We have put a list of reputable kitesurfing shops in South Africa together for anyone who is thinking of getting into kitesurfing, and isn’t sure where to start. These shops will advise you on what equipment you will need for the prevailing wind conditions in your area, and they will set you up with lessons to get you going safely. Most shops stock a limited number of kitesurfing brands, so don’t be shy to shop around until you find a shop / brand that you love and that fits your requirements.
This directory is a work in progress, so if we haven’t listed any shops in your area, please let us know, and we will advise you on the best choices and add it to the list. If you have a kiteboarding shop and feel it should be listed, please contact us with your details so we can consider adding you to this directory.
