PONTA D’OURA ANNUAL TRIP 18-21 August 

PONTA D’Oura is right on our doorstep and we make sure that we use it. Every year we hit a boys trip – or should I say kiters trip – there and have a weekend of kiting, SUPing, surfing and having a good time. What makes it even better is  the crew of guys that go up there! I am sure that by now everyone booking knows the deal, but this year we going to change the pricing structure to try and make it meet everyones needs so please read through fully and fill the booking form in to ensure your spot

Please understand that we make this a kiters trip so we can spend a weekend away doing what we love and however long we want to do it. It is a great weekend of getting our fix in kiting with like minded people, but it can cause problems for other kiters if you want to take your wife along as then other wives hear about it and want to come to or other husbands now can’t go. I have had to deal with this in the past and I really ask everyone to understand that even though your wife might be the best wife, or husband for that matter, it can cause problems so lets keep this as a kiters weekend as that is what makes it so successful.

COSTS

The chalets that we book have 3 rooms  – 2 double bedrooms and then another room with 4 bunks. The cost of the unit is R2200 per night. Some people don’t want to sleep 4 up in a room so we are going to give you guys the opportunity to let me know. We can do either 4 people per unit  or 6 people per unit or if you wanting a unit for just 2 of you then we can do that as well and the prices will adjust accordingly. This year though we are going to charge the guys extra for the double rooms and we are looking at a 4 sleeper being R700/R700/R400/R400 a 6 sleeper R250/R250/R250/R250/R600/R600.  If there is too much demand for the double rooms then I might have to change the pricing structure. If there is a kiting couple going along then this will also affect the pricing. I will try to make sure that everyone gets what they are after, but it is a nightmare so I am doing a form (which is at the bottom of this page) that will hopefully make life easier so please fill it in, it is dated so will work on a first come first serve basis so make sure you get your name down first. Your position is only confirmed once it is paid up.

FOOD AND TRAVEL

Just so I don’t get the normal questions – we will braai on the first 2 nights at the boma there and then eat out on the Saturday. If you don’t want to do this then you don’t have to, as this is your holiday and you can do what you like. Each unit can sort there own food out and chat amongst themselves and there are plenty of restaurants around that will be more than happy to feed you.

You can get a visa at the border if you are a foreigner and you do need a 4 x 4 to go across the border. Where possible we try and arrange lifts for people that require it but this is going to be done well in advance this year.

If you are travelling up with someone else then split costs with them to ease their load.

If you have paid your deposit and are no longer able to go then I am afraid you will lose out, unless we can arrange for someone else to take your spot.
