Founded by 9 x South African Surfing Champion Roxy Davis, we are renowned not only for the quality of our equipment and coaching, but even more for the overall sense of community. Everyone is welcome to come and share the stoke with us; whether it is something you are thinking about trying for the first time or something you have loved for years.

Muizenberg is rated one of the safest beaches to learn to surf, the gentle gradient of the sand bank makes for fantastic soft rolling waves which give the learner surfer plenty of time to get their feet...

Round off your lesson experience with a browse through our retail store and chat to our team who are happy to share their knowledge and experience on surfing and other attractions in the area.

We also have a Vida e Caffè (all under one roof) :)

Nothing but great things to say about this…my kids all had a blast! All 3 are very different in their comfort level and skills. The instructors matched their needs perfectly. They were incredibly encouraging and helpful. Thank you!
