Welcome To Cape Town Surf School

We are situated in Small Bay, only a 20 minute drive from Cape Town’s CBD on the beautiful West Coast. The Bay is definitely the place to be. It is a huge tourist attraction as we are blessed with awesome restaurants and a beautiful view overlooking the majestic Atlantic Ocean across from Table Mountain. It is safe, relaxed and friendly. Kids aged 4+, teenagers and adults are all welcome to book a surfing lesson with Cape Town Surf School. We do lots of bookings for families and students. Locally and internationally. We are very limited with space as we are super busy with lessons. So please send us an email or call us to book your surfing lesson.

We have made it easier for you if  you are from another country by having an online payment system on our website so that you can pay us directly for your surfing lesson. Have a look at our “Payments” Page to manage your payments. Cash & Cards welcome
Just a friendly reminder that we are a mobile surf school. Please meet us at our surf kiosk in Small Bay opposite the famous “Blue Peter Restaurant” at the bottom of “De Mist Street”
Look out for our big blue surf office on wheels!
