SaltyCrax Backpackers South Africa Surf Camp Itinerary

Day 1

You are met at the airport and taken to the 5-star SaltyCrax Backpackers in Table View. The hostel is within walking distance from Kite Beach, transport terminals, restaurants, bars, and shops. On your early arrival, you can spend the day either on a tour through the Cape Town city center (optional extra) or simply relax on beautiful white beaches with picturesque views of Table Mountain.

In the evening, you will have a traditional South African BBQ, called a Braai, which gives you a chance to meet the others guests from around the world. After the good meal, roll down to the local bars and pubs where you can spend the rest of the night at your leisure.

Day 2

After breakfast, a qualified kitesurfing instructor from Wind Sports will meet you. He will take you to the world famous Kite Beach that has an amazing backdrop of Table Mountain and a steady supply of wind and waves. Your first day of lessons will begin with:

  • Lesson 1: Introduction to kiteboarding (including safety, equipment setup, understanding the wind, and land based flying)
  • Lesson 2: Water introduction (including large kite handling, self-launch, and hopefully body dragging through the water)
  • Lesson 3: Water skills (including advanced body dragging, water re-launch, and basic board skills)

You are taken back to the hostel after an exciting day of kiting. Relax around the fire while a potjie; a traditional South African stew, is cooked. The rest of the night is yours to discover the local nightlife.

Day 3

After a breakfast served in the dining room, you are taken back to the beach. Your final day of lessons include:

  • Lesson 4: Board basics (including first water starts on a board and first ride)
