Mountain biking, surfing, road cycling, kiting, triathlon, paragliding – the list goes on and Cape Town, South Africa has it all!
I was fortunate enough to spend a few days here on the way to a wedding and immediately fell in love with its vibrant atmosphere and stunning visual setting.
We spent a day hiking Table Mountain and another day at the beach (hoping to go kitesurfing!). Unfortunately, the wind gods weren’t on our side that day but we still enjoyed a fantastic day out in the sun.
Travelling light for the wedding meant I was without any of my usual gear (kites, bikes and boards) so finding gear did prove to be a bit of a challenge.
If you’re planning to head there any time soon – best bet for kite/surf gear is in Bloubergstrand which is about 15km North East of the city. Listed below are some of the stores we visited:
Best Kiteboarding Africa – http://www.m.bestkiteboardingafrica.com/
Surfstore Africa – http://surfstore.co.za/
Cabrinha Kiteboarding South Africa – http://cabrinha.co.za/
Cape Kites South Africa – http://www.capekites.co.za/
Watch this space however as we are in talks with several shops and gear owners to get their gear up soon!
