Gary’s Surf School
Surfing in Cape Town is definitely worth trying out (if only because you’ll really look the part in your suit and board, and it will make for amazing FB profile pictures). Operating since 1989, Gary’s is the oldest surf school in the country and popular amongst both locals and internationals looking for beginner and professional coaching. A two-hour lesson (with equipment for the entire day) costs R500; lessons happen every day at 9am, 11am, and 2pm. They also rent equipment to non-students.
