Brad Symington of Downwindshuttle.com recently upgraded the service he provides to the kiteboarders who wish to do downwinders on this magnificent 17km stretch of beachfront in South Africa.
So far, we have made use of Brad's service this entire summer getting lifts from Doodles to Sunset Beach almost every day, and its been a pleasure. He offers the riders drinks, an opportunity to play on one of his 4 Sony Playstation Portable systems, cool tunes to listen to and the chance to meet and chat to fellow kiteboarders - an opportunity you dont often have otherwise.
This service is perfect for anyone who wishes to save you time and not leave your car on a selected location, or for beginners who cant maintain upwind yet. Its also a safe way to get back to your destination if you dont wish to hitch a ride alone.
Rides cost 30ZAR a pop and or the tokens can be bought upfront or paid to Brad direct when you take the ride. All you need to do is contact Brad on his mobile 082 297 1566 and he or his driver Natalie will fetch you at the given time of your choice and where you wish to be collected from or taken to.
