Questions About Cape Town

You might ask yourself, “What about crime? Are there wild animals roaming the streets? Will I find the right gear easily? How does Cape Town compare with other kiteboarding locations?”


Crime in Cape Town is more often than not petty theft. It can be easily avoided by concealing your valuables, not leaving valuables unattended and not leaving items lying about in your car while you’re in the water. Rather store valuables in the boot (trunk) of the car, or leave them at your accommodation.

Wild Animals:

Nope, unfortunately wild animals stopped roaming our streets about 300 years ago but check out these reserves when you need to satisfy the call of the wild.

  • You can find wild animals in free-roaming game reserves like this one here.
  • You can also visit Boulders Beach to spot the local colony of penguins.
  • There’s great shark diving (cage) for the brave with nerves of steel.


Finding gear is not a problem in Cape Town. Check out our retailers for awesome deals.

How Does Cape Town Compare?

The one thing that probably sets us apart from the rest of the world kiting and windsurfing destinations is the language barrier: there is none.

English is the official language of South Africa, so communication is fluid and easy. For more detail on how Cape Town compares with the rest of the world’s kiting destinations, click here.
