Overview
More
The Cape Sports Center was established in 1993 and is found on the shores of the huge Langebaan Lagoon. It is one hour drive north of Cape Town on the West Coast of South Africa. The turquoise blue water of the 20km long X 1,5km wide lagoon offers exceptional flat water Windsurfing and also magnificent Kite Surfing for beginners through to advanced. We offer lessons with the principle "safety first". All our instructors are qualified. The wind direction in summer is side shore and the wind statistics show that from October to March we have 20 - 25 days wind over 20 knots per month. From November through to February one can expect some days of up to 35 knots. In the early mornings it is amazing to rent a stable Sea Kayak from us and venture into the lagoon to see all the birds, seals, penguins and sea life around you. Part of the Sports Center is a well stocked Surf Shop and the Karma Bar.
