This package includes 4 × 1.5-hour group surf lessons. We cover everything from surf safety and ocean awareness, to paddling technique, how to stand up and surf the waves, turning and trimming green waves to wave selection and rules of the surf.
Become a beginner
After four surf lessons, you are guaranteed to be ‘stoked’ and ready to venture off into the appropriate ‘beginner’ surf on your own. We will advise what equipment is best for you and should you decide to purchase your own gear, we will even guide you to the stores with the best deals.
Try 1 lesson first
If you would prefer to ‘try before you buy’ we do offer the option to book for a single group lesson and upgrade to the 4-lesson package should you be ‘stoked’ after your first lesson. Simply pay the price difference and we will count your first lesson as 1 of 4. For online bookings, please let us know the day you’d like to do your first lesson and then email us the desired dates for lessons 2, 3, and 4.

We will pick you up from one of our selected city pick up points and take you to surf at Muizenberg OR Big Bay beach depending on the conditions forecast for the day of your booking
We use high quality 4:3mm wetsuits to keep you warm throughout the year in the Cape Town waters. Wetsuits are well maintained-washed and rinsed after each use. We use beginner specific soft boards for those who have never touched a surfboard or only surfed a handful of times. These boards are easy to catch waves with and make standing easier as they are stable.
We will drop you off at one of our selected city points at the end of the activity.
• 4 x 2-hour long lessons
• 4:3 mm wetsuit
• Suitable surfboard
• Transport from one of our pre-determined city pick up points
Please note we only collect at select pick up points for logistical reasons. If your exact pick up location is not on our list of pre-determined pick up points, please choose the one closest to you or email us your location so we can advise where best to meet our vehicle. Pick up locations have been strategically selected to ensure you do not need to travel/walk far to meet us if you are staying centrally in the city/Atlantic seaboard area.
