Cape Town is a fantastic place to learn how to surf and enjoy the amazing feeling riding a wave gives you. We run all our surf lessons from our beachfront Open Ocean store in Big Bay, Blouberg, well known as one of the best places to learn to surf in Cape Town. Our instructors are superior surfers and we guarantee you’ll have a lot of fun learning this cool discipline, the right way. If you’re a confident surfer you can also rent a board & go out alone but please make sure you’re skilled enough to handle the elements.  Learn More.

Stand Up Paddling is one of the coolest ways to spend time in the ocean. Depending on your level you can either learn with us on calm water days, or rent a board on a wilder day for some wave riding thrills. Big Bay is a prime location to learn how to SUP, or if you’re confident enough, simply rent a board & go exploring with your friends. It’s up to you to make sure you are at the correct skill level for the conditions you go out in. Learn More.
