Cape Sports Center< < go back to Services Search
The Cape Sports Center is found on the shores of the huge Langebaan Lagoon. It is one hours 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 Kitesurfing for beginners through to advanced. 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.
The Cape Sports Center offers for rental the latest Fanatic / Tabou Windsurf boards and the latest Severne / Gaastra sails all rigged and ready for use. We also do lessons for Windsurfing & Kitesurfing and rentals of Gaastra & North Kitesurf boards, wetsuits and float vests. Stable BIC Sea Kayaks are also available for rental. New in the rental fleet are Surfboards, Bodyboards, Open BIC dingy and Mountain Bikes. An affiliated business based on the premises of the Cape Sports Center offers Hobie Cat lessons and rentals. The equipment is maintained in top condition throughout the season. Change rooms and warm showers are available after along day out on the water.
The Surf Shop has all the latest Quiksilver, Roxy, Fox, Rip Curl, Oxbow, and Oakley clothing and accessories. A little Sandwich Deli where one can get snacks and drinks is also situated on site.
Surrounding a 600m2 rental section, is grass to rigg on and also a place to sun bathe out of the wind for the family. There is a great look out platform where one can see a great deal of the lagoon and watch all the action from.
This perfect combination of wind, water and infrastructure has brought the German Surf Magazine to us to do their Mega Windsurf Test every year, since 1996 until now. They come with about 3 tons of all their wave and freeride equipment. The first week of each November all the manufacturers / designers of windsurf boards and sails meet here with the magazine staff to discuss and present their products for the coming season. All these guys are very approachable so it is a great chance for the public to come and meet them.
