Surf Lessons with African Soul Surfer
Learn to surf with the kiffest surf school in Cape Town!
Along the curving shores of the Cape Peninsula, where surfing in South Africa was arguably birthed, lies African Soul Surfer. Not only do they offer a unique backpacking experience but guided surf lessons, board and wetsuit rentals and surf camp packages too.
With mellow waves all year round, African Soul Surfer gives grommets (young surfers) the best of Muizenberg beaches, with warmer waters than Camps Bay beach and the Clifton beaches found along the Atlantic coast. This surf spot is ideal for those new to riding waves, or for those looking to up their wave game and surf with fellow enthusiasts!
Expect the group lessons to be small in size with a maximum of six participants. Starting on the beach, African Soul Surfer’s coaches will explain the basics and demonstrate the dos and don’ts for when you’re out on the water. Lessons last 90 minutes and you’re able to make use of their surfboards and wetsuits if you don’t have your own. For those eager-beavers, African Soul Surfer also offers participants the option to continue using the equipment for an extended 60 minutes after the lesson.
Before you know it, you’ll be paddling out, catching waves and styling like Kelly Slater!
What’s more is that African Soul Surfer also offers surf camps where wave breaking rookies come together to soak up the vibe on a surfari – a surfing safari, get it? The camps last two, three or five days and include daily breakfasts and surf lessons in the morning, with trained surf instructors and equipment. Afternoons are kept free to surf, explore or simply relax.
