2-day 'Stoked like a Local' surf camp

Activity Description

This is the perfect weekend escape for those looking for a taste of the surfing lifestyle along with enjoying the best local experiences in the area. You will be based at accommodation located right at Muizenberg beach (only 40 minutes from Cape Town city center). We will surf two different beaches along the False Bay coast, explore unique local attractions and enjoy meals from the coolest local restaurants. We will teach you the basics of surfing from paddling to standing up, how to read the waves and surfing etiquette. By the end of these two days, you’ll be comfortable in the surf and have experienced the best wines, views and food through the eyes of a local.

WeatherPlease note surf camps will run regardless of weather. We are at the mercy of the elements and these can not be determined at the time of scheduling camp dates for the year. We base our decision whether to operate the camp surf lessons according to wind, tide and swell charts. We typically DO NOT cancel surf lessons because of rain. You're going to get wet anyway. Besides it's the most fun you can have outdoors in the rain! And if for any reason we can't surf one of the surf camp lessons, we will find something else that is fun for you to fill the time.
What to WearFor each lesson please wear a swimsuit and apply sunscreen in advance if possible. On day 1, please keep your towel and change of dry clothing in an easily accessible compartment of your bag as we will start the day with a surf lesson en route to the accommodation.
Things to Bringwaterproof suncreen (zinc and or ‘Island Tribe’ recommended); towel; bathing suit/boardshorts; warm jacket; sandals; bottle of water; cash (for refreshments & lunch on day 1 & optional yoga lesson)
Guests or SpectatorsOnly full paying guests will be allowed on the vehicle and in the lessons. Non-surfers may only join at the full camp price.

Notes

Stoked School of Surf will collect you from one of our designated city pick up points at 8:15-8:45am on day 1. You’ll be transported to the beach in one of our surf school vehicles. On day 2, we will drop you off (at the same pick up point) at approximately 6:00pm after a weekend of sun, surf and fun.

We will provide you with a wetsuit and surfboard to use for each surf lesson. For those who have never surfed or who have only surfed a handful of times, we use our beginner specific soft boards making it easy to catch waves and stand up. As you progress through your lessons, the coach may move you onto different boards and you may even find yourself riding a regular ‘hard’ board by the end of the camp. For those who have surfed before and have an understanding of how to catch waves and handle a board in crowded conditions, we offer regular epoxy or fibreglass boards.

We use 4:3mm wetsuits that are well maintained and are sure to keep you warm for the duration of each 2-hour session. These surf camps are great for any visitor to the Mother City. They are also perfectly designed for party ideas and can make a great adventure for any team build or even a unique bachelorette or bachelors weekend. It’s all about sharing in the ‘stoke’.
