Our Cape Town store is no different and we pour our heart and soul into our customer service and making sure our customers have the best possible time while out on the water.Roberto Ricci designs is an Italian Kitesurfing and Windsurfing brand that was started when Roberto Ricci, an energetic and passionate Italian from Tuscany, began hand shaping windsurfing boards in the mid-1980s. RRD has grown into producing kitesurfing, windsurfing, SUP, surfing, wetsuits and clothing. As the South African importer for the RRD brand we bring in their windsurfing and kiteboarding equipment, stand up paddle boards ( SUP ), wetsuits and some of their fashion items.

We offer both surfing and kitesurfing lessons in Cape Town from our store in Big Bay and travel up to Langebaan to teach our kiteboard riding lessons there.

We are one of the best and most knowledgeable kitesurfing centers in Cape Town and have a wealth of experience and brands on offer. We love chatting to our customers and friends and you can often find us exchanging our most recent war stories and victories from the kite session that just ended. Please do not hesitate to interrupt us if you need any help as we can get quite carried away sometimes.

We are open 7 days a week in both summer and winter. So come on in and have a chat to us and find out how we can get you out on the water.
