Earth. Wind. Water…Kite
Obsession Kite Boarding School Langebaan was born from an absolute passion for the sport, Megan and Shannon du Plessis (sisters) soared their way into ownership during the year of 2017. Obsession is currently the only female owned kite school in Langebaan, and even in the Western Cape itself.
As a family owned kite school, creating that sense of comfort is at the forefront, as all potential kiters are treated with care and patience tailored specifically to their level of skills. Young and old clients (oldest being 82) are all welcome here at Obsession.
Langebaan Lagoon itself makes for the perfect back drop coupled with the most ideal conditions for a sheltered kite boarding experience. The idyllic flat water and safety features make the lagoon a top choice among locals and foreigners alike. Should there be an issue of too much wind on the main beach, not to worry, Shark Bay is less than 10 minutes away with shallow waters and limited winds.

Why Obsession Kiting?
Here are a view of the reviews from Tripadvisor.
I had some private jumping lessons (7h) with Megan and I can highly recommend it for everybody, who is currently working on his/her first jumps. It was a lot of fun and I learned a lot! Megan showed me the techniques for a sufficient pop, measures to increase jump hight, back roll, back roll transition, jump transition and front roll. I could even use a Woo to measure my hight: 2.90m instead of approx. 1m after the second lesson. I need some more practice to continuously nail the landing of those tricks, but I know what to do and I know what I usually do wrong, when I fail a proper landing. Great experience!!! 🙂

Since this season, Obsession Kitesurfing is also offering Boat lessons – especially for non-windy days. No matter if you want to learn how to kite or to foil, a lesson behind the boat just to focus on board control & waterstarts enhances the learning experience.
Especially if you want to learn how to foil, a couple of boat sessions with a short mast make it so much easier to activate the foil and progress later with a kite.
Obsession offers professional service, has skilled instructors and makes safety your and everyones priority. I had a lot of fun with the instructors, boat stuff and found a new passion that I do not want to miss any more (I am still missing my foil in their shop :-))
Finally, prices a fair and they a re always keen to find the best solution for everyone.
So: jump on a plane (after Corona), go to Langebaan and this is the place to be.
Thank you so much for all the help and fun – we’ll be back next year.
