During peak season, from October to March Langebaan is blessed with strong steady winds and bright clear skies. Flat, uncrowded waters await travellers from cape town. A quick blast up the r27 north from the city ends with either a short trip through the small village of Langebaan or for a small fee you can take the shortcut through the national park and observe some of the friendly locals along the way, including tortoises and ostriches and some not so friendly including the fierce cape cobras that occasionally bathe on the baking tarmac that snakes its way through the park.
The Kitelab is right on Langebaans main beach which is only 10 minutes from the ominously named Sharks Bay. Fear not, none of the Great White variety can be found here, instead crystal blue, knee-deep waters, which stretch as far as the eye can see. It is an ideal training ground for kite surfers regardless of skill level or ability. This combination most definitely makes Langebaan one of the top kite surfing destinations in the world.
We proudly serve learners and enthusiasts with IKO kite skills training, kiting equipment, kite repairs, surf equipment and industry leading clothing and accessory brands
