South Africa is surf country. Durban and Cape Town produces many world-class surfers and the waves here are world class. I lived in Los Angeles for over 22 years and never had a surf lesson. It is not until I moved across the continent, away from the forever sun and waves did I fancy giving surfing a try.
Stoked to Surf is a mobile surfing lesson outfit. They chase the waves and take you out to where the surf is the best that day for your level. Brilliant!
I spent two hours learning how to surf with a pro-surfer Tasha on Muizenberg beach. Even though at the end of the day, I didn’t quite manage to stand up and properly ride that first wave, I was hooked. The next time you are in South Africa, find your way to the coast, rent a board, get a lesson and give it a go. From those who know….when you stand up and ride that perfect wave….its god like.
