Our Team

Here’s the crew. 

Established in 2017

Obsession Kiting was born from an absolute passion for the sport. Megan and Shannon du Plessis (sisters) soared their way into ownership in 2017 when they were 20 and 21 years old.

Obsession, our family-owned kite school and acclaimed IKO (International Kiteboarding Organization) Pro Center, offers more than just kiteboarding lessons—it provides an experience crafted by the dynamic couple, Shannon and Megan, along with their closely-knit family. With a foundation in their profound love for kiteboarding, Shannon, a seasoned expert, brings years of experience and contagious enthusiasm for the sport, while Megan, equally dedicated, manages the intricate details that transform Obsession into a home away from home.

Prioritizing a personalized and welcoming approach for every participant, Obsession ensures a unique and satisfying experience. Tailored guidance based on individual skill levels and a warm embrace as part of the Obsession family reflect the couple’s commitment to fostering a sense of camaraderie.

Situated by the enchanting Langebaan Lagoon, our school provides an ideal setting for sheltered kiteboarding. The serene flat water and meticulously designed safety features make it a top choice for both locals and international enthusiasts.

As an IKO Pro Center, Obsession upholds the highest standards in training, placing emphasis on safety, quality, and instructor certification. Whether you’re a seasoned kiteboarder or a novice, Obsession welcomes you to a world where expertise meets passion, and every kite-flying dream is achievable with the personal touch of Shannon, Megan, and their family.
