Never thought I would be able to stand on a surfboard before at least 500 lessons but after just 20mins on my first lesson because of how These ladies coach I rode my first wave ever!!! And second lesson was even better stood up on my first try. It’s the best school in the business I would say. And very Godly and encouraging spirit you won’t feel incompetent but just so much FUN!!!!

Absolutely great surf school. The staff is just awesome and they do their best to bring you on the board and surf the waves around Cape Town. I really enjoyed my lessons and the days I spent with Surf Life.

I had my first ever surf lesson this past Saturday and I’m in love! These guys are the best teachers, they were so patient with me and my sister, and so professional. I’m not a huge fan of water but they made me feel safe every step of the way and took great care of us. I can’t wait for my next lesson, going all in with the 4 lesson pack next time. I highly recommend them.
