Kitesurfing Downwind Camp Freestyle

Cape Town, South Africa

Big Air tricks for Intermediate & Advanced Kitesurfers

Are you a freestyle kitesurfer and you want to improve your skills and learn new tricks, in particular big air jumps? Would you rather go downwind, so that you don't have to waste your energy riding upwind after each trick, in particular big air jumps, but rather concentrate on improving your skills? Would you like to use Cape Town´s waves as kickers for your new tricks or for big air jumps? Would you like to go kitesurfing with your partner or friend, who is participating in the KITEKAHUNAS Wave Camp?

Then the KITEKAHUNAS Downwind Camp Freestyle is right for you!

And do you want to rely on our local knowledge and instinct, of course, when the wind is best and where to find the best conditions - instead of sitting on the beach and waiting for wind, or go to the wrong location and then miss the best conditions somewhere else?

An unforgettable experience for one, two or three weeks of freestyle kitesurfing. Kitesurfing sessions on downwinders along Cape Towns most beautiful coast line, away from crowded kite beaches. Accommodation and transport back from downwinders included. So you get complete peace of mind. All our water sessions are guided by an experienced kitesurfing instructor to inspire you. A package of two hours foundational lessons is included (lessons package on safety when kitesurfing, and a briefing on the kitesurfing spots we visit). Our Camps further include constant coaching and video feedback, also photos and videos about yourself for you to take home. Further, you can book private lessons during the Camp.

The DOWNWIND kitesurfing camp is suitable for

all intermediate and advanced kitesurfers who can ride upwind, who can jump, and possibly can do jumped transitions and rotation jumps, and who want to have fun with Cape Town's kickers and strong wind to improve their freestyle kitesurfing, and add big air tricks. It is suitable for all kitesurfers who do not want to sit and spend time to plan and organize transport from downwinders in their holidays, but who simply want to enjoy their holiday with as much hassle-free and great freestyle kitesurfing as possible. Complete convenience. At least one experienced kitesurfer will always be on the Downwind Camp to give you some inspiration on your riding style.

You as an intermediate or advanced kitesurfer will be able to practice new tricks along the beautiful coast line of Cape Town while going downwind. Ride behind the shorebreak zone and practice your tricks and enjoy the flatwater or stay in the shorebreak and use Cape Towns wave kickers to do big airs just as the guys from the RedBull Kind of the Air contest. Of course, you will also be able to ride some waves with your twintip if you feel comfortable.

The Downwind Camp will be perfect for you as a intermediate or advanced kitesurfer. The Camp will assure you many hours of pure water time and practise without having to worry about riding upwind.

Freestyle/FreerideZone

Lessons are available during the Downwind Camps with our experienced intructors. Take lessons in our different course levels, as for example on course level C, learning to jump, course D rotation jumps and jumped transitions, or F/G advanced and unhooked tricks.

Lessons will be taught during the downwinders with helmets and radios.

If your partner or friend wants to be in the waves, and wants to do a Wave Camp with us, you can do the Downwind Camp Freestyle and you will be most of the time together on the same downwinder.

 

Why FREERIDE kitesurfing is better on downwinders and why you learn new tricks much faster on downwinders

During the KITEKAHUNAS Freeride Downwind Camps we preferrably go on downwinders. Freestyle kitesurfing on downwinders is much more fun than staying on one spot for a couple of reasons. You can concentrate on improving your kitesurfing, so for instance concentrate on learning big air tricks. While you are doing this you will go quite a bit downwind, with every trick. If you stay on one spot, you will have to spend most of the time, 55 minutes out of 1 hour, with riding upwind, instead of spending your time on what you actually want to learn. If you are on a downwinder, you can concentrate 60 minutes out of 1 hour on practicing your new trick, without worrying about riding back upwind all the time. So the learning curve is much faster on a downwinder

Going downwind will also lead you to different spots with varying scenaries and views, away from crowded beaches with hundreds of kitesurfers. So it is much safer when practicing new tricks "away from the traffic and crowded kite beaches". Furthermore, there is no need for big kites if you are going downwind, your small kite will already have enough power. So freeride kitesurfing is much more fun. Like skiing without having to walk back up the mountain all the time. To be able to do downwinders, you obviously need transport back by car or minibus, and we organize and provide this for you.

We are blessed here with our world-class downwind passage from Sunset Beach till Doodles Beach or Haakgat or even longer. Shorter downwind passages are 6km, longer ones are up to 20km.
