Cape Town – The Big Air Capital

After the success of the previous season, I’m super excited to be hosting some new Big Air Kite Clinics in Cape Town, South Africa! It’s my home town and the best place for Big Air kiteboarding in the world. The WOO world record was set here multiple times and the Redbull KOTA is hosted here for years now, just saying. The strong winds (often 30 knots+), in combination with its many different spots, make it progression heaven. You can find the most amazing flat water spots, do incredible downwinders during the golden hour and boost of massive waves. Besides the premium kiting opportunities, the city offers plenty of other outdoor activities, amazing food options, and a vibrant nightlife. The best location for big air kite clinics!

Insane progression guaranteed 

During the 8 days of this kite camp, you will get excellent coaching using a cutting edge training program. I want to make sure that you will get plenty of personal attention. Therefore, I coach in groups of maximum 4 and I always bring my coaching assistant. The things you’ll learn in this kite camp are valuable throughout your entire big air kiting career. We will set out clear goals, go through theory lessons and have intensive video analysis sessions. Furthermore, we’ll discuss subjects like how to prevent injuries and maintain physical health. I’ve found that the right combination of these results in insane kitesurfing progression. 

The local big air kite scene 

The average level of kitesurfing in town during the season is insanely high. Adrenaline addicts from all over the world gather in Bloubergstrand every year. Most of them are coming for years in a row. As a local, I have deep roots in this kitesurfing scene. So expect to be immersed in the most extreme community of kitesurfers on the planet. Don’t underestimate the value of this. Being surrounded by other ambitious kitesurfers is fundamental for fast progression! Next to that, chances are you’ll make lifelong friendships with other kiters during this kite camp, including me.

What your level should be 

The big air kite clinics are for all kiteboarders that can ride upwind in big waves and can rescue their board when it’s upwind. Whether you’re trying to do your first jumps, backrolls or want to try kiteloops or even megaloops. I will get you there!

    positive review  I started of with a real average base when I came to Mike, he perfected my backroll, frontroll and boosting techniques in a matter of a day. His theory class covers everything in exceptional detail so if you hit the water for a session you can execute what you learned in a flawless fashion.When doing yoga and calisthenics sessions with Mike, he explains why it is important to stretch and exercise each muscle for kitesurfing and what the benefits of each exercise is.12/10 would recommend Mike if you are a rider looking to advance your skills, progress real quick and is looking to get the most wicked experience out of each session. Best of all I made an awesome mate in the process 🤙.
