    Hi Sebastien,

    good to hear you like the site.

    langebaan in december is very good. i really liked it there! about the direction. – look at the google maps to see how the wind is coming in. the wind is coming from S, SSE, sometimes SSW. So you could say it’s almost sideshore on the kitebeach, but after the launching area the beach/bay makes a turn to west, so after launching and you go downwind it feels like offshore. but at the kitebeach it’s basically sideshore.

    in langebaan you have a rescue boat. i think it belongs to some school. so speak to people around there how it works. they are not there all the time but most of. and in the evining if you decide to kite longer they probably are not there any more.

    i didn’t need a rescue, but i think they charge something per rescue as everywhere.

    in shark bay the water is not really deep so you will not really worry about rescureboats. it’s cool to practice as you can stand most of the time in the lagoon as far as you don’t go out verrry far. shark bay is absolutely beautiful. you will love it :)

    so, i hope this helps!
    :)

    Just a quick thanks for all the info. I used Car go and they were great. Fred picked me up from the airport at 12:30 am and took me to my hotel, where the car was in the parking lot!
    Kited Pointe Faula and for me, it was absolute heaven! One of the most beautiful places I have ever kited. Great big launch and no Kooks.
    I ended up buying a catamaran there and will be going back in March to pick it up.
    Counting the days …..

    Maybe I’ll take my Zephyr 17 and rent a kite if the wind picks up.
    Thanks again for all the help!

    i think you are OK with 14m and lightwind board. during our stay we had more light wind than strong wind. there where a few days i used 9, some days i used 12, but most of the days there was light wind. lot of people couldnt kite because they had small kites. i had an old 17 and that worked perfectly. so yes. if you have place for one kite and board, take 14 + lightwind :) have fun!
