The South African coastline offers an abundance of fantastic stretches of water, clean fine sand and plenty of wind. With a rich history, pearly white beaches, charming fishing villages, colourful floral reserves and numerous adventure activities.
South Africa is also a paradise for anyone interested in natural history. A wide range of species (some potentially dangerous) may be encountered in parks, farms, private reserves and even on the roads.

With consistently strong and reliable wind conditions, this South African destination is perfect for wing foilers, from flat water improvers to advanced wave riders. When most people think of Cape Town, they assume only big waves suitable for the advanced.
