Egypt is no guarantee for wind as well...granted it's usually a lot less gusty than in SA, but a lot weaker, too.

Another great spot in Southern Africa between April & June is Mozambique.

Ponta D'Ouro or Malongane are great places to kite: warm water, amazing waves and wind

Since you're already in South Africa, check out Port Elizabeth.

Windguru forecast looks pretty good for next week.
