Kitesurf Spot - Tableview
Long beaches (for a few km), plenty of kites out. You can see Table Mountain about 20km away, and Robben Island (Nelson Mandela's prison) a few km out to sea. Amazing sunsets over that island. For equipment/lessons, check out the kite shops in Tableview on the beachfront. the swell comes in from the Atlantic, can range from 1 - 10ft. Relatively deep water, waves are reasonably slow, make for good lauching. Water is FREEZING cold when the SE has been blowing for a few days. The outside air temp can be mid 20-30s C, and the water well below 10C
