BKA has been running as a kite retail shop with associated school since 2003. The owners and management have been involved in the kiteboarding industry since the birth of commercial Kiteboarding in 1999, and are avid and experienced kiters and water-sports enthusiasts themselves.
We have a passion for the sport and therefore sell only products and watersports equipment that we are 100% confident in. Our focus is sell top quality and current products and to service our clients with prompt and efficient service, always following up on queries and providing excellent after-sales-service. We will continue this service on our e-commerce platform.
Our vision is also to bring together the kite, SUP and surf community in our local spots with such things as events, social gatherings, kite down-winders, product releases and much more. Our local spot, Kitebeach, is probably the most famous kiting beach in Cape Town and a hub for local and international kiters alike, and now also the home for the annual Red Bull King of the Air.
BKA shop is situated just across from Kitebeach, about 30 minutes north of central Cape Town. Our retail space has all our products on display, with stunning views of Table Mountain from our porch. We run our operation 12 months a year and 7 days a week throughout the summer windy months.
Currently we are the official SA distributor for Eleveight Kiteboarding, an official Airush Kiteboarding destination store and dealers for Starboard, Prolimit, Mystic Boarding and Dakine. We also sell a variety of surf/kite apparel and various other surf accessory name brands.
