The whole family came for two day beginner lessons- and it was an overall great experience! We were welcomed by the friendly staff and got suited up and headed out in no time. We went down to shark bay for the actual lessons, which was amazing- emerald waters, shallow sandy beach, and great wind. The two instructors, Jasmin and Andreas,... More

I had a bit of a mixed experience. I completed a 2-day beginner course at Kitelab. My instructor wasn't one of their regulars and was helping out for the weekend. I don't think he was a bad instructor, but I was not entirely happy with his work ethic. -He arrived late on the first day. -He forgot equipment more than... More

The proprietor really cares about helping you to a great kite surf experience. The instructor we had was amazing. We had to change a few times while we where there but it was positive as we got different input. The gear is top notch. Very cool and trendy, in a sporty sense. Would definitely come back.

"Learning Kitesurfing," is the reply my son gave to a friend who asked him what he most enjoyed on the year long holiday adventure we had around Southern Africa. That's quite a statement. My son had been keen to learn kite surfing for a while and we finally got the opportunity in Langebaan. Langebaan is one of the best places... More

Kite Lab offers lessons as well as selling all the gear from its shop. Cedric and George gave my wife nine hours of private lessons. By the end, she could stand up and ride in both directions around 200 metres. The instruction was excellent. Everyone in the shop was super friendly and helpful. My wife was a nervous beginner (I...

Great surf and kite shop right on the strip by main beach. Super knowledgeable staff who know their gear, the location and conditions like the back of their hand. Huge range of stock, very friendly instructors and great insider tips. They also have an amazing kite house available with beautiful comfy rooms and a great place to meet other surfers.

My teenage son went for a kite boarding lesson at Kite Lab while on holiday in Langebaan. The team at Kite Lab were professional, friendly and helpful. The instructor was professional and put safety first. My son had loads of fun and would highly recommend Kite Lab

Kite Lab in Langebaan were really good in communicating and sorting out the lessons I was after. On arrival Shaun was super helpful in finalizing arrangements in the shop. I did an advanced lesson to perfect staying upwind. Can highly recommend requesting Chris as an instructor. Over my time learning with various kite schools around the globe he's the best... More
