Langebaan Shark Bay


Kitesurfing spot information

Important: Since 2011 access to Shark Bay is problematic. Some people have built houses there and restrict the access to the beach. The police is fining people who park on the road close to Shark Bay, and who walk 20min to the beach.

Otherwise, it used to be a fantastic spot to learn kitesurfing with large open areas and mostly waist deep water. The water is warm in the summer and always very clear. Shark Bay (not called Shark Bay because of any dangerous sharks) is the perfect locations for all water based beginner lessons and flat water riders.

How to get there and rigging areas

ATTENTION: Apparently access to Shark Bay is now blocked due to property development. We will communicate details shortly here.

From Big Bay Bloubergstrand, drive north (with the sea on your left). At the intersection with the R27, turn left, drive to Velddrif. Follow this road for about 60 km, until you reach the Langebaan turn off at the Caltex Garage. Turn left here, and follow the road in to the town. At the main intersection continue straight and towards the end of town you have to turn left. After 500m turn right at the stop sign. There is parking along the dirt road. Rigging on the grass next to the lagoon. There is not much beach along the banks of the lagoon.
