 South Africa

Afrique

Very consistent surf, world class surf waves, pretty uncrowded, sometimes sharky...

The people and beaches are among the nicest I've ever seen. You will be treated wonderfully. As far as surf goes, make sure to visit all of the traditional spots (Cape Town, Garden Route, J-Bay, Durban (no sharks in durbs)) but also not to miss some of the less-frequented areas such as the Transkei/Wild Coast. Be careful whose advice you take - many of the surfers are (unfortunately) paranoid. Explore (with care) the country and breaks for yourself.

South Africa for the most part is warm as the tropical east African current comes down the coast . so from Richards bay down to cape Infanta(150km east of CPT) you could get away with a rash vest . Cape Town is permanently wetsuit territory though you could hack it with a summer suit for about an hour .

tale of two halves - Started surfing about 100m up from 'the point' towards impossibles - got a few nice waves and a couple of closeouts - then either the tide was changing or I was out of position because for ages I didn't get any waves.  I eventually p

Cape Town - Port Elizabeth - Hey guys just wondering if anyone knows the top 5 or 6 breaks from Cape Town - prt Elizabeth????

Dont support Shark Cage Diving - Shark attacks on surfers in South Africa are increasing rapidly, and this could be due to the vast number of tourists going Shark Cage Diving. If you are thinking about doing it, read the facts on this website first, before putting yourself and the local surfers at risk. surfersagainstsharkcagediving.com
