Langebaan South Africa - Windsufing & Kitesurfing.

A visit to the West Coast sea side is not a long trip from Porterville.

Take the scenic route through the Sanveld whose name comes from its sandy soil and is well known for supplying virtually all the Western Cape's potato requirements.

Along this part of the Atlantic coastline lies a series of quaint villages … Elands and Lamberts Bay, Paternoster, Saldanha and Langebaan to name a few.

Enjoy seafood fresh from the sea. Snoek, mussels, crayfish, prawns, oysters and “bokkoms”, a local delicacy of small salted fish strung up in bunches and left to dry.

Water sports including surfing, kitesurfing and windsurfing are very popular here.
