KIDS SURF LESSONSHOLIDAY SURF CAMPS | AFTER SCHOOL SURF CLUB

Surfing is a great way to introduce your kids to the ocean. Your kids will learn how to surf or improve their skills whilst gaining confidence in the ocean in a supervised environment. Your child’s safety is our priority with all our coaches being accredited and trained in first aid. We have quality wetsuits that will to keep your kids comfortable in the Cape Town waters. We also have a range of surfboards for kids to progress onto as they progress in their surfing. Most importantly, we will ensure that your kids have a safe and fun experience with us. We have a strict COVID-19 safety plan in place to ensure the safety of your child and our staff.

Stoked have taught all my kids to surf….I’ve even had a few lessons! They offer a unique “collect from school, surf and return to an easy pick up point!”. They are fantastic….professional, organised and loads of fun! They know every surf spot in town and always choose appropriately! Highly recommended.

Frequently asked questions

This accordian has css properties, to hide and make accordian appear closed by default.

WHAT IS THE AGE RESTRICTION FOR YOUR LESSONS?

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 THE KIDS NEED THEIR OWN GEAR?

Lessons include the use of a wetsuit and suitable board. We use soft tops for beginners and have a full range of regular hard surfboards we can progress the kids onto during their surfing journey with us. Please specify if they have prior surfing experience and would like to use a hardboard.

IF OUR KID/S ENJOY THEIR FIRST LESSON, CAN THEY UPGRADE TO A LESSON PACKAGE?

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

IS THERE A DISCOUNT IF KIDS HAVE THEIR OWN WETSUIT OR SURFBOARD?

The price remains the same whether your kid/s use their own equipment or ours-they’re still taking a slot in the lesson. They’re welcome to bring their 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 they have their own.

WILL OUR KID/S GET COLD?

We provide good quality 4:3mm wetsuits, which should keep your kid/s 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 THE KIDS SURF AT?

We are based in Camps Bay and go out to the beach with the most suitable conditions on the day of their booking. Typically we operate most of our kids lessons at Muizenberg as they seem to enjoy it there more, however we can adapt and operate in Big Bay or elsewhere if needed. For kids surfing with us regularly, they do enjoy the change in beach for a new challenge. If you have opted to drive your kid/s 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 your kid to be an intermediate surfer and wish to focus on improving specific skills, we suggest that they form their own group of 4 participant on a similar level who we can then progress together. Alternatively, our private lesson option would be a good fit. If the private lesson rate is out of your budget, your kid/s can still join our group lessons and we can give them additional tips in the water (but we will need them to stay in the lesson zone with the rest of the group).

HOW DO WE SIGN A GROUP UP FROM OUR SCHOOL FOR THE WEEKLY EXTRA-MURAL SURF LESSONS?

We need a minimum of 8 participants from the same school to dedicate an afternoon slot to one school group. Find group of 8 friends keen to learn how to surf or improive their surfing and contact us to see which day we have available to take them. Sign them up for a termly package, and we will collect the kids from school and take them surfing once a week as an extra-mural sport/activity!

WHO DRIVES THE VAN FOR THE SURF CAMPS AND WEEKLY EXTRA-MURAL LESSONS?

Our surf coaches who drive the vans are also in possession of Professional Driving Permits (PDP’s). To get such a permit, one needs to have a medical examination, an additional eye test and also have no criminal record. All our vehicles have full public liability insurance and operator permits which means they have to pass an annual roadworthy test.

WHERE ARE THE PICK UP POINTS FOR THE SURF CAMPS?

We collect from Camps Bay High parking, Engen Gardens, BP Newlands and Engen Ladies Mile. Timings will be given at the time of booking.

WHAT IS THE COACH: STUDENT RATIO?

Depending on age and ability level, we will have 1:3 up to 1:6.

DO YOU SELL GEAR?

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

DO THE KIDS STILL SURF IF IT RAINS?

Ofcourse-they’re going to get wet anyway. It’s the most fun they 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.
