Kitespot Description

Wind Direction:SE, S, SW, NW

Best Months:
Nov - April

Conditions:
If you are in the area, you can get a lucky here with the SW.A rocky point forms a perfect left, but thses swells continue all the way along this coastline.Swells can get really big but winds can get gusty on a SE as the wind blows off the land. If you make your way further down the beach the wind becomes a lot cleaner.This is a perfect bay for a downwinder on a SE if you have someone to pick you up further down. The Toll road to Lamberts Bay runs parallel to the beach. This spot does not work on a NW as its off shore. The SW is directly onshore.

Pros & Cons:

Dont ride to close to the point where the surfers are.Car break-in are on the rise, so make sure all valuables are out of site when locking your car.There is a seal colony at the point so heads up if you out back line for any Great whites lurking around. The best part of this spot is to stop a a place called Muisbos Skerm Restaurant. This is a open sea fish restaurant, eat as much as you like seafood. Its well worth the stop here(20km outside Lamberts bay)
