When my friend asked me if I wanted to learn to surf, I laughed at her. I am 45 and haven’t been in the sea for at least 20 years. 2 lessons later, I was standing (well sort of) and I am ‘stoked’. Loved every minute of it

4-Group Lesson Package

If you really want to get to grips with the basics of surfing, this is the package for you. It includes 4 x 1.5- hour group surf lessons which you can book over a period of a few days or up to 4 weeks-whatever best suits your schedule (and ours). You’ll learn everything from:

  • Correct paddling technique
  • How to stand up on a board (the surfer’s pop-up)
  • How to turn the board
  • How to select the right waves

Although you’re in a group, the coaches will help you develop your skills on an individual level.

After four surf lessons, (our aim is that) you’ll have the basic skills and confidence to practice in beginner surf on your own. If you’re wanting to purchase your own surfboard and wetsuit, we’ll also advise on what equipment is best for you and can offer you great deals.

If you’d prefer to try a lesson before committing to a package, we do offer the option to book a single group surf lesson and upgrade to a 4-lesson package. You’ll simply pay the price difference and we’ll count your first lesson as 1 of 4.

*must be 16 years or older to participate in adult group lessons

From first contact, Stoked were excellent. We booked a surf lesson for our family, age ranges 23 to 60 years old and variable experience. Stoked’s communication was amazing and we knew we were in experienced hands. The lesson was fantastic, we felt incredibly safe and had top class teaching, some of us even managed to stand up! Definitely recommend booking a lesson with them, a must do when visiting Cape Town.

WHAT IS THE AGE RESTRICTION FOR YOUR LESSONS?

For our adult group lessons, participants must be 16 years or older. You’re never to old to start surfing 😉
For our kids group lessons, participants need to be 9 years or older.
For kids 8 years or younger, you will need to book a private lesson.
We currently run kids group lessons on Sundays at 09h15am and need minimum numbers to operate. Private lessons are available any day of the week.

DO I NEED MY OWN GEAR?

We will provide you with a wetsuit and suitable board. We use soft tops for beginners and have a full range of regular hard surfboards you may progress on to during your surfing lessons with us. Please specify if you have prior surfing experience and would like to use a hardboard.

IF I ENJOY MY FIRST LESSON, CAN I UPGRADE TO A 4-LESSON PACKAGE?

Of course, we’d be stoked to see you coming back for more. Upgrading is easy. Simply let us know after your first lesson that you wish to upgrade to the package, pay the price difference between a single lesson and the package price and we will count your first lesson as 1 of 4!

IS THERE A DISCOUNT IF I HAVE MY OWN WETSUIT OR SURFBOARDT?

The price remains the same whether you use your own equipment or ours-you’re still taking a slot in the lesson. You’re welcome to bring your own gear to use during the lessons. Often students need to progress onto different boards during their surfing journey with us and therefore we have the option to use our equipment even if you have your own.

WILL I GET COLD?

We provide good quality 4:3mm wetsuits, which should keep you well insulated from the colder waters in Cape Town. Typically, we find that our students are having so much fun that they forget above the water temperature.

WHERE ARE YOU BASED AND WHICH BEACH DO WE SURF AT?

We are based in Camps Bay and go out to the beach with the most suitable conditions on the day of your booking. If you have opted for the transported lesson option, we will pick you up at the arranged time. If you have opted to drive yourself to the beach, we will send meeting point details the day prior.

IS THERE A PENALTY FOR A LATE CANCELLATION OR ‘NO SHOW’?

Yes, there certainly is. Please note our terms and conditions BEFORE making your booking with us as these are not negotiable.

Less than 24 hours prior to booking date-NO REFUND; 25 hours- 7 days prior to booking date-90% refund. 4-lesson package needs to be used within 6 weeks of first lesson date. Package lessons are not transferable to a third party.

DO YOU OFFER GROUP LESSONS FOR INTERMEDIATE SURFERS?

If you consider yourself an intermediate surfer and wish to focus on improving specific skills, our private lesson option would be more suitable for you as we can not guarantee that others in the group lesson will be on the same skill level. Private lesson pricing works well if you have a friend on a similar level that you wish to share the total lesson cost. If the private lesson price is out of your budget, you can still join our group lessons and we can give you additional tips in the water (but we will need you to stay in the lesson zone with the rest of the group).

What is the coach: student ratio?

Depending on skill level, group lessons can range from 1:3 to a maximum of 1:6.

DO WE STILL SURF IF IT RAINS?

Of course-you’re going to get wet anyway. It’s the most fun you can have in the rain. We check the surf forecast on a daily basis, and will inform you should it be necessary to reschedule. The online forecasts are most reliable within 24 hours of the schedule date.

DO YOU SELL GEAR?

The gear we sell, is any of the gear we have in our school. So you can try it during your lessons before making the financial investment into your own gear if they want to. Speak to us and we will gladly assist with the process.
