Learn how to kite
With our team in Langebaan

WELCOME TO THE COLLECTIVE KITE SCHOOL.

The Kiteboarding Collective is more than just another kiteboarding school. We are a collective of passionate individuals dedicated to providing you with more than just another holiday.

With years of kiteboarding and hospitality management behind us, we have the experience and expertise to deliver excellence in all the services we provide.

 

Boat, Kite and SUP Touring

We want to show you how beautiful our little town is, and what better way to do that than a tour of the lagoon. Whether you want to go via boat, kite or SUP, we’ve got them all.

Quad Bike Taxiing

Due to our location, we have exclusive access to a path that takes you directly to the spot, park your car at our shop and we’ll take care of the rest.

Coffee and a View

Situated in the Boatyard of The Farmhouse Hotel, our school has an unobstructed view of Sharkbay and the lagoon in all its’ glory. Grab a coffee and enjoy the view while we get to know each other and plan your stay.

Wakeboarding

Right across from our local spot Sharkbay lies a beautiful, flat getaway called Kraalbaai. The buttery, glassy water and summer sun make this a Wakeboarding dream spot. No wind? No problem.

Second Hand Gear

More often than not after you’ve learned how to kite, you want to get your hands on some great gear at a great price. At the end of every season all our gear goes on sale, if that’s a bit too far away for your stay then we’re happy to assist you in finding the gear best suited to your needs.

Lightwind Kiteboarding

We’re bringing something new to Langebaan. With wind speeds sometimes being lighter, and wanting to push for those beautiful early mornings we’ve invested in a couple lightwind kites.

1

Theory and FIrst Piloting

This is where we start. An introduction to kiteboarding as an extreme sport, theory on wind, the wind window, safety and set up as well as first piloting on a trainer kite. From hereon we discuss launching and landing, the self rescue and universal beach signals. We then conclude by teaching you how to fly a Leading Edge Inflated Kite.

2

Advanced piloting and Body Dragging

The next step. We proceed to teach you the dynamics of power, bar pressure and steering the kite through the wind window to generate enough power to propel you forward. This is followed by assisted and unassisted body drags without the board.

3

Upwind Body Dragging, Boardriding and Beyond

The Final Step. once your kite skills have been tuned in you’ll have a better understanding on how to get going, from here we teach you direction. How to get back to where you started by going upwind and finally, getting you up and riding.
