Conditions:
This is Cape Towns kite spot in summer on a SW or Southerly with its wide open beaches and warm water. The SW is consistent and blows slightly onshore. Swells are generally small most of the time, but can pick up at times. You will find a lot of surfers in the water. Heads Up - When the SW blows, head for the Strand.
