We’re passionate, we’re skilled, and we do what we love – what more could you ask for?
We’re Dimitri and Michelle, the proud owners of WindChasers Guest House and Kiteboarding School in Langebaan.
We left the hustle and bustle of the city to settle in the peaceful little village of Langebaan, just an hour outside of Cape Town. An old Cape cottage was renovated and converted into ample and comfortable accommodation in 2004 and in 2005 we opened WindChasers Kitesurfing School. WindChasers has gone from strength to strength and is often regarded as the best place to take lessons within the Cape, that combined with good, clean and affordable accommodation has been our secret to success. Langebaan has been a perfect place to both live and work offering both a fantastic climate (sun and wind) and active lifestyle.
Both of us have a strong hospitality background and Dimitri is a kiteboarding fanatic – he started by kiting for personal enjoyment and soon followed that by completing his instructors IKO certificate (International Kiteboarding Organisation). Dimitri takes pride in employing only the best instructors in an effort to both teach and equip students with both the knowledge and skill to be self-sufficient kiteboarders in the safest possible way.
We look forward to our upcoming season and to meeting all the new people who pass through our doors, we hope that you’re one of them! Every person who walks through our door is important to us, we have a hands on, involved and personalized approach which has served us well in ensuring guest and student satisfaction.
