Excellent student and basic site. Car park or dunes good for take off.
Works when Holiday Inns to strong. Works between 26 to 30kph. At 25kph good place to fly to Paradise Ridge. Be careful, the wind does not come up and you get stuck down the ridge. A few have been blown over the back, but fortunately have landed safely. If you do get stuck, it is best to land at the end and walk out at the eastern end which is Swartvlei where there is a car park for easy retrieval. Secure sandals.
