Learn to Surf
South Africa

If you are looking for a highly personalized learn to surf experience with true local guides, this is the place to be.” – Maxime Snick, Belgium (via TripAdvisor)

I loved every second. Thank you for teaching me so much about the ocean. I can’t wait to go on another surf with you! “ – Niklas, Germany (via Instagram)

“It was my first time surfing (ever) and my guide made sure I got the most out of it, taking me to various spots around Kleinmond and Hermanus, teaching me the technicals but also how the sea and waves work.” – Toma, UK (via TripAdvisor)

South Africa offers a wide variety of uncrowded waves that are suited for those wanting to learn to surf in one of the world’s most beautiful locations.

Surfing for beginners

Our learn-to-surf trips are aimed at teaching beginners more about the ocean, and the basics of surfing in a fun and relaxed environment. Our beginner surf trips usually last between 2 and 6 days (the length of the trip is completely up to you). Your trip includes everything from transport, to a personal coach, wet suit and board rental, accommodation, waterfall hikes and more.

Your surf guide will meet you at your pickup point (usually Cape Town International Airport), and transport you safely to your accommodation. 

What to expect

You’ll begin each day with a hearty breakfast. Daily activities will consist of surf sessions, waterfall hikes, experiencing authentic South African cuisine, and getting to know the friendly local South African culture. We also offer a wide range of optional adventure activities: everything from safari game drives, to seal snorkelling, wine-tasting tours and more.

Our surf trips are personalised, and tailored to your needs. Whether you are a laid-back traveler looking for a relaxing surf holiday; or an adrenaline junkie looking for an adventure-filled holiday, we’ve got you covered.
