Beside the carpark is a small launch site. Soar left, work the first small ridge before crossing the training dune and heading for Paradise Ridge. If you find the first site too small, walk down to the beach, and along at the water’s edge until you see the clear area of the main training dune.

Please do not launch from the top launch. This site is ecologically sensitive, and SAHPA are working with both the landowner and SANParks to find was to control and mitigate against further degradation of this site.
