Surfing Lessons

Have you ever wanted to experience what it feels like to glide down the open face of a moving wave?! Our surf lessons are conducted at Muizenberg and Big Bay Blouberg, both are beach breaks with perfect waves for beginners and intermediates. Our instructors have many years of surfing experience and have helped hundreds of learners find their feet. We also include a surfing lesson on ocean awareness. We will get you into the surf and onto your feet!


You will be picked up by your instructor at 08:00 and taken to either Big Bay Blouberg or Muizenberg (depending on surf condition) or if you have your own transport, you can meet us there. Here you will be kitted out with your wetsuit and surf board. You will then have a short warm up and a surfing lesson on ocean awareness on the beach before heading into the surf and getting taught exactly how to paddle into a wave and stand up! After 1.5 hours of being taught to surf you will be given the chance to surf by yourself!

All transport (optional), qualified instructor, light snacks and refreshments and all equipment.
