The Cape Sports Center is found on the shores of the huge Langebaan Lagoon. It is one hours drive north of Cape Town on the West Coast of South Africa. The center was established in 1993. Those more than 20 years of expertise show in our well organised establishment as well as in the quality of service we offer.
The turquoise blue water of the 20km long X 1,5km wide lagoon offers exceptional flat water Windsurfing and also magnificent Kite surfing for beginners through to advanced. The wind direction in summer is side shore and the wind statistics show that from October to March we have 20 – 25 days wind over 20 knots per month. From November through to February one can expect some days of up to 35 knots. In the early mornings is the best time to rent a stable Sea Kayak and venture into the lagoon to see all the birds, seals, penguins and sea life around you.
The Cape Sports Center offers for rental the latest Tabou Windsurf boards and the latest Gaastra and Vandal sails all rigged and ready for use. We also do lessons for Windsurfing & Kitesurfing and rentals of Kite surfing equipment, wetsuits and float vests.
In addition we have Surfboards, Body boards & Stand up Paddle boards for rental. The equipment is maintained in top condition throughout the season. Change rooms and warm showers are available.

Surrounding a 600m2 rental section, is grass to rigg on and also a place to sun bathe out of the wind for the family. There is a great look out platform / bar where one can see a great deal of the lagoon and watch all the action from.

The Lagoon is ideal to test their freeride freeride equipment. The Sports Center offers a family friendly place to enjoy the watersports as well as the comfort of a well established infrastructure such as bathrooms, shower, Change rooms, Shop and Bar.
