Our Uber Stoked package is valid for 6 weeks from the date of purchase.
This package includes 4 x 2-hour group surf lessons which can be taken over a period of a few days up to 6 weeks-whatever best suits your schedule. We cover everything from surf safety and ocean awareness, to paddling technique, how to stand up and surf the waves, turning and trimming green waves to wave selection and rules of the surf.
After four surf lessons, you are guaranteed to be 'stoked' and ready to venture off into the appropriate 'beginner' surf on your own. We will advise what equipment is best for you and should you decide to purchase your own gear, we will even guide you to the stores with the best deals.
If you would prefer to 'try before you buy' we do offer the option to book for an 'Experience the Stoke' lesson and upgrade to the 'Uber-Stoked' package should you be 'stoked' after your first lesson. Simply pay the price difference and we will count your first lesson as 1 of 4. For online bookings, please let us know the day you'd like to do your first lesson and then email us the desired dates for lesson 2, 3 and 4.
Pricing valid until 31st of October 2020:
Drive yourself to the beach (self-drive option): R1950pp
We collect you from your hotel (transported option): R2850pp
Location & Inclusion
Our headquarters are located in Camps Bay so that we have easy accessibility to both coastlines of the Peninsula. Lessons take place at the most suitable beach depending on the conditions on the day of your booking. We check the forecast on several reliable sources and combine this information with our local knowledge to decide where we will coach each day. We consider factors such as wind, tides, swell direction and ocean temperatures before making our decision to provide the safest and most enjoyable experience.
Surf lessons are 2-hours long and include the use of:
- 4:3mm wetsuit
- suitable surfboard
Surf Gear & Transport
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 a bit more surfing experience and are wanting to use a regular epoxy/fibreglass board, kindly let us know at the time of booking.
For the self-drive option, we will advise (via email or sms) 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.
The following is the pick up schedule for our morning and afternoon lesson slots (please note the suburb your lodging is located in to determine your approximate pick up time):
Camps Bay: 8:00-8:15am OR 1:00-1:15pm
City & Sea Point : 8:15-8:30am OR 1:15-1:30pm
Green Point: 8:30-8:45am OR 1:30-1:45pm
Woodstock: 8:45-9:00am OR 1:45-2:00pm
Observatory: 8:45-9:00am OR 1:45-2:00pm
If you choose the transported lesson option, we will pick you up from your accommodation and transport you to the beach with the most ideal wind and swell conditions on the day of your lesson. If you opt for the self-drive option, we will send details 24 hours in advance of where and when to meet us for each of your 4 lessons. Upon arrival at the beach, we change into our wetsuits and hit the surf for a 2- hour lesson. Each of the 4 lessons is progressive, so that you learn new skills in each lesson. This includes everything from surf saftey and ocean awareness to paddling technique and how to stand up and surf the waves, directional changes, paddling to the backline and catching green waves. Skills taught are based on your personal progression so that you are never out of your comfort level.
If you have joined us for the transported option, below is the drop off schedule:
For morning lessons, drop offs take place 12:45-1:30pm.
For afternoon lessons, drop offs take place 5:45-6:30pm.
Please note: The above drop off times are dependent on where your lodging is located and traffic through the city. If you have time constraints, kindly let us know at the time of enquiry/booking to ensure we can accommodate this.
