Thanx guys.One more stupid question:Google map shows at least three Leeupan - in Mpumalanga (next to Embalenhle and Secunda), in Benoni and next to Delareyville.Judging from windguru it should be one next to Embalenhle and Secunda. Is that correct?I'm getting confused with same names for different places. And I though Taiwan was bad with that :DWith Sterkfontein there also few places, but only one with the water. So it's easy. David, what is so special about Sterkfotein?
Thank you Lynn.
Sterkfontein Dam is half way to Durban and Durban looks like much better place.what sides of Vaal Dam and Leeupan (east, west, ...) are best for kiting? Also what are conditions for launching/landing the kite?
Hi Dima, Welcome to South Africa. Yes, Vaal Dam and Leeupan are the closest and a cool spot is Sterkfontein Dam-which is about three hours from Joeys, so it is good for a weekend and you can either camp or hire a chalet. I think a lot of us use Windguru (correct me if I am wrong) for our wind info. I can't remember what the best wind directions are for those three places....anyone?
Sorry for the link in my previous message. Didn't see pasting it and don't know how to remove it now
Hi Tim. We don't have any North kites but stock a full range of Ozone, RRD, Cabrinha, Airush, Slingshot, Peter Lynn. We also have a lot of used gear of different brands.
What are you looking to spend? We have full used kits from around R8000 - R15000. All new gear would be around R20000. Give us a call 031 568 2644.
BrucePS. Please be careful of buying VERY cheap gear online without researching what type of kite it is. There are a lot of cheap kites that are terrible for someone just starting out - and dangerous!
Thanks everybody! Will get gear sorted ASAP! If anybody wants to kite in the coming months, let me know! Tim

Sodwana and Cape Town are headlining the list of promising surf options this week.
It's all happening in Sodwana and surrounds this week, while the rest of the coast looks pretty average.
The sniff of winter is in the air as we experience a classic week of Autumn surf right across the country.
Sodwana fires Thursday - Sunday and Coffee Bay fires Wed while the rest of the coast takes a breather.
A solid swell that arrives Wednesday is going to turn on the wave machine big time for the southern part of the country.
