If you’ve always harboured a desire to master the art of surfing, a holiday in Cape Town is the ideal time to learn this enjoyable sport. The city offers the most highly concentrated number of surf spots in South Africa. There are about 50 spots within an hour’s drive of the city, some of which are top-secret and only known to the serious surfing fraternity, so be sure to make friends when you're in the area! The largest concentration of breaks lies on the west side of the Cape Peninsula facing the Atlantic Ocean. The others line the Indian Ocean coastline in the east.
Beginners are advised to visit Muizenberg and Big Bay, where conditions are optimal for learning to surf. For some inspiration you might like to call in at some of these beaches to watch the professionals at work: Llandudno, the Hoek, Hout Bay, Glen Beach, Dunes, Long Beach, Crayfish Factory, and Kalk Bay Reef, among others.
If you’ve decided that now is a perfect time to learn to surf, sign up with one of our accredited surf schools. We are always ready to recommend the best schools and beaches based on your level of experience (or lack thereof).
