Kitesurfing in Durban

Durban is best known for its warm weather, sunshine, great waves and warm water all year round. Not only is Durban littered with great surfing spots, but there is also no shortage of awesome kitesurfing spots.

Durban has two prevailing wind directions. The North Easter which brings sunny and hot weather, and the South Wester which usually means cooler overcast or rainy weather with strong winds.

The NE wind usually blows cross onshore and works well anywhere along the coastline from Kitebeach (Ethekwini Country Club), through Umhlanga to Umdloti. Watch out for a strong side wash which often develops after a day or two of NE winds at Kitebeach. Downwind runs from Umhlanga or Umdloti to Kitebeach are highly recommended.

The SW wind direction blows offshore around the city, and tends to be rather gusty. Kiting at Kitebeach should be avoided on the SW wind. We recommend kitesurfing further north at La Lucia, Umhlanga or Umdloti. Downwinders from Kitebeach going north are fantastic for wave riding on a good day.

La Mercy lagoon just north of Umdloti is also a great alternative if you are looking for flat water kitesurfing or if you are learning. This spot works well for kiteboarding on both the SW and NE wind direction.
