Kitesurfing, kiteboarding shop & school. Lessons - Durban, PE, J-Bay, Cape Town
Driving up to the Amatikulu Lagoon from Durban is a really quick easy drive, only 70km North of Ballito. The lagoon is a great flat water spot for Kiteboarding in KZN and the surrounding scenery is magnificent.
A few of us managed to get off work early and arrived on Friday afternoon, but the weather was not that great with a light rain for most of the afternoon and into the early evening. Wind Guru predicted rain and not much wind for the weekend, but we had an absolute blast. The Hatchery was our choice for accommodation, I can honestly say that every cent spent at the Hatchery is worth it and if you are planning a trip up to the Amatikulu Lagoon make sure you book into the Hatchery, you will not be disappointed.
Saturday morning brought sunshine and no rain, and a max of about 7kts. As we were all very eager to get going we decided to haul out Stevo’s winch and do some winching. The winch is an awesome machine for those no wind days, it gets you on the water and is heaps of fun. (The interest around the Winch is amazing and it will soon be available to purchase through the Kitesports website.)
After enjoying an afternoon braai and more winching we retreated to the Hatchery for some lazy sundowners and an evening braai.
