Muizenberg, the best place to learn to surf in Cape Town

Muizenberg is located on the south side of Cape Town and is an ideal spot to learn to surf.

The water is always a little warmer here and the shallow sandbanks make it ideal for learning to surf. There are plenty places to rent boards and wetsuits as well as book surf lessons with professional instructors.  It’s no wonder they call this Surfer’s corner.

Price: Board & Westsuit rental +- R200
Location: Muizenberg
Tips: If it’s your first time we recommend you take a lesson. It will help you get along faster.

There are many surf schools along the beach front in Muizenberg. We can suggest Gary’s Surf School as a great one-stop-shop to get gear and lessons, but there is also the Surf Shack and the Surfers Emporium. Any one of these places will set you up quick sticks and get you in the water with the right setup to suit you.
