Surfing in Cape Town in Agugust - Hi, I´m going to Cape Town on August, and I was wondering how the swells are, are they consistent on that time? When´s the best surfing season in South Africa? Another question is the water temperature, its winter, so the water must be freezing, right? Which wetsuit do you have to use, a 3.5 or a 4.3? And the sharks??!

Thanks for the info.

chilling and surfing in cape town - should you find yourself in cape town looking to chill and/or surf, check out an easy living surf lodge called chill and surf. i've spent a great deal of time there. the owner pierre will introduce you into the local surf spots and you will have a great time while staying there!

Reply to Feb surfing in Cape Town - Hi... you will no doubt love Cape Town, I know I do!

Muizenberg is the no 1 beginners beach in Cape Town and has surf schools and warmer water. It is offshore in a North-Wester (which blows more in winter/May-August).

If the South-Easter blows, and it probably will, try Big Bay at Bloubergstrand... you'll also get a classic view of Table Mountain.

This is the beauty of Cape Town... somewhere is offshore everyday... both are these places are popular, but no bad vibes or localism!

If you want to see beautiful beaches... try going to Camp's Bay, Llandudno, NoordHoek for sundowners... There are beautiful waves at NoordHoek and Llandudno, but not for beginners!

As for a hostel, try find a booklet called Coast to Coast that lists them...

Sharks and Surfing in Cape Town - Luisa check out Muizenberg when you get to Cape Town. You can get lessons and/or hire boards from either Gary's Surf School or Lifestyle Surf Shop. There is a shark spotting programme in place that looks out for water users. Avoid surfing on your own though at any time just in case. Otherwise enjoy the Mother City and the surfing

what about sharks? - Hallo guys, I'm an italian girl with a great passion for the ocean (but still a beginner surfer). In a couple of weeks I'm travelling to South Africa,landing in Cape Town and renting a car for a one-month-travel. I would like to spend at least two weeks surfing by the coast between Cape Town and east london. What are the spots suitable for beginners in that periods? And, above all,what about sharks?? I've heard some bad stories.. Thank you. Keep on writing on this great website!
