Hermanus is the spot to be for flatwater and freestyle… and when you’ve got an awesome crew of kiters, you know it’s going to be a good time! In this episode of Wind Water Wild, Luke McGillewie takes us to Hermanus for a secret spot mission and a session in ‘The Pond’.

“Cape Town might be one of the most beautiful cities in the world… definitely one of the windiest. But this season has really been something else. To get a session in, you’re going to have to go the distance!”

When the wind’s not blowing at Cape Town’s Kite Beach in Blouberg, it’s time to start checking the forecast to see where it’s working. A flatwater session at ‘The Pond’ in Grotto Bay in Hermanus is always a treat, but when the wind is thumping? Everyone and their mom is on the water! They got a tip about a secret spot that was going to work, so it was time to get the local Liquid Force crew together…

After an epic flatwater session with friends and teammates at the secret spot, it was time to crack a couple beers, fire up the braai, and kick back at a holiday home in Hermanus. Nothing beats celebrating a great session with your friends… Except maybe a fun session at Grotto Bay! With butter flat water in The Pond and waves just across the sand, there’s more than a little bit of fun to be had. On the next episode of Wind Water Wild, they’re off to the West Coast National Park for sessions in the blue lagoon…
