Kiteboarding in South Africa can get pretty crazy – and not always in the best ways! When the crowds and conditions at Blouberg’s Kite Beach get to be too much, it’s time for another escape. In this episode of Wind Water Wild, Liquid Force’s Luke McGillewie and his crew head into the wild West Coast National Park to kite the blue lagoon of Langebaan.
“We go to Langebaan to chill out, have some fun, and try new things. Not every session has to be a serious one. We always leave the water laughing!” says Luke.
The warm, clear water of Langebaan’s lagoons make for ideal conditions for a kitesurfing escape with friends. Kicking back on the beach, goofing around in the water, and pushing each other to progress. Not to mention the incredible wildlife nearby. Driving to this spot always feels like a bit of a safari!
In Langebaan, you can ride all day long if you have the right gear. On this day, they spent the morning riding freestyle, the afternoon lull on the foil, and a sunset session hitting the waves. As always, the day ends with beers and a braai! After an epic weekend in Langebaan, it’s time to head back to Cape Town for a crazy downwinder with the crew… After all, that’s what kiteboarding in South Africa is all about! Stay tuned for the last and final episode of Wind Water Wild.
