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.

I've always wanted to learn how to kite surf, and recently that bucketlist item was crossed off! While visiting Langebaan we found the perfect kiteboard instructor, Jani! After just 10 hours, we were basically up and ready to go! Thanks Jani, and thanks Cape Sports Center! Can't wait to see you guys in December again!

Wether your a windsurfer or kiter, you can't beat Langebaan for wind. I've been going there for 15 years and never beeb dissapinted. You need to be preared for light winds 10 knots force 3 or 4 and strong winds 30 to 40 knts and have the rit equipment. The cape spots centre has this and its all modern stuff,... More

For starters, the staff are so welcoming that you feel you're part of the family. There is a lot of choice as far as equipment goes, and access to the... More

I can WARMLY recommend to turn to Cape Sports Center for kite lessons with their instructor Jani. He is truly professional and great for beginner courses as well as for advanced lessons when you want to learn new trix. They also have a great restaurant with a stunning view!

My dad and I decided we wanted to learn to kite surf and had been recommended to Cape Sports Centre, and specifically Yani, to give it a go. It was my first time and I was particularly nervous but I felt completely comfortable with Yani as my instructor. He made sure to go through every safety precaution, didn't push us... More

Great place to hire windsurfing kit as it's right on the beach in the windsurfing zone. Second time I've been and the welcome not always the warmest. Panos, my instructor, just brilliant. Took me from being a nervous planer n water starter to a competent one in two hours, very quickly identifying my minor but important technique deficiencies. A couple... More
