Group surf lesson - including transport VOUCHER

Cape Town

Activity Description

Learn to surf at one of Cape Town’s pristine beaches with our experienced, qualified coaches. A 1.5-hour group surf lesson includes the use of a warm wetsuit, surfboard and guarantees 100% ‘stoke’. No previous experience is required as we guide you through the surfing basics using our unique ‘Stoked’ teaching techniques. This service is self-drive.

If you have previous surf experience and are wanting to brush up on your skills, please let us know upon booking so we can advise your coach and group you accordingly if possible.

If you are ‘stoked’ after an ‘Experience the Stoke’ lesson and want to upgrade to the ‘Uber-Stoked’ package, simply pay the price difference and we will count your first surf lesson as lesson 1 of 4.

Our headquarters are located in Camps Bay so that we have easy accessibility to both coastlines of the Peninsula. Surf lessons take place at the most suitable beach depending on the conditions on the day of your booking. We check the surf forecast on several reliable sources and combine this information with our local knowledge to decide where we will coach each day. We consider factors such as wind, tides, swell direction and ocean temperatures before making our decision to provide the safest and most enjoyable experience to our surfing students.

Inclusions and Exclusions


Surf lessons are 1.5-hours long and include the use of:
*4:3 mm wetsuit, suitable surfboard, leash, wax
*Transport from one of our pre-determined city pick up points

ExclusionsPlease note we only collect at select pick up points for logistical reasons. If your exact pick up location is not on our list of pre-determined pick up points, please choose the one closest to you or email us your location so we can advise where best to meet our vehicle. Pick up locations have been strategically selected to ensure you do not need to travel/walk far to meet us if you are staying centrally in the city/Atlantic seaboard area.


We use high quality 4:3mm wetsuits to keep you warm throughout the year in the Cape Town waters. Wetsuits are well maintained-washed and rinsed after each use. We use beginner specific soft boards for those who have never touched a surfboard or only surfed a handful of times. These boards are easy to catch waves with and make standing easier as they are stable. If you have a bit more surfing experience and are wanting to use a regular epoxy/fibreglass board, kindly let us know at the time of booking.

For the transported option, we offer pick ups from locations in Cape Town city and surrounds (see pick up area list below). If you are located outside of the pick up area, we will ask you to meet us at a pre-arranged location in the city. If you are staying at a private residence/Airbnb etc, we will ask you to meet us at one of our regular pick up points closest to your accommodation. We will transport you to the beach in our comfortable van or our original surf school VW golf.

The following is the pick up schedule for our morning and afternoon lesson slots (please note the suburb where the closest pick up location is to your lodging to determine your approximate pick up time):

Camps Bay: 8:00-8:15am OR 1:00-1:15pm
City & Sea Point : 8:15-8:30am OR 1:15-1:30pm

Customer Reviews

All good, well planed, good training in smaller groups. One thing, I did not receive any picture from first day. - Gediminas

So MUCH FUN!! The whole experience, to be picked up get to know new people during the car ride and singing, LOVE the singing in the car. At the beach we all get exited and help each other in to the wetsuits and it's just laughs and smiling faces. Well in the water the coaches are super supportive and gets exited when you manage to catch a wave. Just, The VIBE is so so good you never want to leave, and just become a part of the surf team. Will recommend Stoked Surf School to everyone I know going to Cape Town or in CT looking for some help getting started or just an awesome team for company! 5 BIG STARS - Sara

I chose the group lesson with transport. It was my first time ever surfing and wasn't sure what to expect. The team (Henri, Rodolphe & Jack) arrived on time in a clean and comfortable shuttle to fetch me from my accommodation. They were extremely professional and friendly, this should ease the nerves for any first time surfer. We had a smooth drive from central CT to Muizenberg (about 25 mins drive). Once we reached the beach, the team quickly and efficiently arranged the boards and wetsuits and allowed us to get ready to surf. The lesson and surf session itself was brilliant, Jack was a patient coach. I was fortunate to be able to stand on my first surfing lesson. After catching a small wave, I was hooked. I booked two more sessions after this initial experience, I would definitely highly recommend "Stoked School of Surf", especially for beginner surfers! - Naweed

On my second session with Stoked, Jack taught me how to appropriately sit on my board and turn around quickly to begin paddling into a wave. I learned something new on each stoked experience. Highly recommended! - Naweed

On my final Stoked lesson (on my last day in CT), Henri took me for a lesson in a small group. I had a great final session and picked up some cool tips and tricks from Henri. Once I return to CT, I will definitely get in touch with Stoked again and hope to book some private lessons. - Naweed
