to encounter Whales, literally only a stone throw away. After a buffet breakfast we will collect you in our 4x4 bus and head to the best spot on the day, based on weather conditions and what type of kiting you'd like to do. We have complimentary wifi and charging points available in the vehicle. We suggest having a big breakfast and then snacks for lunch, so that you can spend more time on the water. Depending where we are on the day, we can either have a late lunch or dinner at some really good restaurants on the way home or in Hermanus. For those that don't kite there are so many other activities to choose from, including Shark diving, Whale watching, Fat bike tours, wine tours, zip-lining, Yacht cruising and hiking.
