My wife and I live and work in Johannesburg. We often fly down to Langebaan to spend a weekend there and love visiting Kitelab. We normally hire SUP's from the owner, Alan Steele. Alan and Shaun (the manager) are very accomodating and often offers to open the shop a little earlier for us so that we can do a sunrise SUP session on the lagoon. I have referred numerous friends to Kite lab for lessons whom are all raving about the quality and professionalism of the lessons. The store also retails a variety of gear and clothing. If you are keen to start kiteboarding or SUP'ing and looking for friendly, honest and reliable staff... look no further.

Spent a few weeks in and around Langebaan on the West Coast and wanted to learn how to kite surf. Kite Lab is located right on the main street, and I had seen their instructors along the main beach with the foil kites. They have instructors from beginners to very advanced, as the owner of the shop, Alan Steele, is an incredibly skilled professional. I spent my lessons at Shark Bay, which is around the corner from main beach, but they'll drive you over there with all of the equipment. I had a ton of fun, and definitely drank a lot of salt water...but they were really patient with me and I was able to get on the board by the end of my lessons! Overall, really happy and glad that I was able to try out my first water sport abroad!

They also have really cute clothes in the shop and sell big brands like Billabong and Hurley and way better prices than you will find in Cape Town.
