I've made it! After three years, I was able to return to Cape Town, South Africa for a windsurfing and sightseeing holiday in the Western Cape!


Windsurfing, report: Cape Town, South Africa, february 2023


It was enough for me to disembark from the airplane, find myself under the bright blue sky of Cape Town, breathe the clear air of the Western Cape, put on my sandals and walk again on Sunset beach in the late afternoon, to rediscover wonderful emotions....

But there wasn't too much time to be enchanted, because already the day after my arrival, I immediately jumped into action, in the water.


Sunset beach, 5 february

Sunset is a spot you need to trust, because it often delivers. Today, ECMWF gave almost no wind at Sunset, and I went to explore Cape Columbine, with the idea of trying, then, to ride at Paternoster.... where I understood that you have to go only with forecast of strong winds, and a decent swell (today, it was flat).

Sunset, on the other hand, easily offers some waves, at least a windswell beach break, especially at high tide. And if they give 15-20 knots, it means that maybe I will be overpowered with the 4.2...., as happened

Enjoy also the playlist with videos of our sessions.
