Each year iKiteboarding.com goes to Witsands which is situated about 4 hours drive from Cape Town.
Wind is generally onshore on the ocean in a south east but on the lagoon it is offshore and very steady, producing the flattest water imaginable. On the low tide the sand banks are more exposed which produces some sick grinding opportunities. Witsands is perfect for executing the latest in wake style and freestyle tricks and it is also the training grounds for many speed sailors.
If you do tire of the flat water after a while you can tack out of the bay and into the ocean where there's some small waves to play in.
This year iKiteboarding.com headed up there again and the crew included Matthias Larsen, Alex Aitkenhead, Carlo, and Andrew / Jessica from Xelerator.
Matthias was pimpimg the latest Turbo Diesel from Slingshot and proved that the bow kites can hold up to the latest in unhooked wake style tricks.
