KITESURFING CAPITAL OF THE WORLD
Welcome to South Africa, Zephyr Tours’ epic backdrop for intrepid exploration and your kitesurfing progression! Be inspired to push yourself to the limits while touring during the most extreme kite event on the planet and rubbing shoulders with the industry’s elite.
South Africa has got it all; epic coastline, colourful culture, abundant wildlife, fantastic weather, powerful wind, open beaches spanning for miles, rolling green valleys littered with wineries, and iconic mountains with breathtaking views.
Packed with adventure and culture, you’ll have the pleasure of experiencing everything South Africa has to offer while escaping the crowds and kiting waves, flat water lagoons and the strong winds.
Lead by our favourite South African kite instructor, Johnny Fassler, he will guide us to the best kitesurfing areas around Cape Town and beyond. Local knowledge is the key when travelling in South Africa, not only to stay safe, but to find the best kite spots and fun activities to do away from the crowds.
Designed to experience some of the Red Bull King of the Air tour, we have carefully chosen dates to coincide with this epic event.
RED BULL KING OF THE AIR
The Redbull King Of The Air (KOTA) event is renowned as the biggest kiteboarding competition on the planet! Extreme kitesurfers go as big as they can and throw down their craziest and most dangerous tricks just a few metres from the cheering crowd of spectators.
This competition is set in one of the worlds windiest towns in the most likely month for wind – February. With a 3-week window, the competitors start to gather in Cape Town and practice boosting until the forecast looks favourable and the day of competition is called.
The actual event may take anywhere from 1 to 3 days to decide a winner and watching these extreme athletes boost for their lives is one of the greatest spectator sports around today.
