We use quality 4:3mm wetsuits to keep you warm throughout the year. Wetsuits are well maintained-washed and rinsed after each use. We use beginner specific softboards for those who have never touched a surfboard or only surfed a handful of times. These boards are easy to catch waves with and make standing easier as they are stable. If you have more surfing experience and are wanting to use a regular epoxy/fibreglass board for your private lesson, kindly detail your experience and let us know which board size is preferable at the time of booking.
For the self-drive option, we will advise (via email) the beach we will be operating the lesson on at least 24 hours in advance.
For the transported option, we offer pick ups from locations in Cape Town city and surrounds (see pick up area list below). If you are located outside of the pick up area, we will ask you to meet us at a pre-arranged location in the city. If you are staying at a private residence/Airbnb etc, we will ask you to meet us at one of our regular pick up points closest to your accommodation. We will transport you to the beach in our comfortable van or our original surf school VW golf. Please note that whilst you will be assigned your private surf coach at the beach, you may share the transfer to the beach with other group lesson participants. If you are wanting a lesson outside our regular lesson time slots, we will try our best to accomodate your request if we are able to.
