About Us

Lagoon Life has evolved out of the desire of local Langebaaner Rob Meintjes and his family to share and expose the fantastic natural playground on their doorstep. We regularly compete in various sporting events and coaching clinics throughout the Western Cape, elsewhere in South Africa and have also embarked on a few international expeditions. Our core focus is on succesfully operating events, training camps, team-building functions, coaching clinics and indivdual sessions in the multi-sport arena, triathlon in general and more specifically, paddling (kayak & surfski), running (trail & road) and cycling (mtb & road) . We have been organising local events since our first flagship paddling event "The Langebaan Lagoon Dash" was succesfully staged on the Langebaan Lagoon in 2003.

The fact that we have three children has influenced our decision in placing great emphasis on exposing children and families to the many outdoor activities in and around Langebaan Lagoon. My wife, Cajsa (a teacher and avid marathon runner) is an integral part of the Lagoon Life team, she brings with her a unique set of skills that complement and complete the team.

Rob comes from an IT and madly keen sporting background. His travels have taken him through Europe, Asia & Australia/NZ. He set up the first successful kid’s development paddling program in the Western Cape, is an accredited paddling safety officer and loves working with kids especially in water-based sports in and around the Lagoon. Langebaan and its special way of life has been an intrinsic part of him since he was 3 years old and eventually became home in 2004. His 3 year old is now following in his footsteps by being the youngest member in the kids paddling program. He has taken part in and conquered most of the iconic endurance events in SA, including the Berg River Canoe Marathon, Ironman SA, Comrades Marathon, Two Oceans Marathon, more than 10 Argus Cycle Tours, The Cape Point Surfski Challenge as well as a venture to Sweden to compete in the Vassloppet cross-country 90km ski race.
