How often does this camp take place?

We hope to run the camp once a month, however the camp maybe called off if there is a lack of participation during our slower seasons.

We offer dorm room accommodation for most clients, but should you require more privacy, we can secure a Single or Double room.

 Subject to the backpackers availability and pricing.

What is the difference between the two camps?

The 2 Day and 5 Day camps are actually set to run simultaneously and take place in Muizenberg, where you will be staying for the duration of the camp.

The difference between the 2 camps is the duration and most likely your improvement level, as both these camps offer a rigorous surfing schedule.

 

The 5 Day ’Stoked & Ripping’ is our intense surf package.

It involves 7 surf lessons over the 5 days, 4x nights accommodation with daily breakfast and 2 x dinners.

Intermediate-Advanced Lessons:

After multiple attempts to run intermediate to advanced lessons, we have decided to discontinue the option. This is due to the immense variety of skill levels of each of our students and their requirements.

Should you wish to proceed with intermediate lessons we recommend the following options:

  1. If it is your first time surfing with Stoked School of Surf, we recommend joining ur normal beginners lesson in order for us to understand your skill level and adjust accordingly.
  2. Book our private option (with a friend of similar skill) in order to have a coach dedicated specifically to you.
  3. We can try group with similar skill levels, but we require flexibility.
Do I need to bring my own wetsuit and board?

No you do not have to. We will provide your wetsuit and board.

We use beginner specific foamboards but have an array of hard boards you may use, if the coach sees progress.

Please specify if you have prior surfing experience and would like to use a hardboard.

Are there any age restrictions to your lessons?

We coach any age, as long as they are comfortable in the water. 

We range from about 8 years old to 65+, but we insist that minors are booked for private lessons, so that we may have a coach dedicated to them.

 

Is it compulsory to prebook a surf camp?

Yes it is. We need to make sure about the amount of people who are attending and we need to know any dietary or medical conditions which may be pertinent. 

Can friends come with to the beach?

If you have booked a Private 'Solo Stoked' lesson we allow a friend to join, even if it is just for the ride.

However if you would like to secure transport with our group lessons, we have to charge for transport as they will be taking up a full paying customer's seat.

Alternatively you can make the request and we will advise if there is space available closer to the time of departure.

Won't I get cold?

We provide very nice 4:3mm wetsuits, which should keep you well protected from the colder waters in Cape Town.

This will also depend on your threshold for cold temperatures and how active you are in the water. The more you move the less cold you will be.

I have 'Experienced the Stoke' but now I want more. What do I do?

We are 'stoked' when people want to  continue surfing as it shows us that you have felt the ‘stoke’ and have been hooked by the magnificence that is surfing.

We actually offer a variety of surf camps, trips and packages for multiple lessons, such as:

'Uber Stoked': 4 x 2hr lesson which can be booked according to availability, within a 6 week period.

If you wish to upgrade to this package, you will simply pay the difference.

For a more intense lesson plan and some very good exercise we reccomend one of our rigorous surf camps:

2 Day 'Weekend Stoke' Surf Camp: 3 x 2hr surf lessons in 2 days, which we host once a month. 1x night accomodation, dinner & breakfast included.

5 Day 'Stoked & Ripping' Surf Camp: 7 x 2hr surf lessons in 5 days, which we host once a month. 4x nights accomodation, 2x dinners & daily breakfast.

For further details visit our camps section.

If you want to learn to surf or simply surf, whilst enjoying a little rest and relaxation we recommend the following options:

Uber-Flex 'Surf 'N Stay': 4x 2hr Surf Lessons, with 7 nights accomodation inclusive of breakfast at one of the many amazing Cape Town hostels we are affiliated with.

Can be booked at any time, but subject to availability. Your lessons will be completed within the 7 day period.

3 Day 'Stoked on the Southern Cape' Surf Trip: A surfers road trip to the Southern Most Tip of Africa with 3x 2hr surf lessons, 2 nights accomodation and all meals (excl lunch day 1) and activities included.

Hosted once a month, View our Camps and Trips section for further details.

We actually recommend that you do upgrade as doing lessons in close succession should improve your surfing drastically. It helps cement the your actions into muscle memory.

Do your lessons apply to all levels of surfer or just begginers?

Our basic group lessons are for begginer to intermidiate level surfers.

We try to group our lessons, in order to have similar level surfers in the same lessons. The coach will help you in any area which they think requires attention and any area requested.

However we offer private lessons, if you are not comfortable learning with others, or if you would like a coach designated to you, so that they may help with specific areas.

For the competent surfers we offer surf guiding. This is not to be viewed as a lesson as the participants must be capable in the water and on a surf board.

The coach, may offer pointers if they see any area which needs improvement, but it is more of a surf session and introduction to Cape Town waters.

'Uber-Stoked'

Do I need to bring my own wetsuit and board?

No you do not have to. We will provide your wetsuit and board.

We use beginner specific foamboards but have an array of hard boards you may use, if the coach sees progress.

Please specify if you have prior surfing experience and would like to use a hardboard.

How long do I have to complete the lessons?

Our Uber Stoked package is valid for 6 weeks from the date of purchase.

Can I book 1 surf lesson then upgrade to this package?

Of course! We often have people who are unsure of surfing, so we developed this package as a follow up.

If you wish to upgrade from the 'Experience the Stoke' lesson to the 'Uber Stoke', you will simply have to pay the difference between the 2 and you will secure 3 more lessons.

Can I transfer my outstanding lessons to a friend?

No, the lessons are not transferable to a third party.

Should you wish to gift one of our lessons/packages/camps/trips to a special someone, we can create a a gift voucher.

Is it possible to book a Private 4 lesson package?

Yes, we do offer a Package of 4 'Solo Stoked'.

Should you wish to upgrade from a 'Solo Stoked' to the 4 Solo Stoked package, you will simply have to pay the difference between the two.

Can I upgrade a 'Solo Stoked' to your 'Uber Stoked' group lessons?

Yes, however the difference for the upgrade will not be calculated as the difference between the Uber Stoked and a Solo Stoked.

The diffrence owed will be the same as that of the normal Uber Stoked package upgrade.

If transport is required and all the pick ups for the group are from one place, we will charge one transported rate and the rest will be on Self-drive rates.

Why are kids lessons private?

We insist on private lessons for minors, so that a coach can be provided specifically for them.

We find that having a coach dedicated specifically to minors helps control any unsavoury situations that may occur.

Can I book an “Solo Stoke” lesson and then upgrade to your 4 lesson package?

Of course, we actually love it when people want to upgrade as we can see that you feel the ‘stoke’ and have been hooked by the magnificence that is surfing.

If you wish to upgrade you will simply pay the difference between the two.
