The tolerant and relaxed atmosphere on the water reflects South African lifestyle at its best. Cape Town with its unique location between two oceans, the Atlantic and the Indian, gives you a variety of different surf spots and waves. Whether you're on a short- or longboard, beginner or expert, everyone will find "his" surf. Talk to us if you would like to book lessons, hire a board from us, or if you need tips on which spots to surf when. Furthermore, surfboards from South Africa are among the best in the world and can be bought from the local shapers at unbeatable prices. Let us help you choose the right board for your skills.


Having become one of the world's most popular kiteboarding spots over the past years, Cape Town’s conditions are ideal for beginners as well as for advanced kiters. Depending on the wind and on your skills you can rip between Milnerton and Langebaan! The coast is ideal for downwinders. You can get started in Milnerton and pass all the good spots like Sunset, Shipwreck, Karmas, DerdeSteen and Haagkat and end up in Melkbos: about 30 km of good down-winding await you. The downwind shuttle service can take you back home. The southeaster which blows here in the South African summer with its persistent four to seven beauforts makes Cape Town a kiters paradise. But even if the wind doesn't come up during the day you can still hope for thermal winds in the evening.


Cape Town lies at the southernmost tip of South Africa. Due to the good geographical position huge Atlantic swell rolls onto the coastline. At the same time, the "Cape Peninsula", which extends from Cape Town to the Cape of Good Hope between the Indian Ocean and Atlantic Ocean is one of the windiest places in the world. This combination allows sensational windsurfing conditions. Whether you're a bigwave rider a pure freestyler or even a newcomer – fun is guaranteed! All major spots can be reached from the Surf & Bike house by car within 10 min. Bloubergstrand is even within walking distance! Talk to us if you would like to book lessons, hire gear, or if you need tips on which spots to windsurf when.


On Hawaii SUPing was known to be the king's sport. Only a few selected besides him were allowed to move around on a board while standing up. Meanwhile everyone enjoys this sport and SUPing has become an integral part of water sports. The sport has become very big here. Whether you prefer SUPing in the canal, in waves or simply down-winding: Cape Town will meet all your requirements. Enjoy SUP Yoga lessons in the Southern Peninsula, SUP with the seals and penguins, race the canal for 5 km on Tuesdays or Wednesdays from Milnerton to Big Bay 30 km downwind. Thursdays race is in the harbor of the Waterfront for 5 km and if you like some more ladies vibes, join the SUPSistas every Thursday morning at Smallbay, 9am.
