Blokarting in South Africa

Read about this experience: On a recent trip to South Africa my un-ending quest to find new and original adventure activities introduced me to something I had never heard of before - Blokarting. Blokarting is basically land sailing. That doesn't sound like it makes much sense but basically we're talking about very low, very light, go-kart with a very wide stanc, no engine and a huge sail like that of a small sailboat. With the right amount of wind the vehicles are actually light enough to sustain motion and that's what brought me to South Africa's Muizenberg beach outside of Cape Town to check them out.
